Counter-Terrorism Regime Declared in At Least 4 Dagestan Districts

Security officials have launched a counter-terrorism operation in at least four districts and two cities of Russia's restive North Caucasus republic of Dagestan, a news report said, following recent clashes between militants and government troops.

The counter-terror regime was put in place Monday morning in the cities of Kizilyurt, Khasavyurt and the Novolaksk, Kazbekovsky, Kizilyurt and Khasavyurt districts, Interfax news agency reported, citing a spokesperson for the security operation's headquarters.

The regime followed a similar counter-terror measure introduced Sunday in Dagestan's Buinaksk district, according to RIA Novosti news agency.

… 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.
