The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on October 4, the authorities of Ingushetia reported that at a parliament session, out of 25 MPs, 17 voted to ratify the agreement on the administrative border with Chechnya. On the same day, amid a mass protest in Magas, Ingush leader Yunus-Bek Evkurov signed the law on the establishment of the border.

According to sources, the MPs themselves stated that 24 delegates attended the parliament session, and of them, five voted "for", 15 "against", and four spoiled the ballots.

More than ten delegates of the Ingush National Assembly claimed fraud during the voting on the law on the border between Ingushetia and Chechnya, noted Zakriy Mamilov, a member of the National Assembly.

Today, in Magas, despite the bad weather, the activists continued a spontaneous protest against the exchange of territories with Chechnya.

In Magas, the protesters demand to hold a new open session of the parliament to be attended by religious and public figures, reported Magomed Mutsolgov, a blogger of the "Caucasian Knot".
