    In 2017, most regions of the NCFD, with the exception of Dagestan and Kabardino-Balkaria, registered an increase in the number of victims to the armed conflict, especially among the civilian population. In Chechnya and Ingushetia, the number of victims among law enforcers also increased. This is especially noticeable against amid the general trend towards a decrease in the number of wounded and killed people, as indicated by the calculations run by the "Caucasian Knot" over the past eight years. The alarming statistics concerning the victims to the armed conflict in 2017 calls into question the effectiveness of an exclusively forceful fight against terrorism.

    In 2017, as compared to 2016, the number of victims to the armed conflict in Northern Caucasus decreased by 39%, from 287 to 175 people. The number of armed incidents and the number of bombings also decreased, but the number of civilian casualties significantly increased by 63%. To a greater extent, the above can be explained by the events in Chechnya, which for the first time in many years moved Dagestan to the second place in the number of victims. Last year, out of all the regions in the North-Caucasian Federal District (NCFD), Chechnya registered the highest number of killed and wounded.
