On September 7-13, no victims of armed conflict in Northern Caucasus were recorded

During the week, from September 7 to September 13, 2020, no information was received about the victims of the armed conflict in Northern Caucasus. These are the results of the calculations run by the "Caucasian Knot" based on its own materials and information from other open sources.

Attack on law enforcers

In the evening on September 7, at the stationary post "Mayak 12", near the village of Yuzhny, Malgobek District of Ingushetia, a traffic police inspector stopped a Toyota Camry car without number plates to check documents. The driver, a resident of Nazran, born in 1978, and two passengers were wearing masks with eye slits and carrying firearms. They got out of the car and went to the inspector. His colleague tried to block their way; the driver pointed a pistol in his direction and began threatening to kill him. He tried to shoot twice, but the policemen, by using force, detained the driver and his passengers.

Let us remind you that in the previous week, from August 31 to September 6, no victims of the armed conflict were recorded too.
