2 Rebels Slain in Caucasus

ROSTOV-ON-DON — Two insurgents have been killed in separate incidents in Dagestan and Kabardino-Balkaria, officials said.

A spokesman for the Dagestani Interior Ministry, Vyacheslav Gasanov, said three insurgents opened fire Friday on the local office of the Federal Security Service in the city of Derbent. Police tracked them down and killed one, while another fled into a residence where police were demanding he surrender.

In Kabardino-Balkaria, the regional Interior Ministry said an insurgent leader was killed by police gunfire after being cornered in an apartment building.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
