Mop-up in refugee camp Rassvyet

Ruslan Isayev, North Caucasus – A mopping-up operation was carried out on Wednesday in the Chechen refugee camp Rassvyet, located in the village of Ordzhonikidzevskaya in the Sunzhensky district of Ingushetia.

According to camp residents, security forces arrested two refugees: a resident from Urus-Martan and another from the village of Sernovodsk. In addition, at least three refugees who tried to stop the chaos created by the soldiers and the police were beaten up, including a one-legged disabled man. His sister was also beaten when she pleaded for her brother.

Claiming to search for weapons and ammunition, soldiers forced local residents to demolish the adobe wall of an outhouse and remove everything from inside. Nothing was found, however.

When the soldiers left the camp, they promised to return in the evening. Instead, a representative of the Ingush Migration Service arrived. He ordered the camp's electricity supply to be cut off and notified the refugees that the gas was also to be disconnected.
