[ 1992 ]

The East Prigorodny Conflict was an inter-ethnic conflict in the eastern part of the Prigorodny district in the Republic of North Ossetia–Alania, which started in 1989 and developed, in 1992, into a brief ethnic war between local Ingush and Ossetian paramilitary forces.

"Human Rights Watch/Helsinki" takes no position on the ultimate status of the Prigorodnyi region. Human Rights Watch/Helsinki report investigates human rights violations committed by all parties to the conflict from 1992 to 1996, its major emphasis is on the events between October 31, 1992 and November 31, 1992, on the process of return for the displaced, and on attempts to bring to justice those who committed criminal acts connected with the conflict. The report also examines the Russian government's weak response to events leading to the armed conflict and its utter failure to prevent the destruction of thousands of homes and dwellings.
