In the Malgobek District of Ingushetia, at least seven armed incidents preceded the current special operation carried out by law enforcers. The reports about five of them mentioned the names of the people killed in the Psedakh village.
Today, the counterterrorist operation (CTO) legal regime has been introduced in the village of Psedakh, and law enforcers killed four suspected militants. A source from the law enforcement agencies reported that according to the preliminary information, three persons were killed, including Bekkhan Soltukiev, the leader of the Malgobek grouping of militants, and his supporters Mikail Cherbizhev, and Khasan Khatsiev. They were put on the wanted list in the case of an attack on policemen committed on April 8 and a shelling of a FSB building.
According to the "Caucasian Knot", recently, in the Malgobek District, the CTO legal regime was introduced on September 18, 2013. The CTO legal regime was also introduced in the territories of the Sunzha and Nazran Districts of Ingushetia. It was lifted on May 27, 2014.
