    Terror in Northern Caucasus continues; in the first half of 2019, 31 people were killed and wounded in the North-Caucasian Federal District (NCFD) – less than during the first six months of 2018. In general, last year, as compared to 2017, there were fewer shootouts, explosions and deaths, but not everywhere. In the Kabardino-Balkarian Republic (KBR) and the Stavropol Territory, the number of victims went up. The largest count of those killed and wounded was in Dagestan, with Chechnya taking the second place. The present review of the "Caucasian Knot" presents not only the latest data on the conflict victims. A circular diagram based on the data for eight years clearly shows how the situation was changing within each region of the NCFD; while the interactive infographics allows comparing the dynamics in different NCFD Caucasus during 2011-2018.

    The practice to deport natives of Northern Caucasus to Russia contradicts the principles of the international law. People who seek asylum in Europe are victims of domestic violence and unlawful criminal prosecution, as well as those who are being harassed in their homeland for their religious beliefs. This is stated in the report prepared by human rights defender Svetlana Gannushkina, extracts from which the "Caucasian Knot" publishes.
