Policeman wounded in Chechnya operated on
An employee of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) of Chechnya, who was seriously wounded by a mine explosion in the vicinity of Vedeno, was operated on in a Grozny hospital after receiving multiple shrapnel wounds; while his colleague was contused and received moderate-gravity wounds.
The condition of the policeman after surgery remains grave, a local law enforcement source told the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent.
Earlier, the explosion of a mine in the forest near Vedeno, which killed the alleged militant and wounded two policemen, was reported by sources of the portal "Kavkaz.Realii".
The policemen, together with the detainee, were screening the territory, trying to find a militants’ hideout, the source has explained, adding that "presumably, the militant stepped on a mine and was killed on the spot."
He has noted that when screening mountain-woodland and dangerous areas, as a rule, the territory should be first inspected by sappers.
