In the period from January 1 to March 31, 2019, at least eight persons fell victim to the armed conflict in Kabardino-Balkaria. These are the results of the calculations run by the "Caucasian Knot" based on its own materials and information from open sources.
Seven casualties were announced to be militants. Besides, one law enforcer was killed. There was no information about any losses among civilians.
In January, five people fell victim to the armed conflict. While attempting to attack law enforcers, four alleged members of an illegal armed formation (IAF) were killed, and a policeman was wounded. Another three alleged militants were killed in February. Meanwhile, there was no information on victims to the armed conflict in March.
The provided statistics cannot reflect the number of victims with the 100 percent accuracy. Not all information is included in the news reports. It is not always possible to check the reliability of the statements voiced by the law enforcement bodies. Besides, new facts about the events of the reporting period become often known after the statistics had been already published on the "Caucasian Knot".
