  • Law enforcers consider picket of Kumyk activist Bektemir Salikhov as hooliganism

    Today, activist Bektemir Salikhov has held a solo picket in Makhachkala. He demands from the Dagestani authorities to assist in the return of land to residents of the Kumyk villages of Alburikent, Kyakhulai, and Tarki, from which they were evicted during the Stalinist repressions. The police drew up against Bektemir Salikhov an administrative report for petty hooliganism, because the activist glued his posters to the pedestal of the Lenin monument.
