The number of abductions in Chechnya has decreased since the beginning of this year two times as compared to this period last year
The number of abductions in Chechnya has decreased since the beginning of this year two times as compared to this period last year, Chechen President Alu Alkhanov said at a news conference in Moscow. “Over the nine months of this year, 65 such crimes have been registered. Over the nine months of the past year, there have been two times as much of such crimes,” he said. However, there has been an upsurge of kidnaps in Chechnya in October. “This topic will be main for discussion at a forthcoming meeting with the chief of the regional operational staff (for control of the counter-terrorist operation in the North Caucasus), Colonel General Arkady Yedelev, and chiefs of other law enforcement agencies of both republican and federal levels,” Alkhanov said. “I do not say that the situation in the republic is ideal – it is not simple. I understand that a way out of this heavy long crisis can not happen at one stroke. But the situation can be changed,” he said. It is crucial that workers of security agencies act efficiently, he added. Alkhanov was asked about masked people involved in abductions of civilians in Chechnya. “Even though rigid orders were given about that to chiefs of the interior ministry, masked people continue to act in the republic,” he admitted. Alkhanov said the number of terrorist acts had decreased in Chechnya this year. Over the nine months, 70 terrorist acts have been registered, as against 130 in 2004, but only 28 have been concretely perpetrated, he said. The number of grave crimes is also decreasing.
