PUGACHYOV, Russia -- About 600 residents of the town of Pugachyov in Saratov Oblast of Russia's Volga region have taken part in a protest and demanded that people native to the North Caucasus be forced out of the region.
The July 8 protest was prompted by a deadly scuffle in a cafe in which a Chechen teenager stabbed and killed a former paratrooper, Ruslan Marzhanov.
The situation in the town has been tense since the incident occurred on July 6.
The deputy governor of Saratov Oblast, Denis Fadeyev, traveled to Pugachyov and regional authorities have sent additional police forces.
Law enforcement officials have set up checkpoints on all roads leading to the town.
Protesters said on July 8 that they plan to block one of the main regional highways if North Caucasus natives remain in the town.
Those peaceful Chechens again.........
“demanded that people native to the North Caucasus be forced out of the region.”
Demanded natives to leave... hum.
In Russian news they say Chechens did something to this guy’s girlfriend, he tried to protect her and they jumped on him in pack, one has cut his throat with a scalpel.
It made a huge protest, people has blocked interstate highway, took police chief, mayor hostages demanding expulsion of all muslims.
How hard is it to learn Russian?
Sounds like intelligent people...............
Much more news here with pictures:
For being and itty-bitty, teeny-weeny country (1.2 million) Chechnya sure causes a helluva lot of problems in this world.
Pretty easy if you want to understand and make understood. Pretty much impossible if you want to spell or write as native.
Caucasus natives...in Central Russia...where they are *not* native. Migrants. Author could've made that point clearer, I guess.
