A Chechen citizen, suspected of involvement in the illegal armed formations, was detained on Sunday in Dagestan on the Russo-Azerbaijani border. The examination showed that the suspect had traces of gunshot wounds on his body, which aroused suspicions of the border-guards. The arrested Chechen was handed over to the Dagestani law-enforcers for further inspection.
According to the local border guards, since the beginning of the current year they have arrested about 30 Chechen terrorists. Some 16,000 units of ammunition, 170-odd kilos of explosives and some 3 kilos of drugs were confiscated from detained persons.
Russian President Vladimir Putin, in his speech dedicated to the Day of the Russian Navy, recalled the threats that Russia is currently facing from a number of countries.
