Chechen office of United Russia party comes under fire

The office of the regional division of the United Russia party in Chechnya has been fired at, a spokesman for the Chechen administration's press service reported.

The incident took place last night in Gudermes, he said. The office was attacked from guns and grenade launchers. No casualties were reported.

Chairman of the party's executive committee in Chechnya Ruslan Yamadayev believes that the attack was caused by the party's intention to nominate Akhmad Kadyrov as its candidate for Chechen president. At present Kadyrov is the republic's acting head.
