Residents of Vremenny complain to Ramazan Abdulatipov about law enforcers' actions

On October 19, in Dagestan, residents of the village of Vremenny of the Untsukul District sent an appeal to Dagestani leader Ramazan Abdulatipov, asking to pay attention to their situation and to form a commission to verify the facts of human rights violations committed by law enforcers in the area of the counterterrorist operation (CTO).

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that the special operation underway in the village of Vremenny adjacent to the village of Gimry was started on September 18. According to the villagers, the school and the kindergarten in the village do not work, the local residents face shortage of food products, and the law enforcers destroy farm buildings. In the period of the special operation, most of the local residents left the village.

"Among us, we have children with disabilities, old and sick people, and pregnant women. The children are frightened, and some of them have already got stuttering and incontinence. The weather is cold already, and we are not allowed to enter the village to take our warm clothes," the villagers stated in their appeal.

The authors of the appeal also mention that the law enforcers did not allow rights defenders to visit the local residents. In their appeal, the villagers also emphasize that the fruit orchards remain the only source of income for many local residents; however, after the CTO, the villagers found their orchards destroyed.

According to a woman from the village, the local residents feel fear of revenge for the fact that they have made public what is happening in the village of Vremenny.

It should be noted that on October 18, in village of Vremenny, the law enforcers detained three suspected militants in a bunker discovered.
