While speaking to a news conference in Moscow Monday, he said he could not give an unbiased description of the situation in the village.
"I think the relevant services will provide information on this count later," Alkhanov said.
Village residents continue abandoning their homes and moving to neighboring Daghestan.
Locals reported 11 people missing after a passport checking operation there on June 4. Fearing for their lives, the residents, who are mainly Avars, an ethnic group widely represented in Daghestan, started leaving their homes and settling in a tent camp they called Nadezhda, or Hope.
They refused to return to Chechnya until they received word on the status of the missing residents. The refugees then returned to Borozdinovskaya after multiple meetings with representatives of the Chechen and Daghestani authorities, who rendered them material assistance. However, they received no information on their neighbors' fate.
In mid-June, Borozdinovskaya's residents left their homes again for the camp in Daghestan. They turned to Daghestan's authorities for permission to build a new village, but were denied.
