MOSCOW, October 11. /TASS/. A total of 95 militants, including 15 leaders of paramilitary groups, have been neutralized in Russia’s North Caucasus in 2016, Alexander Bortnikov, the chairman of the National Anti-terrorist Committee (NAC) and director of the Federal Security Service (FSB), said on Tuesday.
He said that efforts are continued to normalize the situation in the region.
"Over the past period, one terrorist attack has been prevented in the North Caucasus. As many as 49 militants and their 328 accessories have been detained, a total of 95 militants, including 15 leaders of paramilitary groups, with odious leaders of illegal armed groups in Kabardino-Balkaria and Dagestan among them, have been neutralized.
