MOSCOW, December 4. /TASS/. Six terrorists were killed in a special operation in Checnya's capital Grozny, Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov said at his Instagram page.
“Six terrorists are already killed at the House of the Press! No bandit will manage to escape! I am directly supervising the special operation. Our main task is to prevent casualties among civilians. I ask you not to go out in the street in the special operation area,” he said.
Medical sources told TASS that according to preliminary reports up to six people were killed and several more wounded in an attack of gunmen in Grozny.
Earlier, Russia’s National Anti-Terrorism Committee’s (NAC) confirmed that armed people had seized the House of the Press in Chechnya’s capital Grozny after an attack on a checking point of the traffic police and then an anti-terrorist operation began in the city’s center.
“We received operative information on a car with suspicious people,” Kadyrov posted on his Instagram page. “A report was sent to all the law enforcement agencies. Traffic police made an attempt to stop the car but fire was opened out of it, killing three policemen. While escaping, supposedly five or six armed bandits hid out in the House of the Press.”
“I’d like to ask the dwellers to take precaution measures — stay inside and far from the windows,” the Chechen leader said. “The operation will be over by dawn. All the talks that gunmen are bossing in Grozny are absolutely false. Cars are passing by in the city’s streets as usual, hampering law enforcers’ operation, though. The incident was an attempt to make it look like there is a certain force but failed.”
Kadyrov does not rule out that “these people could have come from another region” since “no illegal armed groups capable to do it have remained in Chechnya.”.
