In the period from October 1 to December 31, 2017, in the territory of Kabardino-Balkaria, at least one person fell victim to the armed conflict: he was killed. These are the results of the calculations run by the "Caucasian Knot" based on its own materials and information from other open sources.
The victim was a suspected militant killed during his detention on December 15, 2017.
The "Caucasian Knot" notes that the provided statistics cannot reflect the number of victims with the 100 percent accuracy. Not all information is included in the news reports. It is not always possible to check the reliability of the statements voiced by the law enforcement bodies. Besides, new facts about the events of the reporting period become often known after the statistics had been already published on the "Caucasian Knot".
In the first, second and third quarters of 2017, no information was reported about victims to the armed confrontation between law enforcers and militants in the territory of the Kabardino-Balkarian Republic (KBR).
For the whole year of 2016, in the territory of Kabardino-Balkaria, at least 15 people, including 14 killed and one wounded, fell victim to the armed conflict.
