NALCHIK, June 16 (Itar-Tass) —— People in Kabardino-Balkaria mourn for 36-year-old police officer Aslan Sokhov who died of wounds on Saturday. He was fatally wounded in fighting with gunmen on June 10.
Doctors from the Russian Interior Ministry's central hospital together with Kabardino-Balkarian specialists all the time fought for his life. Though he was in critical condition, they hoped to return him to life, a source at the press service of the republic's Interior Ministry told Itar-Tass.
Kabardino-Balkaria's Interior Minister Maj. Gen. Sergei Vasilyev visited the wounded officer on Friday. He asked to take Sokhov to Moscow, but the policeman was in so heavy condition that it was impossible.
All who knew Sokhov remember him as a courageous and competent officer who never feared difficulties and assumed responsibility in combat situations, the press service noted.
Sokhov was wounded when he participated in a special operation against gunmen in the city of Baksan on June 10. Three gunmen were killed in the operation. Four policemen were wounded.
