NALCHIK, November 6 (Itar-Tass) —— The regime of counter-terrorism operation was lifted in Russia’s North Caucasian republic on Kabardino-Balkaria starting from 18:00 Moscow time on Saturday, a spokesman for the operational headquarters told Itar-Tass.
The counter-terrorism regime was imposed in the republic’s Elbrus and Baksan districts on February 20, 2011 after the murder of three tourists from Moscow.
The counter-terrorism regime was lifted after the criminal situation stabilized, the spokesman said. “A number of bandit masterminds, including those wanted for being involved in grave crimes and terrorism, have been neutralized in police operations.”
Apart from that, police found 16 hiding places with weapons and munitions, eight specially equipped bases and stations, seized more than 60 pieces of firearms, including handguns, submachine guns, heavy machine guns, rifles, grenade launchers and more than 6,000 munitions, hand grenades, about 70 home-made explosive devices, and 20 kilograms of explosives. Police also exposed and exterminated three laboratories for making explosive devices. Two of them were housed in apartments in multi-storey residential houses.
The operational headquarters thanked local residents for their assistance to police.
