In December 2020, during the armed conflict in Northern Caucasus, 7 people perished and 7 others were wounded. These are the results of the calculations run by the "Caucasian Knot" based on its own materials and information from open sources.

The above statistics given cannot present the count of victims with 100% accuracy. Not all the data is included into summaries. It is not always possible to check the statements of law enforcement agencies; and new data on the events of the reporting period becomes known sometimes after the publication of statistics by the "Caucasian Knot".

In Chechnya, during a special operation and attacks on law enforcers, six people perished and one was wounded. The death toll includes one law enforcer and five alleged members of the armed underground; one law enforcer was wounded.

In Karachay-Cherkessia, a self-detonation killed one person; according to law enforcers, he had links with the armed underground; and six law enforcers were wounded.
