    American media is trying their best to Scare American citizens about the threat of ISIS.. that they are more
    dangerous than Alqaeda..and that it is neccesary for US army to act.. and fight them in Syria. Rolling Eyes
    Is the same thing of 9/11 , that time it was Alqaeda the danger .. and suddenly now Alqaeda doesn't matter.
    Now any islamic fighter in the world western governments call them ISIS.. and not knowing how their government
    are the hands that feed the terrorist and support them.. The ISIS leader was in a US prison and released so he could fight in Syria.. and now MCAIN expect the world to believe that he or neither the US government knew who he was.
    When a photo show up , of MCCAIN meeting with ISIS leader when he visit Syria and other terrorist groups.

    Russian forces kill over 250 militants in North Caucasus in 2014 — interior minister

    MOSCOW, March 25. /TASS/. Russian security forces killed more than 250 militants in the volatile North Caucasus region last year and detained over 400 members of illegal armed groups and their allies, Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev said on Wednesday.

    "Our special task is to work together with the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) to counteract terrorism and the most serious forms of extremism," Kolokoltsev told "government hour" in the Federation Council, Russia's upper house of parliament.

    "In 2014, more than 250 armed group members were eliminated as a result of cooperative activities and joint special operations in the North Caucasus Federal District. Over 400 members of illegal military formations and their allies were detained," he said.

    Cooperation with investigation and prosecution agencies, and the FSB, made it possible to clamp down on eight extremist groups and two terrorist organisations, the minister said.

    More than 350 publications deemed extremist were included in the Federal List of Extremist Materials. This contained more than 1,000 items, mostly related to banned religious and ultra-nationalist groups or those deemed to have a fascist ideology.

    Tens of thousands of banned extremist materials, including over 85,000 flags, symbols and attributes, were seized during investigative operations, he added.

    Over the past 10 years, Russian law enforcement authorities had consistently revealed manifestations of extremist behaviour, Kolokoltsev said, noting more than 1,000 incidents recorded last year.

    "The number of perpetrators identified has grown by a quarter," he said, adding that most crimes and offences related to extremist activity had been detected over the Internet.

    The number of extremist-related crimes revealed increased by 39% last year, the minister said. "More than 2,000 pieces of online extremist material were removed from the Web," he said. "Over 700 websites were blocked. About 1,000 people were brought to justice."

    War on terror in Russia's Dagestan: 160 gunmen eliminated by security forces in 2014

    During investigative operations, 232 members of illegal armed groups were detained and 11 surrendered

    MAKHACHKALA, March 26. /TASS/. More than 160 gunmen who offered resistance to security forces were wiped out in the North Caucasus Republic of Dagestan last year, Dagestan’s Interior Minister Abdurashid Magomedov said on Thursday.

    "Security forces prevented 20 acts of sabotage and terrorist attacks with the use of explosive devices… They eliminated 161 gunmen who maintained resistance. During investigative operations, 232 members of illegal armed groups were detained and 11 surrendered," Magomedov told a session of the People’s Assembly of Dagestan.

    According to Magomedov, last year security forces in Dagestan discovered and destroyed 16 trench shelters and 8 temporary camps of illegal armed groups, 62 hideouts with weapons, ammunition, explosive devices, food and personal belongings.

    "As a result of terrorist attacks 24 people were killed, including two civilians, 75 others were wounded, among them 7 civilians," the minister said, adding that 103 attacks on law enforcement officers were registered last year (compared to 185 in 2013).

    Magomedov noted that the total number of terrorist crimes in Dagestan grew in 2014 amounting to 472 (compared to 365 in 2013). The number of extremist crimes grew as well, totaling 50 (compared to 24 in 2013).

    Several leaders of int’l terrorist organizations presumably blocked in Buinaksk suburb

    MOSCOW, April 19. /TASS/. An active phase of a special operation has been resumed in a suburb of Buinaksk in Russia’s North Caucasian Republic of Dagestan, which several leaders of international terrorist organizations presumable blocked in a private house, a spokesman for the National Anti-terrorist Committee told TASS on Sunday.

    "According to preliminary data, among the gunmen blocked in a private house are a number of leaders of an international terrorist organization," the spokesman said.

    The active phase of the special operation was suspended after dark. But after a powerful explosion had rocked the house and gunfire had been opened at the police from the windows, the counter-terrorist operation was resumed.

    "The gunmen were not let leave the house. Two of them were neutralized," the spokesman said, adding that the special operation would be completed in the morning.

    Earlier on Sunday, Russia’s Federal Security Service received information that a group of armed men was hiding in a private house in Buinaksk’s Gerei-Avlak suburb.

    The National Anti-terrorist Committee’s Dagestan chief took a decision to launch an anti-terrorist operation on Sunday morning to prevent acts of terror and ensure security of civilians.

    The house was blocked by security and police officers. Residents of neighboring houses were evacuated. Along with the gunmen, there were two women and a child inside the house. After negotiations with the police, terrorists blocked in the house released the child but refused to surrender weapons. The women refused to leave the house.

    Militant leader killed in Dagestan

    MAKHACHKALA, June 6. /TASS/. A local militant leader was killed early Saturday in the Russian North Caucasus republic of Dagestan, Russia’s National Antiterrorism Committee (NAC) said Saturday.

