Abstract: On August 28, 2012, Aminat Kurbanova committed suicide in the Dagestani village of Chirkei, killing the spiritual leader of the two major Sufi orders in the North Caucasus, and six other people. Earlier, Maria Khorosheva (and her husband Razdobud’ko) perpetrated a suicide attack on a Dagestani police station. But these are just two examples. Overall, 46 women (sometimes in groups) committed 26 terrorist acts in Russian territories during the last 12 years; most of them in Chechnya, Dagestan, and Moscow.
