Russia undertakes military action in North-East Caucasus

Joint military and police operations by Russian FSB and defence ministry forces are currently underway in the North Caucasus republics of Dagestan, Chechnya and Ingushetia. Jamestown’s Mairbek Vatchagaev writes that “the current year will be no exception to the general trend of increasing rebel fighter activity in the spring and the summer.” In Chechnya, all law enforcement agencies are on heightened alert and all military units have been placed on standby for an unspecified period of time.
