MOSCOW, July 3 (RIA Novosti)
A militant leader was killed on Tuesday in Russia’s North Caucasus republic of Kabardino-Balkaria, the Interior Ministry said.
The militant, Azparukh Shamayev, has long been on a federal wanted list for a series of murders.
On November 14, 2011, he personally killed two precinct police officers in the republic’s capital, Nalchik, the ministry said.
Police tried to stop Shamayev and another, unidentified man on Tuesday morning for a document check. They opened fire on police. Shamayev was killed by return fire while the other man escaped.

News that Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin would resign in order to run for the mayoral election in September came as quite a shock. Sobyanin’s political potential is fairly dubious, not to mention his approval ratings. He has not finished many of the projects he initiated and the electoral effect from these projects is expected to come a bit later than September 2013. Sobyanin’s opponents were not entirely unprepared for this blitzkrieg.
