Week of October 22-28 did without victims of armed conflict in Northern Caucasus

During the week of October 22-28, 2018, there were no casualties and victims in the armed conflict in Northern Caucasus. These are the results of the calculations run by the "Caucasian Knot" based on its own materials and information from other open sources.


On October 23, it became known that four residents of the Buynaksk District of Dagestan, including two teenagers, had been detained on suspicion of illegal arms trafficking. Law enforcers detained the young men with weapons two kilometres off the village of Manasaul, Buynaksk District. According to investigators, the young people have illegally purchased from an unknown person "two revolvers, one pistol, two grenades and more than 100 cartridges," after which they were illegally carrying the firearms on them. Reports about the disappearance of four young people in Buynaksk appeared on social networks last week; their relatives did not know their whereabouts for several days. They consider that the weapons were planted on the young men.
