According to understated Russian figures, more than 30 police puppets were killed and over 120 others wounded when two powerful blasts hit an enemy police post "Alaska 30" on the outskirts of Shamilkala, the Russian-occupied capital of CE Province of Dagestan, on late Thursday evening, 4 days before the coronation of Putin. The Russians are treating the blasts Thursday night as an attack by the Mujahideen of the Caucasus Emirate.
The first explosion occurred at 10:25 pm (1825 GMT) when a martyrdom-seeking Mujahid of the Caucasus Emirate slammed his explosive-laden Mitsubishi vehicle at the puppet security post, Russian news agencies reported.
A second bomb exploded 20 minutes later, at 10:45 pm (1845 GMT), in a parked "Gazelle" van when police reinforcements arrived to the scene, causing additional enemy casualties.
The first blast sparked a huge fire. The enemy security post burned out and was completely destroyed. Several dozens police vehicles as well as a high-pressure gas pipeline were also destroyed. The two powerful blasts, with total power of over 150 kilograms in TNT equivalent, were heard in all the districts of Shamilkala.
The real enemy casualties are much higher than officially reported because the Russians couldn't find all the fragments of the bodies of their puppets during the night time. A puppet is reported missing. The Russians suspect his involvement in the attack.
"Fragments of human bodies are scattered at the post", a Russian news agency quoted a puppet police official as saying.
At least 15 wounded puppets are in extremely critical condition and are expected to die within the next few hours, the Russians say.
The Caucasus Emirate was officially proclaimed in 2007 as an Islamic state in the Russian-occupied North Caucasus and includes Sochi, where Russia intends to host its "winter olympics" in 2014, Reuters reports.
