Opening of checkpoints on Chechen border indicates tensions in the region

Police posts on the Chechen border are needed for security, the experts, Andrei Serenko and Ruslan Gereev, believe. Alexander Perendjiev, a political analyst, thinks that Ramzan Kadyrov's calls to eliminate all the block posts in Northern Caucasus were just populism.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that in the Shelkovskoy District of Chechnya, which borders on Dagestan, the buildings of two new Chechen police checkpoints were opened. Social network users pointed to Kadyrov's inconsistency, since earlier he advocated the closure of such posts.

Alexander Perendjiev did not rule out that the posts appeared in connection with the suspension of the demarcation process of Chechen-Dagestani border. "Kadyrov would like to control the whole situation in his own country and, in a sense, to close up from other republics," The political analyst has explained.

Ruslan Gereev, an Islam scientist, believes that the security situation in the region is improving every year; and the erection of the block posts has to do with the New Year period. In his opinion, the new posts could not appear against Kadyrov's will.
