In May 2020, nine people suffered during armed conflict in Northern Caucasus

In May 2020, in the armed conflict in Northern Caucasus, nine people suffered; eight 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.

In Dagestan, during a special operation, six alleged members of the armed underground were killed, and one law enforcer was wounded.

In Ingushetia, two alleged members of the armed underground were killed in a special operation.

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

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".
