NALCHIK, August 18. /TASS/. The special operation conducted by the Federal Security Service in St. Petersburg on Wednesday has resulted in curbing the activity of the Imarat Kavkaz international terrorist organization in the Kabardino-Balkar republic, a law enforcement source in the North Caucasus republic said.
"As a result of the successfully conducted special operation the activity of the Imarat Kavkaz international terrorist organization on the territory of Kabardino-Balkaria has been fully curbed," the source said.
One of the four militants killed in the operation was Zalim Shebhuzov. The emissaries of international terrorist organizations wanted him to lead the activity of the North Caucasus armed groups, the source said. "He was tasked by them to recruit young people to the illegal armed groups and carried out an active propaganda activity, in particular in the Internet, calling for armed struggle with the state authorities."
Earlier reports said four militants of the Imarat Kavkaz terrorist group were killed in the operation in an apartment block in Russia’s second largest city on Wednesday. The killed militants were behind a number of serious crimes in the Kabardino-Balkar republic.
