Police prevent major terrorist attack in Russia's North Caucasus (Update 1)
Police officials in Russia's North Caucasus republic of Ingushetia prevented a large-scale terrorist attack on Thursday by killing a militant leader, the press service of the local police force said.
"On August 12 the law enforcement bodies received information that a militant group was preparing a large-scale terrorist attack, involving a car," the source said, adding that the information had pointed at Kharun Pliyev as the organizer of the attack.
Police stopped a Mercedes car carrying Kharun Pliyev and another unidentified militant earlier on Thursday near the village of Pliyevo in the Nazran district of Ingushetia.
The two militants resisted attempts at their arrest and were badly wounded in the ensuing shoot out, but managed to flee the scene. Pliyev's body was later found in Pliyevo. A search for the other militant is still underway.
Bomb experts found a home-made explosive device equivalent of 12 kg of TNT and a 7.62 millimeter Kalashnikov rifle in the car. A police source earlier said that guns, ammunition and a home-made grenade were found on the militant's dead body.
"There were no casualties among the police officers or local residents," the official said.
Pliyev was suspected of involvement in a series of attacks on police officers and military personnel in July.
Russia's mainly Muslim North Caucasus republics, especially Chechnya, Dagestan and Ingushetia, have seen an upsurge of militant violence lately, with frequent attacks on police and officials.
As Russia’s military announce the deployment of S-300s in the former Georgia’s republic, analysts say these air defense systems were deployed there two years ago.
Moscow has deployed an S-300 surface-to-air missile system in Abkhazia, Air Force Commander Col. Gen. Aleksandr Zelin said on August 11. He explained that the system has been deployed to ensure security of the republic and Russian military base located in it.
The system should defend facilities in Abkhazia, while the air defense means the Ground Forces are responsible for protecting facilities in South Ossetia, he explained.
Abkhaz Prime Minister Sergey Shamba said on August 11 that the deployment of the S-300s fully conform to bilateral agreements between Moscow and Sukhum. “It is a defense system,” he told Interfax. “It is meant to defend the Russian military base and the territory of Abkhazia and is not aimed against any third country,” he said.
The Georgian Foreign Ministry has protested the move. It poses a threat “not only to the Black Sea region, but to security in Europe in general,” the ministry said in a statement.
“Russia has recognized for the first time that its air defense systems have been delivered to Abkhazia and enemies had better not fly there,” Kommersant daily wrote. According to the paper, “Moscow began to deploy elements of this system in Abkhazia in autumn 2008, after the end of the war in the Caucasus.”
The S-300 deployed in the republic will not only defend it from Georgia’s potential threat, but will also “cover Olympic facilities in Sochi,” the paper noted, citing military analysts.
At the same time, it is still unclear how many S-300 batteries have been deployed in Abkhazia, the paper said. The Defense Ministry has not added to the information submitted by Zelin.
So far the nearest air defense systems were deployed near Sochi, the paper noted. However, Moscow considered the plans to station S-300 in Abkhazia some years ago. In July 2003, first deputy premier of the Abkhazian government Astamur Tarba said Sukhum had asked Moscow to defend the republic’s airspace from Georgian drones, the daily said.
A source in the Russian Foreign Ministry told Kommersant that this request had been considered. However, Moscow refused to supply the air defense systems due to the republic’s uncertain status at the time – Russia then officially considered Abkhazia as part of Georgia.
“Everything changed after August 2008,” the paper said. After Moscow officially recognized the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, the first elements of the systems began to arrive in Abkhazia in autumn 2008, the paper noted. “In particular, additional radio-location sets were deployed in the south of the republic.”
Abkhazia’s Defense Minister Merab Kishmaria also recognized the fact the "air defense systems had been deployed long before Zelin’s statement,” the paper said. “It was necessary because of the constant threat from Georgia and the fact that Abkhazia and Georgia have not signed the peace agreement,” Kishmaria told the paper.
At the same time, “a civil part” of Abkhazia’s leadership may not have known the details of the military co-operation between Moscow and Sukhum, the paper assumed. At least, the head of the republic’s Foreign Ministry Maksim Gvinjia yesterday “did not hesitate to deny the fact that Russian S-300s were in the republic,” it added.
The move is a preventative measure in case the Georgia’s aviation steps up its activities in the region or starts to increase, the paper said. The S-300s will be able “to control part of the airspace in Georgia,” Igor Korotchenko, editor-in-chief of the National Defense magazine, told the daily. Another task will be covering Olympic facilities in Sochi, he added.
