Woman from North Ossetia fined for video with firing in police uniform

In Chechnya, the court fined Malika Djikaeva for 40,000 roubles after a video had been posted with her firing from a submachine gun and a pistol while wearing the uniform of a policewoman.

The law enforcement bodies of Chechnya have launched a check after the video was posted on the Internet in which Malika Djikaeva, wearing a hijab and a policewoman's uniform, fired into the air from a submachine gun and a pistol. The video was presumably filmed in the territory of the Chechen Republic, the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent was told by an official from the Chechen Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA). "Employees ... who handed over to the civilian the service guns and allowed shooting will be dismissed from the police service. Malika Djikaeva herself will also be punished," said the MIA's official.

"The magistrate of the judicial district No. 44 in the Gudermes District of the Chechen Republic considered an administrative case against Malika Djikaeva and sentenced her to an administrative fine in the amount of 40,000 roubles. The check is underway carried out by the MIA for the Chechen Republic in relation to the persons who committed the offense," reported the Chechen MIA on its Instagram on page on June 18.
