Special and counterterrorist operations
At 4:00 a.m. Moscow time of January 11, the counterterrorist operation (CTO) legal regime was introduced in the village of Kvanada of the Tsumada District of Dagestan. Law enforcers blocked a house with a yard, from which unknown attackers opened fire on them. As a result of the shootout, one of the militants was killed.

A group of militants was blocked in a private house. As a result of the talks, mother of one of the militants left the blocked house. The woman tried to persuade her son to surrender, but did not succeed in her efforts. In the course of the shootout, two militants were killed. The special operation was suspended because of nightfall, and it was resumed in the morning of January 16. The law enforcers again offered the man blocked in the house to lay down his arms and surrender; however, he opened fire and was killed. During the storming of the blocked house, one of the law enforcers was wounded and hospitalized. At 10:35 a.m. of January 17, the CTO legal regime was lifted.
