In Stavropol, the counterterrorist operation (CTO) legal regime has been lifted after the completion of a special operation.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that at night on December 9, the CTO legal regime was introduced in the centre of Stavropol. According to an officer from the FSB Department for the Stavropol Territory, the CTO legal regime was introduced to prevent a terror act.

"Starting from 4:30 a.m. on Saturday (December 9), the CTO legal regime is cancelled," reported the FSB Department for the Stavropol Territory as quoted by the "Interfax".
