Law enforcers have detained Magomed-Bashir Ozdoev within the case of the rally in Magas, and took him to Nalchik, said Magomed Bekov, an advocate for Ingush activists.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that the Kislovodsk City Court is trying leaders of protests that were held in Ingushetia in March 2019. They are charged with creating an extremist community.

Since the beginning of April 2019, mass arrests of oppositionists were undertaken all over the republic. By the end of September, the sentences against 25 out of the 44 defendants accused of clashes with law enforcers came into force.
