"Caucasian Knot" sums up armed conflict outcomes in NCFD in 2014

In 2014, Northern Caucasus saw a dramatic reduction of the number of victims of the armed conflict. The "Caucasian Knot" has published detailed results of its calculations based on the data received from its own correspondents and information from open sources in the Section "Northern Caucasus – Statistics of Victims".

Among the regions of Northern Caucasus, in 2014, Chechnya was the only republic where the number of victims of the conflict went up. It follows from the statistics on Chechnya that in 2014 at least 117 people fell victim to the armed conflict, of whom at least 52 persons were killed and 65 others were wounded. As compared with 2013, the total number of victims (there were 101 of them then) went up by 15.8%. Last year Chechnya had more perished militants, power agents and civilians than in 2013.

The statistics for Dagestan, which remained the leader in the number of victims among the regions of Northern Caucasus, shows that the republic preserved its leadership in 2014, except for Quarter 4, when Chechnya had more victims than Dagestan.

However, in Dagestan, in 2014, the number of killed and wounded persons went down by 54.3%. The total number of victims of the conflict decreased from 641 people (of which 341 people were killed and at least 300 wounded) in 2013 down to 293 people, including 208 killed and 85 wounded. The number of victims of terror acts dropped 9.9-fold as compared with 2013.

The results of monitoring the situation in Kabardino-Balkaria show that here, during 2014, at least 66 victims of the armed conflict were recorded, including 49 killed and 17 wounded people. That is, a reducing in the number of victims by 46.3%, as compared to 2013, was observed, when the number of victims amounted to 123 people. Last year, the republic saw no terror acts, but four explosions.

According to the statistics of the "Caucasian Knot", in 2014, in Ingushetia, at least 37 people fell victim to the conflict, including 21 killed and 16 wounded persons. As compared with 2013, the total count of victims decreased by 60.6%, and among the civilian population the decrease was tenfold.

The Stavropol Territory had at least 11 victims, of whom 10 were killed and one was wounded. The count of victims was by 35.3% less than in 2013, when in total there were 17 killed and wounded persons.

In 2014, in the Republic of North Ossetia-Alania, one person was killed in the armed conflict. As compared with 2013, the total number of victims decreased by 66.7%, while the number of civilian victims remained the same.

It follows from the calculations of the "Caucasian Knot" that in 2014, in Karachay-Cherkessia, the situation stabilized – there were no victims of the armed conflict. In 2013, the republic had at least 7 victims of the armed conflict.
