A resident of Buynaksk, who posted calls in social networks to participate in protests against regular power outages, has been sentenced to four months of freedom restriction.
The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that since January 11, residents of Dagestan have been massively complaining about problems with electricity supplies. On January 13, residents of a village near Makhachkala went out to a protest action, stating that they had been deprived of electricity for the fourth day; after the action the power supply was restored.