At the same time, Russia does not plan to deploy the air defense systems in South Ossetia, a source in the Defense Ministry told the paper. The air defense group of the Ground Forces is enough to cover the airspace in that republic, he added. However, South Ossetia’s Defense Minister Valery Yakhnovets, appointed last week, made it clear the systems would not be out of place there.
The first reaction of the West to the news of the deployment of the S-300s in Abkhazia was calm, Kommersant said. A source in the NATO headquarters told the paper that “the alliance’s position remains unchanged.
“We do not recognize the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, and so we do not welcome the appearance of Russian defense systems in these regions,” he said. But this move “does not cause alarm either,” he added.
The US State Department has made it clear Washington is not surprised by the move. “I believe it’s our understanding that Russia has had S-300 missiles in Abkhazia for the past two years,” Philip Crowley, the department's assistant secretary, said during a press briefing on August 11.
“We can’t confirm whether they [Russia] have added to those systems or not,” Crowley said. “This by itself is not necessarily a new development. That system has been in place for some time,” he added.
President of the Institute for Strategic Assessments Aleksandr Konovalov believes it is “senseless to cover Abkhazia with such systems from Georgia’s air attacks” because Tbilisi has limited military aircraft.
“I think the S-300 would be useful in this place if a US aircraft-carrier entered the Black Sea and posed a threat,” Konovalov told Gazeta daily, adding that it was “absolutely unrealistic scenario.”
Observers note that Russia’s 2007 contract on supplying S-300s to Iran provokes more concern in the US and Israel. Moscow is still delaying the delivery of the systems although the deal has not been officially cancelled.

Lukashenko blames Russia for Minsk's failure to recognize Abkhazia, S.Ossetia.
MINSK, August 13 (RIA Novosti) - Belarus has not recognized the former Georgian republics of Abkhazia and South Ossetia because Russia refused to help it cope with the consequences of such a step, the Belarusian president said Friday.
The Belarusian Belta news agency said Alexander Lukashenko was asked by journalists to comment on Russian President Dmitry Medvedev's accusation that Lukashenko had failed to deliver on a promise to recognize the countries' independence.
"I told him: it's not a problem for Belarus to recognize South Ossetia and Abkhazia, even today it's not a problem. But I enumerated to him the problems that would arise for Belarus in its relations with the EU, the United States, the CIS etc.," Lukashenko said.
"We laid out these problems - there were about 15 of them," he said.
But, according to Lukashenko, when he asked whether Russia is ready to help Belarus overcome the problems if they arise, "Russia turned out to be incapable or the Russian leadership did not want to level and deal with the consequences that could arise for Belarus."
"If Russia took steps to meet [Belarus] halfway, the situation would probably be different," he said.
Russia recognized South Ossetia and Abkhazia, which both split from Georgia after the collapse of the Soviet Union, two weeks after the end of a five-day war with Georgia in August 2008.
The move was heavily criticized by Western powers. So far, only Venezuela, Nicaragua and the tiny island nation of Nauru have followed suit.

Russia incensed by U. S. report on terrorism in Caucasus Region.
The section of the U. S. Department of State's Country Report on Terrorism 2009 covering Georgia is surprisingly biased, a statement published on the Russian Foreign Ministry's website on Friday said.
"It is enough to say that the report described Georgia as a genuinely model terrorism fighter. At the same time, available information that Tbilisi goes in for double dealing with terrorist groups in the North Caucasus region was ignored," the statement said.
"Russian intelligence services have repeatedly furnished proofs on that score and objective observers have taken note long ago."
The Foreign Ministry was incensed by the report's characterization of the situation on the borders between Russia and the former Georgian republics of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
Moscow recognized the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia two years ago and has since been the guarantor of their security, deploying thousands of troops and border guards to the tiny countries, which Georgia considers part of its sovereign territory.
"The lack of [Georgian] control allowed for unrestricted and unidentified flow of people, goods, and other potentially dangerous items from Russia into Abkhazia and South Ossetia," the U.S. report read.
"If such 'evaluations,' which, by the way, were not supported with facts, contain concealed attempts to accuse Russia of 'exporting terrorism,' then we are faced with the politicizing of the problem [by the United States]," the Russian Foreign Ministry statement said.
