In July 2020, five people perished during armed conflict in Northern Caucasus

In July 2020, in the armed conflict in Northern Caucasus, five people perished; no information about the wounded ones was reported. These are the results of the calculations run by the "Caucasian Knot" based on its own materials and information from open sources.

The death toll includes four alleged members of the armed underground and one law enforcer.

In Kabardino-Balkaria, during a special operation, four alleged members of the armed underground were killed.

In Ingushetia, an employee of the "Rosgvardia" (Russian National Guard) was killed after being attacked by unidentified persons.

In Dagestan, Karachay-Cherkessia, North Ossetia-Alania, Stavropol Territory and Chechnya, no victims of the armed conflict were recorded in July.

The presented statistics cannot reflect the victim count with 100% accuracy. Not all the data is included in the news bulletins. It is not always possible to check whether the statements of law enforcement bodies correspond to reality; and new data on the events of the reporting period become known sometimes after the publication of statistics by the "Caucasian Knot".
