The death toll went down from 700 in 2012 to 529 in 2013, i.e., by 24.4%; the number of wounded persons – from 525 to 457 (by 13%). However losses among civilians went up.

The total number of victims among law enforcers decreased from 595 to 424, or by 28.7%. The number of killed militants, which stood at 404 persons in 2012, dropped to 298 in 2013 – by 26.2%.
