GROZNY, March 29. /TASS/. Two militants were killed during a police operation in the Chechen city of Gudermes, Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov said on his Telegram channel on Wednesday.

According to the report, the whereabouts of the militants became known during investigative procedures.
"I would ask you to refrain from circulating rumors about some members of a militant group who were not killed, or about their sudden attack on law-enforcement officers and other fake news. The criminals have been exposed and destroyed. Gudermes keeps living a peaceful life," the Chechen leader added.
He thanked the republic’s police and security officers for their successful operation against the militants.
