Sochi city administration unaware of Armenian - Dagestani clashes?

PanARMENIAN.Net - Asked by a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter to comment on the recent clashes between representatives of Armenian community and Dagestani workers in Sochi’s Adler region, the city administration’s press service said it lacks information on the issue.

Clashes between Armenians and Dagestanis occurred in Sochi’s Adler region, near Chereshnya village on Saturday, May 26. The villagers told Komsomolskaya Pravda paper that Dagestani workers constantly offended local Armenian girls with indecent jokes and proposals.

Armenian men, according to them, “tolerated” this until Dagestanis started “harassing the girls”. Armenians assembled a team to revenge the offenders.

Those having come to the showdown were armed with traumatic weapons and stun guns, the paper says. The workers further informed the police of the planned attack against them, who dispersed the crowd with tear gas, thus putting an end to the mass brawl.

About 300 people were arrested as a result, according to Sochi’s police department.
