Week of June 22-28 passed without victims of armed conflict in Northern Caucasus
During the week of June 22-28, 2020, in the course of armed conflict in Northern Caucasus, no casualties or wounded persons were recorded. These are the results of the calculations run by the "Caucasian Knot" based on its own materials and information from open sources.
On June 25, at least nine persons were detained after searches in the village of Psyzh in the Abazinsky District of the Karachay-Cherkessian Republic (KChR), where Abazins live. Detainees' relatives reported that law enforcers had planted weapons on two detainees, and extremist literature – on the rest of them. Dozens of villagers gathered outside the building of the Centre for Combating Extremism (CCE) in Cherkessk, the KChR capital, and demanded to explain where the detainees were kept, but received no answer. According to relatives, advocates are not allowed to visit the detainees.
