Capital of Chechnya is safest city in Russia


A- A A+
Grozny tops the rating of safest Russian cities. The poll respondents rated how much they agree with the statement "I live in a safe area and do not afraid to go home at night," according to a 10-point scale. The local residents called Grozny the most safe city," the press release said.
Residents of the Chechen capital estimated their security at 8.7 points out of 10, which is significantly higher than in other cities.
Sochi was in the second place. Nizhnevartovsk, Surgut and Armavir are from the third to the fifth places respectively. Saransk, Murmansk, Cheboksary, Nizhnekamsk and Vladikavkaz are the last in the top 10.
Moscow and St. Petersburg are in 31st and 42nd places. The city of Shakhty in the Rostov region is in the last 100th place. The top 10 least-safe cities also includes Volgograd, Omsk, Chita, Astrakhan, Saratov, Chelyabinsk, Nizhny Tagil, Balashikha and Perm, RIA Novosti reported.
The editor-in-Chief of the North Ossetia newspaper Alan Kasayev, speaking with the correspondent of Vestnik Kavkaza, noted three factors that, in his opinion, helped Grozny to top this rating. "First, I think it's the good work of the internal affairs agencies. Second, the authority and influence of the head of the republic Ramzan Kadyrov, who does a lot to ensure security in the territory of Chechnya. Third, it's the population's mentality, which also played its role," Kasayev explained.
At the same time, he commented on why the Chechen capital occupied the first place. "It all depends on what kind of methodology was used in the survey. It's all about the nuances. Probably, every city from the top 10 could be named the best one. For example, I have lived in Vladikavkaz in recent years, and could put this city in first place in terms of security for the population," the editor-in-Chief of the North Ossetia newspaper concluded.
