Khusey Makitov, 29, was shot dead in Elbrus on April 6. Two law enforcers were detained on suspicion of committing the murder. According to locals, Makitov had refused to give them a lift to Terskol, which triggered a conflict of them. On April 9, a law enforcement source reported that the suspects had been arrested.

Five members of the initiative group, who were elected by the non-sanctioned rally, were instructed to apply to the Investigating Committee of the Russian Federation (ICRF) and the GPO, and to cover the inquiry progress in social networks. After the rally, the group had a meeting with Mukhamed Kodzokov, the head of the KBR leader's office, and Kazbek Tatuev, Secretary of the Security Council of the KBR.
