MAKHACHKALA, Oct 30 During the riots at Makhachkala airport, law enforcement officers did not use physical force until recently, “hoping to reason with the crowd,” said the head of Dagestan, Sergei Melikov.

“Many people today are trying to evaluate the security forces, but I would say that the units of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the National Guard did not use physical force until recently, hoping to reason with this crowd, which was not controlled by anyone, with the exception of those operators who controlled this crowd without being in it , were controlled remotely using social networks,” he said at the press approach.

As the head of the region noted, the security forces “tried to reach those gathered and explain the illegality of their actions.” According to him, such actions have led to the fact that “the number of injured or injured today is minimal.”

On Sunday in Makhachkala, local residents broke into the airport runway after the arrival of a flight from Tel Aviv. It was reported that they were looking for arriving Israeli citizens, and also checking cars leaving the territory.

According to the Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs for the North Caucasus Federal District (NCFD), nine police officers were injured as a result of the unrest. The regional Ministry of Health reported that more than 20 people were injured.

The identities of more than 150 active participants in the events have already been established, and a criminal case has been opened for mass riots. Melikov added that “there will be no forgiveness for anyone.”

"Criminal cases have been opened on a number of facts that became a precedent for yesterday’s events, and all those responsible for the situation created yesterday will bear deserved responsibility. There will be no forgiveness for anyone,” the head of the region noted.

The press service of the head of Dagestan reported that Melikov inspected the airport building today. As noted, there is almost no damage in the domestic flights terminal, and “everything has been preserved for the stable operation of the complex.” Equipment in the international terminal was slightly damaged.

Initially, the air harbor was planned to be closed until November 6, but today Rosaviation has reduced this period to October 31.
