A row burst out in the Russian city of Novosibirsk. Local policemen, who completed their mission and Chechnya and returned home, filed an action against their own leadership. The employees of law-enforcement agencies, who took part in military operations in the Northern Caucasus, state that have not got enough fees. Local judicial bodies have already received more than 60 writs from them. The policemen’s complaint is simple. Before their trip a certain sum of money was promised to them. However as they returned, they received 20,000 rubles less (about $700) than they expected. It is a considerable sum for them. Moreover the policemen are outraged at the fact that they were divided in two groups: those who took part in military operations directly, and those who just helped to “re-establish law and order” after the active phase of counter-terrorist was over. Thus the soldiers have to prove that they have been to the war.
