In Khasavyurt, spontaneous protest action attracts attention of law enforcers

Today, residents of Khasavyurt have gathered in front of the "Gazprom" branch building and demanded to resume the supply of gas to their houses. Law enforcers arrived at the place of the spontaneous protest.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that residents of Khasavyurt expressed their indignation about systematic cutoffs of gas supply. On October 19, in protest, the city residents blocked the traffic along one of the city's avenues. The authorities reported that the protestors filed a complaint against the gas supply company to the government of Dagestan, but on October 25, participants of a gathering in Khasavyurt claimed that the problem was not solved.

Today, in Makhachkala, the residents of Khasavyurt have come to the "Gazprom" branch building to express their indignation about the tariffs and the deterioration of city networks, which provoked cutoffs of gas and heating supply to the houses.

About 100 people, mostly women, tried to break down the doors of the "Gazprom" branch building, the newspaper "Chernovik" (Rough Draft) reports.
