Multiple unconfirmed reports have suggested that Russia is sending between 20,000 and 25,000 federal troops to its southern region of Dagestan.

Official sources are confirming a smaller movement of troops.

The move is officially a response to renewed terrorist threats in the troubled region, which has a brutal history of attacks from a strong separatist Islamic movement — A recent “black widow” suicide attack caught international attention, for example.
