Relatives of detained Derbent residents go on hunger strike
Today, the mothers of the detained Islam Barzukaev and Gasan Kurbanov began a protest rally in Derbent, demanding to release their sons, a Kurbanov's female relative has informed.
The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on June 15, relatives of three residents of Derbent appealed to the police with statements about their kidnapping.
