Four Russian servicemen have been killed and seven sustained injuries as their armored infantry vehicle was blown up by a disguised explosive device in Chechnya, Russia's Interior Ministry reported.

According to Russia’s Investigative Committee, six soldiers suffered wounds and were hospitalized.

The explosion in the Chechen Republic’s Martynovsky region went off as sapper troops were taking part in engineer reconnaissance operations.

The local investigative committee has launched a criminal case. Circumstances surrounding the explosion remain unknown.

Sporadic terror attacks and anti-terror operations in Russia's North Caucasus still continue years after Russia announced the end of its decade-long counter-terrorism operation against militants in Chechnya in 2009.

In recent years, the epicenter of violence has shifted from Chechnya to Russia's other North Caucasian republics of Ingushetia, Dagestan, and Kabardino-Balkaria.

More US sponsored terrorism at work ? Probably. The only real question is , are they using those goats in Saudi Arabia to do it or is john Kerry personally responsible

Don't be an idiot. The reality of the situation is, if Russia pulls out, Chechnya becomes an islamic extremist state, just like Taliban Afghanistan. Jihadists are as anti-west as they are anti-Russian.[/quote ]

He cant help it, that's the whole tragedy of idiocy

This policy of destablising russia is being run from washington & the brussels lap dogs. The people of the west know whats going on but are unable to stop it. If you want to put an end to this nuke washington & brussells & cut the head off the beast.
