In Quarter 2 of 2020, 11 people suffered in armed conflict in Northern Caucasus

At least 11 people suffered in the armed conflict in Northern Caucasus in Quarter 2 of 2020: 10 persons perished and one was wounded. These are the results of the calculations run by the "Caucasian Knot" based on its own materials and information from open sources.

All the 10 casualties were involved, according to law enforcement bodies, in illegal armed formations (IAFs).

In Dagestan, in Quarter 2 of 2020, during the armed conflict, seven alleged members of the armed underground were killed and one law enforcer was wounded.

Two alleged members of the armed underground perished in Ingushetia.

In the Stavropol Territory, one person was killed, who, according to law enforcers, was involved in the activities of the armed underground.

In Kabardino-Balkaria, Karachay-Cherkessia, the Republic of North Ossetia-Alania and Chechnya, no victims of the armed conflict were recorded.

The presented statistics cannot reflect the victim count with 100% accuracy. Not all the data is included in the news bulletins. It is not always possible to check whether the statements of law enforcement bodies correspond to reality; and new data on the events of the reporting period become known sometimes after the publication of statistics by the "Caucasian Knot".
