Militants in Chechnya are attacking locals who have received compensation for destroyed houses, the apparatus of the Chechen administration head told RIA Novosti on Tuesday.
A representative of the administration said that "in the village of Alkhan-Kala of the Grozny district alone two such crimes were registered last week." Earlier, criminals of a band led by a certain Galayev killed a man who had refused to give them the 60,000 roubles (approximately $2,000) he got as compensation. For the same reasons bandits kidnapped a girl in Alkhan-Kala on April 22nd, the administration representative added.
He stressed that "the people are concerned about the increasingly frequent criminal attacks and intend to appeal to the authorities with a request to ensure their security."

More than 5.8 million people voted for Nicholas Maduro at the presidential election in Venezuela. This is more than a quarter of registered voters. Why did those people vote for the man, who, as Western media write, took Venezuela to the brink of collapse?
It has long been understood that the West has been trying to subject Russian borders to total control. We have not seen such activity even during the Cold War
