MOSCOW, October 1 (Itar-Tass) — Dagestan’s envoy to the Russian President, Gadzhi Makhachev, denounced on Monday the behaviour of participants in a wedding ceremony who shot into the air as a wedding motorcade drove through central Moscow on Sunday.
He told Itar-Tass that the incident had demonstrated “disrespect for the people”. “Any Caucasian denounces it, one must stick to the rules of conduct,” he told Tass. The envoy also apologized to those who had been frightened by the behaviour of young people. “These guys must be punished, as nothing goes unpunished,” he stressed.
At the same time, he appealed to media “not to whip up tensions”.
Some 15 people were detained and convoyed to a police station on Sunday after an incident in which a wedding motorcade shot into the air in the centre of Moscow. Administrative protocols were drawn up.
Traffic police blocked eight wedding cars heading for the wedding party in the centre of Moscow, at the intersection of the Mokhovaya and Tverskaya Streets, just a stone’s throw from the Kremlin, for shooting into the air. “Several persons (born in North Caucasian republics) were detained,” Moscow police department’s spokesman said on Sunday. No one was hurt.
