RIA Novosti

GROZNY, April 18 (RIA Novosti) - The Federal Security Service (FSB) is conducting a special operation to destroy the remainder of Rizvan Chitigov's (killed on March 23, 2005) terrorist group in Chechnya's Shali district, Major General Ilya Shabalkin, spokesman for the regional HQ for the anti-terrorist operation in the North Caucasus, was quoted by RIA Novosti as saying.

During the operation FSB officers prevented the recruitment of several dozen young men by terrorists. They also found an ammunition depot, which would be sufficient to equip up to ten terrorists in one of the district apartment buildings.

So far the officers have identified most recruits and held instructive work. Considering that the recruits did not have time to take part in terrorist activity, a decision was taken not to initiate criminal proceedings against them," the interlocutor reported.
