Russia: Security Forces Violently Disperse Protest In Ingushetia

Violence in Ingushetia does not seem to abate despite increasing presence of Russian security services, police and military. The Ingush hate their president Murad Zyazikov, that was appointed by Putin. Zyazikov does not really control the situation, several attempts have been made on his life, his relatives were kidnapped and allegedly released for ransom. Still Moscow does not want to follow vox popoli. This leads to deep resentment among Ingush and increasing scale of mass protests.

Police have clashed with hundreds of protesters rallying against corruption and human rights abuses in Russia’s southern Republic of Ingushetia.

One demonstrator was reported wounded in the violence, while others were detained, including journalists and human rights activists.
