Makhachkala, October 12, 2016. The militants’ leader Abubakar Udziev named as «Abu Bakr» has been destroyed today, October 12, during a large-scale anti-terrorist operation conducted by the joint actions of the FSB special forces and the Russian Guards internal security corps in the village of Gubden, Dagestan.
The militants’ leader has been on the federal wanted list for several years. Security forces tried to bring Abu Bakr to justice for the many murders and crimes of terrorist orientation. Three years ago Udziev was involved in undermining the column with the Defense Ministry servicemen near the village of Gubden. He later tarnished himself as a murderer of the head of Karamahi village administration in September 2015. In August 2016, Udziev killed a villager of Gubden.
In the shootout site several grenades, automatic weapons and a large quantity of ammunition were found.
Recall, earlier in the anti-terrorist operation in Gubden area, three members of the bandit underground who undertook armed resistance to FSB and Russian Guards officers were destroyed.
No casualties and losses among the law enforcers and civilians are reported.
