Deputies of district assembly, rural settlements, and activists of the Nogai District have sent an appeal to Oleg Belaventsev, Russian presidential envoy to the North-Caucasus Federal District (NCFD). In their appeal, they express an urgent request to take measures to resolve the situation in the Nogai District where the conflict arose on the basis of the election of the head for the Nogai district administration.

"We, the deputies of the district assembly, the deputies of rural settlements, and the activists of the Nogai District of Dagestan request you to take urgent measures to resolve the political conflict which is gaining momentum every day and poses a threat to stability in our district," states the appeal a copy of which is available to the "Caucasian Knot".
