According to a source in the law enforcement bodies, the killed man was identified as Suleiman Zainulabidov, the leader of the "Aukh" grouping of militants, who had sworn to the terrorist organization "Islamic State". Special and counterterrorist operations On June 3, law enforcers blocked the village of Kharachi in the Untsukul District of Dagestan.