"The unwillingness to accept the new geopolitical realities in the Caucasus region has hindered the authors of the report from realizing the absurdity of the formulation of the issue of 'Georgian control' in the borders between Russia and other sovereign states - Abkhazia and South Ossetia," the statement said.
"There is no and there cannot be any such control," it added.
The Foreign Ministry completely disagreed with the word "militarization," used by the State Department to describe the presence of Russian border guards controlling borders between Abkhazia, South Ossetia and Georgia.
"Thanks to our border guards, the situation on the borders between these two states and Georgia has been substantially stabilized and on the whole remained quiet," the statement said.
Russia extends lease on military base in Armenia through 2044.
Russia and Armenia on Friday signed amendments to a 1995 bilateral treaty extending Russia's use of a military base near Armenia's border with Turkey through 2044.
The document was signed by the countries' defense ministers as a result of negotiations between Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan. Medvedev is currently on a state visit to Armenia.
Russian Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov said the term of the 1995 deal on the base in Gyumri, Armenia's second largest city, had been extended from 25 to 49 years.
Asked by reporters about the cost of the lease on the base, he said "there is no question of money."
Some reports have said that the mission of the Russian troops was being expanded, but Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the deployment locations for Russian troops had been agreed for a long time and were not affected by the new document.
Lavrov and Serdyukov both said the only thing that had changed was the length of the lease.
"One thing has changed - the extension to 49 years," the defense minister told RIA Novosti.
Armenian Foreign Minister Eduard Nalbandyan said earlier in the week that Russia would also provide Armenia with arms and modern military equipment.
Russia's 102nd Military Base has been deployed in Gyumri since 1995 and is part of a CIS integrated air defense system. It is under the command of Russia's North Caucasus Military District.
There are around 5,000 personnel at the base, as well as S-300 surface-to-air missile systems and MiG-29 fighters.

ROAR: “Azerbaijan may host Turkey’s base after Russian-Armenian deal”
RT.com 20 August, 2010, 17:29
Baku may have “a symmetrical response” to the extension of the lease of the Russian military base in Armenia as efforts to settle the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict bring no results, analysts warn.
As President Dmitry Medvedev and his Armenian counterpart Serzh Sargsyan discussed mutual projects in Yerevan, observers also asked if stepping up Russian-Armenian military cooperation could calm down tensions in the uneasy region.
Russia and Armenia have “a genuine strategic partnership,” Medvedev said in Yerevan. The extension of the lease of the Russian military base in Armenia to nearly 50 years is seen by many as a sign of such partnership.
This move reflects the strengthening of Russia’s international authority as a guarantor of stability and security in the South Caucasus, former chief of staff of the Soviet armed forces Mikhail Moiseev told Interfax.
The presence of the base in Gyumri is also a deterring and stabilizing factor for those inclined to various reckless military affairs,” he noted. At the same time, Russian troops in Armenia do not pose any threat to Azerbaijan, he stressed.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on August 18 that the function of the military base would not be changed. He also made it clear Russia would not export weapons to unstable regions.
Medvedev’s state visit to Armenia is important because the tension in relations between that country and Azerbaijan “has recently become fairly dangerous,” believes director of the CIS countries Konstantin Zatulin. “It is related to the unsettled Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and numerous belligerent statements in this regard from Azerbaijan,” he told Komsomolskaya Pravda daily.
Russia has ties and mutual interests with both Armenia and Azerbaijan, the analyst said. “Of course, the level of these ties with Armenia is essentially bigger because we are members of one military club,” he said, referring to the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO). Holding a CSTO summit in Armenia, Moscow may warn against a possibility of a military action, he said.
The agreement on the military base also demonstrates that “Russia intends to preserve its military might and possibilities in this uneasy region," Zatulin said.
However, some politicians and analysts asked why Russia and Armenia have signed the agreement on the base at this particular moment. The deal signed in 1995 would expire in 2020, deputy of the Armenian parliament Stepan Safaryan told Regnum news agency. “Why has the extension of the lease been prolonged 10 years before this term?” he wondered.
“It would be wiser to wait for 2020 and decide whether to extend it or not according to the geopolitical situation,” he said. “These 10 years would also offer the answer to the question of the vitality and effectiveness of the CSTO,” he added.
Meanwhile, Azerbaijan and Turkey may have prepared their “symmetrical answer to Yerevan and Moscow,” Nezavisimaya Gazeta daily said. A Turkish military base may be deployed in Azerbaijan as a result of the talks between Baku and Ankara, the paper noted.