    The NAC said the militant was preliminarily identified as the leader of a militant group that acted in the Khasavyurt District, Suleiman Zainalobidov, born in 1979.

    "According to the NAC operational headquarters in Dagestan, Zainalobidov has been in hiding for over 10 years, and last December he swore allegiance to the international terrorist organization IS [Islamic State]," the NAC said.

    Zainalobidov is believed to have been directly involved in attacks on law enforcement officers, in particular in the murder in December 2013 of a regional Federal Security Service (FSB) Department officer, as well as extortion of money from entrepreneurs.

    During this night’s check of cars at a road near the locality of Michurino near Khasavyurt, FSB and Interior Ministry units tried to stop a VAZ-2109 car.

    "The driver did not obey the lawful demands of law enforcers, opened fire from automatic weapons and tried to escape. He was neutralized by return fire," a NAC spokesman said.

    No law enforcers or civilians are reported to have been killed or injured.

    "During an inspection of the gunfight site, a considerable arsenal was found with the bandit: eight grenades, two assault rifles, a handgun, ten magazines for the rifles and three for the handgun, as well as several sets of car license plates issued in three different regions," he said.

    An investigation is underway.

    Russia’s law enforcement agencies continue fighting militants in the North Caucasus over 14 years since the battle phase of the second war against Islamist separatists in Chechnya came to an end in 2000. Attacks on security officials and civilians occur from time to time in Dagestan, Ingushetia and Kabardino-Balkaria.

    Special Forces buy their own personal weapons to use, surely not a decision most would go with buying some horrible weapon designs for such specific role.

    Three suspected militants killed in shootout with police in Dagestan

    Overnight to Monday, police officers tried to stop a vehicle for a check, but unknown assailants riding in the car opened fire, which injured a police officer

    MAKHACHKALA, August 24. /TASS/. Three suspected militants have been killed in a shootout with police near Makhachkala, the capital of Russia’s North Caucasus republic of Dagestan, a law enforcement source said.

    The source said one policeman was injured.

    Overnight to Monday, police officers tried to stop a vehicle for a check, but unknown assailants riding in the car opened fire, which injured a police officer.

    "The three men inside the car were killed by return fire," the source said.

    The developments occurred in the village of Novy Khushet, where a counterterrorism operation regime was imposed on Sunday.

    Russia’s law enforcement agencies continue fighting militants in the North Caucasus over 14 years since the battle phase of the second war against Islamist separatists in Chechnya came to an end in 2000.

    Counter-terrorism operation underway in Russia’s Dagestan

    Almost a half of Russia's major counter-terrorism operations are carried out in Dagestan

    MAKHACHKALA, February 12. /TASS/. A regime of counter-terrorism operation was introduced in the Khasavyurtovsky district in Russia’s North Caucasus republic of Dagestan early on Friday, a spokesperson for the operation headquarters of the National Anti-terrorism Committee has said.

    "The regime was imposed in the Khasavyurtovsky district at 5 a.m. (0200GMT). An effort is underway to search for gunmen," he said.

    Almost a half of major counter-terrorism operations are carried out in Dagestan, also to neutralize suicide bombers. In the Kabardino-Balkar Republic, almost 30% of such operations are conducted, while Ingushetia and Chechnya account for the remaining effort.

    This is the fourth counter-terrorism operation of the National Anti-terrorism Committee since the start of the year to neutralize gunmen in Dagestan organized by the task force.

    Last year, 23 special operations were conducted in the crime-prone areas of the republic - the central zone of Khasavyurt, Makhachkala and Buynaksk. In 2014, 74 counter-terrorism operations and more than 16,000 military operations were carried out in the North Caucasus, according to the Federal Security Service (FSB).

    Russia’s special services prevented over 30 terrorism-related crimes and killed 51 gunmen in 2015. Almost 3,000 Russians who are suspected of links to terrorist organizations and more than 1,600 sponsors of terrorists were also identified.

    The most large-scale terrorist activities in Dagestan came in 1999, when gunmen of warlords Shamil Basayev and Khattab attacked a settlement in Botlikh region in August, killing 73 people and wounding 259. A month later some 2,000 Shamil Basayev's gunmen crossed the administrative border between Chechnya and Dagestan, occupying several settlements. All terrorists were killed, but federal losses amounted to 243 people.

    Kadyrov, Chechnya and the Caucasus

    Post  Firebird on Sun Feb 28, 2016 2:28 pm

    So Kadyrov is stepping down. OK we knew he was a piece of Islamist shit. But a useful one, to some degree. And not the worst. Surely we all know he couldn't have been trusted even if he did some good things. Look what duplicitous scum Terdogan, Obummer and the like are. But what do people think will happen in Chechnya and the Caucasus now he's supposedly stepping down?

    Is it time to take back what was Chechnya's fairly high level of autonomy? Will there be serious unrest?
    Will huge scandals break over Kadyrov? Will he remain in control with Kremlin approval or disappear?
    Will there be a substantial re-Russification of the region, bearing in mind the appalling level of ethnic "cleansing" in the recent past?

    Ruling it like a colony (current state of affairs) is a better option.
    If Russia wants to establish a solid, "Christian", anti-"moderate" footing in the Caucasus they need to work with both Georgia and Armenia.
