MOSCOW, March 24. /TASS/. Russia’s National Guard forces, who repelled an attack of militants on a military unit in Chechnya, in the North Caucasus, have prevented numerous deaths among the civilians, Commander-in-Chief of the internal security corps Viktor Zolotov said.
"The vile attack of terrorists-suicide bombers on the 140th artillery regiment and the 46th separate brigade claimed lives of six our fellow soldiers, who fulfilled their military duty with honor and prevented numerous deaths among the civilians," Zolotov stressed.
A group of militants tried to break into a military compound of the National Guard, also known as Rosgvardiya, in the small hours of Friday when there was heavy fog. "During the attempt of reaching the garrison’s premises, the armed gang was spotted by the forces patrolling the area who clashed with them. Six attackers were killed," Rosgvardiya said. "Due to the decisive steps of the personnel, the gang did not penetrate the garrison," it said.
Six National Guard soldiers were killed and three others were wounded during the attack.