“The topic was allegedly discussed during the recent visit of Turkey's President Abdullah Gul to Baku and his meeting with Azerbaijan’s leader Ilkham Aliev," the daily said. According to Azerbaijan’s media, the military base may be deployed in Nakhichevan autonomous republic, an exclave between Armenia and Turkey.
The relations between Turkey and Azerbaijan are so close that the question arises why Ankara has not yet deployed its military base in the friendly country, the paper asked. Baku may have expected Russia’s more effective role in settling the conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia over Nagorno-Karabakh, the daily explained.
Hoping that Russia could “influence its strategic ally – Yerevan – and help to promote the restoration of Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity,” Baku "did not venture on strengthening a pro-Turkey vector or another one,” the daily stressed.
However, the authorities in Baku think that “expectations were overestimated” as the situation over Nagorno-Karabakh remains unchanged, the daily said.
“Baku, in fact, has determined the limitation of its expectations after which it will probably try to change the situation in its favor by other actions,” the daily said. “This limit is President Medvedev’s visit to Baku scheduled for September.”
The Russian president has extended Russia’s military agreement with Yerevan for 49 years, and “the renewed military base together with Armenia’s armed forces will guarantee Armenia’s security,” the paper noted.
“Analysts in Azerbaijan believe that, with the new agreement, Moscow has fixed its geopolitical presence in the South Caucasus and simultaneously warned Baku against a military solution to the conflict,” the daily said.
At the same time, Turkey’s president made it clear that the renewed agreement between Ankara and Baku was not a response to Russian-Armenian military cooperation. “Russia and Turkey are friendly countries and we are not competing with each other,” the paper quoted him as saying.

South Ossetia celebrates 2 years of independence.
RT.com 26 August, 2010, 17:51
South Ossetia marked its independence day on Thursday, gratefully acknowledging Russia’s role in the attainment of political sovereignty.
Speaking at a special assembly gathered to commemorate the day when Dmitry Medvedev signed a decree recognizing the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, Ossetian president Eduard Kokoity thanked Russia for its decision.
“South Ossetia will always remember to whom it owes its rescue and the recognition of its right for freedom and independence,” Kokoity said.
“However hard Tbilisi and some other capitals may be wishing for it, Russia is not changing its decision to recognize South Ossetia. This has recently been confirmed by the Russian president, Dmitry Medvedev,” he added.
Kokoity reminded the gathering that the road to freedom had been long and winding, and stressed the ethnic discrimination that the Ossetians had suffered from Georgia while Ossetia was a part of Georgia.
The creation of an independent South Ossetian state, he said, had been dictated by the “necessity to defend the right of our people to freedom, human dignity and life, [which were] constantly threatened by Georgia.”
Russia recognized South Ossetia and Abkhazia two years ago, on 26 August, 2008, after a brief war with Georgia, which started when Georgian troops entered South Ossetia in a bid to bring it back under Tiblisi’s control. Russia moved in its troops after Georgia bombed South Ossetia’s capital, Tskhinval, and in five days the war was over. Georgia subsequently broke all diplomatic ties with Russia.
Apart from Russia, the independence of South Ossetia has so far been recognized by Nicaragua, Venezuela and Nauru.
The republic is celebrating the day with festivities in all of its regions and a huge music concert in Tskhinval.
Meanwhile, Abkhazia is also marking its independence, celebrating with a concert and fireworks in the capital, Sukhum.
Kadyrov offers $326,000 for info about attackers on his home village.
Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov said he was ready to pay ten million rubles ($326,000) for true information about the location of militants who attacked his home village in late August.
Militant leaders Aslambek Vadalov and Zaurbek Avdorkhanov are suspected of organizing an attack on Chechnya's village of Tsentoroi, the first in six years. A total of 12 militants and five police officers were killed in the clashes, while 17 police and seven civilians were injured.
"I officially state that I will pay ten million rubles for true information about each of those militant leaders," Kadyrov said.
He called on citizens to report to police stations, saying that fighting extremism was "the duty of every Muslim."
Russia's North Caucasus republics, in particular Chechnya, Dagestan and Ingushetia, have seen frequent attacks on police and officials despite the end of a decade-long special regime for counterterrorism operations in Chechnya last year.
Attack in Tajikistan Highlights Fears of Militancy.
