During the week from April 26 to May 2, 2021, one person died during 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.

The casualty is a resident of Ingushetia, who, according to some sources, had links to the activities of the armed underground.

Attacks on law enforcers

On April 28, in an outskirt of Nazran, near the border with North Ossetia and Ingushetia, law enforcers stopped a car for inspection. The driver put up armed resistance and was killed by return fire. According to preliminary information, the casualty was a wanted resident of the village of Kantyshevo, a member of an illegal armed formation (IAF). Another source said that the casualty was wanted for the use of violence against state officials, but "was not a member of any IAF."
