In Rostov-on-Don, at the first court hearing in the case of an attack on soldiers in 2000 in the Argun Gorge, Ayub Tuntuev, a former agent of the security service of the Chechen president, pleaded not guilty. According to the defendant, the case against him was fabricated.

At the first court hearing held in Rostov-on-Don on March 6, the court pronounced an indictment, and after that, the defendant pleaded not guilty.