By THE NEW YORK TIMES September 3, 2010
MOSCOW — A car rigged with explosives rammed into a police building in northern Tajikistan on Friday, killing at least one person and wounding 25 others in an apparent suicide attack, Tajik police officials said.
Russian news agencies, citing unidentified Tajik government officials, reported that several police officers were missing and feared dead. Tajikistan’s chief of police, Takhir Normatov, told Reuters that two police officers had been killed.
The attack occurred at the regional police headquarters of the organized crime department around 8 a.m. local time in the city of Khujand, a police statement said. The attackers were possibly members of an Islamist group, police officials added.
The government has accused Islamic militants of involvement in organized crime.
The blast came less than two weeks after at least 25 prisoners suspected of having ties to Islamist extremists escaped from a detention center in Tajikistan’s capital, Dushanbe, killing five prison guards in the process.
At least three servicemen were killed and 32 injured in a suicide bombing attack on a temporary camp near a shooting range in the Russian Republic of Dagestan, according to RIA Novosti.
The attacker, driving a Lada car, attempted to break through guards into the entrance of the facility. Guards fired several warning shots, and then shot to kill. The car lost control and crashed into a military truck that was barricading direct access into the camp and exploded.
“[On September 5], at approximately 00:30, a suicide bomber broke through security to the 136th Motorized Rifle Battalion with a car and exploded,” a spokesperson for the Defense Ministry was quoted as saying by Itar-Tass.
A second explosion occurred when police approached the scene of the first attack. However, the time delay on the bomb failed while police were driving past and no one was hurt.
All injured servicemen have been brought to the branch of the military hospital in Buinaksk. Most of them were wounded by the shrapnel bomb was stuffed with. Five of them are in serious condition. Intensive care wards are ready at Rostov-on-Don’s military hospital to receive those wounded the worst if necessary.
The estimated power of the bomb was equal to 50-to-100 kilograms of TNT, RIA Novosti reports.
Remains of the suicide attacker, as well as parts of the car engine and the license plate, were found on the scene, Interfax reports.
“The identity of the attacker can be established by the remains, and the process is underway,” one of the investigators was quoted as saying.
The second bomb did not fully explode, the spokesperson added.
“It was wired with screws, nuts and other destructive metal elements,” he said. “Due to a lucky accident, it was not fully activated, and it saved the policemen.”
A special Defense Ministry commission has arrived to Dagestan from Moscow headed by Commander in Chief of the North Caucasus Military District Aleksandr Galkin.
Defense Minister Anatoly Serdukov has ordered that security be stepped up at all military facilities there, following the twin attack in the Republic of Dagestan.
It is the second blast in the region in the last 24 hours.
The new attacks come just hours after a murder attempt on a high-ranking official in the republic's capital of Makhachkala.
A device hidden in the minister's car exploded, killing the driver and injuring three passengers as they drove through the city.

Train blown up in southern Russia.
RT.com 07 September, 2010, 12:46
A cargo train has been derailed by an explosion in the Russian republic of Dagestan. No casualties have yet been reported.
“An unidentified explosive device went off at 11.30am on Tuesday. According to preliminary information, several cars of the train have been derailed,” Itar-Tass news agency was told by the republic’s law enforcement body.
The train was allegedly traveling from the city of Astrakhan in southern Russia to the city of Kizlyar.

Russian Market Bomb Kills 11.
Novinite.com World | September 9, 2010, Thursday
At least 11 people have been killed and more than 60 wounded in an apparent car bomb attack on a market in Southern Russia, officials say.
Bodies lay strewn about the market in Vladikavkaz, buildings were damaged and cars destroyed, witnesses said, as cited by BBC.
A plane has been despatched from Moscow with medics and equipment on board.
Vladikavkaz is the capital of the North Ossetia republic, in the North Caucasus, which has been beset by Islamist and separatist violence.
It also borders South Ossetia, a tense breakaway region of Georgia where Russia and Georgia went to war two years ago.
The explosion happened on a lane near Vladikavkaz's market around midday, said Oleg Rudenkov of the North Ossetian emergencies ministry.
The area was busy at the time, because as well as the market there was an employment office nearby.
The BBC's Richard Galpin in Moscow says this is the latest in a spate of very serious attacks in the North Caucasus in recent weeks.
Experts believe rival militant groups may be vying for supremacy in the region, he says.
