3 Gunmen Killed in Counter-Terrorism Operation in Nalchik

A counter-terrorism operation in the southern city of Nalchik has ended in the deaths of three gunmen at the hands of special forces troops.

At 5:35 a.m., police received a tip-off from an unidentified man who said he had seen three armed men on the premises of the horticultural society in Nalchik, which is about 1,500 kilometers south of Moscow.

Special police teams were immediately dispatched to the area and at 5:45 a.m. a firefight broke out, Interfax reported.

Local authorities introduced safety measures in the three streets affected by the operation.

The operation has since been brought to a conclusion, the National Anti-Terrorism Committee said.

… 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.
