Residents of the subjects of the North-Caucasian Federal District (NCFD) have celebrated the Muslim holiday of Eid ul-Fitr (Uraza Bayram), which marks the end of the fasting during the holy month of Ramadan.
During the week of July 21-27, 2014, at least 6 persons suffered in the armed conflict in Northern Caucasus. Of them, 5 persons were killed, and 1 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.
Arsen Radjabov, the advocate of Isa Abdulkadyrov, detained in Dagestan on suspicion of illegal possession of firearms, told the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent that his client was taken by policemen to some unknown place, and he cannot find him.
Alexei Aleturovich, a regular soldier, recruited from the Kirov Region, was found dead in a military unit in Buynaksk, the military prosecutor's office of the city has reported today. His relatives believe that Alexei could become a victim to the hazing in the army unit.
The celebration of the end of the fasting month of Ramadan – 'Id al-Fitr – will last for three days in Chechnya, from July 28 to July 30. These days will be days-off. On these days wealthy Muslims are expected to help the poor and needy ones.
In Dagestan, relatives of the local Asoltan Amaev, who was found on July 23 blown up in his car, question the official version of the reason for his death. "Why don't law enforcers want to see the obvious: Asoltan was killed, and the rest was just a staging," one of the relatives claims.
The Supreme Court of Dagestan has begun considering the appeal complaint against the verdict passed by the Buynaksk City Court against Zarema Bagavutdinova, an activist of the Dagestani Regional Public Organization "Pravozaschita" (Advocacy). At the July 23 court session, the defence asked to cancel the verdict against Bagavutdinova.
Aisha Selimkhanova, an activist of the DRPO "Pravozaschita", told the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent that all the mosque-goers detained at night on July 23 in Hungarian Fighters Street had been released.
Asoltan Amaev, a resident of the settlement Tarki of Makhachkala, who was considered missing, was found burned down in his car on the road in the Kumtorkalin District, said the Dagestani Regional Public Organization (DRPO) "Pravozaschita" (Advocacy).
Last night, law enforcers of the capital of Dagestan conducted mass detentions of mosque-goers in Hungarian Fighters Street, according to eyewitnesses. Several worshipers from the mosque in Kotrov Street were also taken to the police.
