Residents of Chechnya's Borozdinovskaya village return home

MAKHACHKALA/ GROZNY, June 30 (RIA Novosti) - Residents of Chechnya's Borozdinovskaya village returned home from a refugee camp in Daghestan Thursday.

Head of Borozdinovskaya's administration Natalya Zinkovskaya said that there were 744 residents of Borozdinovskskaya in the Nadezhda (Hope) refugee camp.

The authorities set up a command post to register those coming back. They are also helping villagers unload their things and settle in.

Zinkovskaya also said humanitarian organizations have arrived in the village to provide the residents with food.

A mobile passport control team is working on ID problems.

Zinkovskaya said that 50 task force officers from Chechnya's Interior Ministry are being temporarily stationed in the village to ensure security.

Two tents, one from the Red Cross, are all that remain of the Nadezhda camp in the Daghestani region of Kizlyar. Authorities there assigned several trucks to transport the former refugees' possessions.

Residents of Borozdinovskaya abandoned their homes and settled in the refugee camp in Daghestan after 11 of their neighbors disappeared from the village during a special police operation June 4.

The villagers had refused to return home, where they said there was no guarantee of their security.
