The transfer of land can enhance the protest mood among Kumyks.
The land question in Dagestan often coses inter-ethnic tensions. Therefore, any decision of the authorities of the region in land relations meets the public wary. The Dagestan authorities have decided to expand the boundaries of Makhachkala by the Karabudakhkent land area. It is no secret, that Makhachkala is congested. It causes such problems as inefficient public transport system, rain flooding and pollution of water supply. It is obvious that the city's infrastructure is worn out and not intended for so many people.
Meanwhile, on December 6 the head of Makhachkala, Musa Musayev held weekly hardware meeting where he announced to colleagues the decision of the head of the republic Ramzan Abdulatipov: to pass 300 hectares of Karabudakhkent district lands into the ownership of a municipality with intracity division "Makhachkala". In this regard, the mayor instructed the chief architect to prepare the amendments to the general plan of the city and hand over the relevant documents to the Makhachkala City Assembly deputies to change the boundaries of the municipality.
