Today, the counterterrorist operation (CTO) regime, introduced on September 27 on the border of the Kazbek and Gumbet Districts regions of Dagestan in connection with a search of militants, has been cancelled, the republic's operative headquarters said.
At night on September 27, Sakhratula Magomedov, a resident of Kizilyurt, who was reported missing since September 25, was found, a city source told the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent. However, this information has not yet been officially confirmed.
The decision to suspend the investigation into the murder of the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent Akhmednabi Akhmednabiyev was cancelled by the Kirov District Prosecutor's Office of Makhachkala. As suggested by the lawyer Abdurashid Sheikhov, the cancellation was made retroactively.
A local woman told the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent today that law enforcers offered the residents of the settlement of Vremenny, Untsukul District of Dagestan, to leave their settlement. According to her story, residents refused to do it, fearing for their property.
On September 26, representatives of the Human Rights Centre (HRC) "Memorial" and Human Rights Watch (HRW) tried to visit the settlement of Vremenny to see what was happening there in terms of human rights, but the power agents at the checkpoint at the crossroads leading to Vremenny and the village of Gimry village refused to let rights defenders to move farther, says the HRC's release received today by the "Caucasian Knot".
During the week of September 22-28, 2014, at least two persons were killed in the armed conflict in Northern Caucasus. One person was wounded. These are the results of calculations made by the "Caucasian Knot" based on its own materials and information from other open sources. The death toll includes one suspected member of the armed underground and one civilian, both of them in Dagestan.
Today, the cities of the South Federal District (SFD) and the North-Caucasian Federal District (NCFD) of the Russian Federation have held actions of nationwide solidarity for the preservation of the Central Black Earth Economic Region and against the decision on mining of nickel in the Khopyor River area.
On September 26, in the Volgograd Region, policemen removed a 43-year-old man without any ID from the bus route "Makhachkala-Moscow". The detainee claims that he spent the past 18 years in slavery in Dagestan, where his passport was taken away from him. After the man gave his explanations to law enforcers, they released him, and he went to Moscow by hitchhiking. This was reported by the volunteer organization "Alternative".
In Dagestan, on Saturday, the legal regime of the counterterrorist operation (CTO) was introduced in connection with searches of suspected militants at the junction of the Gumbet and Kazbek Districts, said the Operative Headquarters of the Russia's National Antiterrorist Committee (NAC) in Dagestan.
As of Saturday morning, the whereabouts of Sakhratula Magomedov, a resident of Kizilyurt, who was kidnapped in the evening on September 25, has not been established, said Aisha Selimkhanova, an employee of the Dagestani Regional Public Organization (DRPO) "Pravozaschita" (Advocacy).
