Residents of Makhachkala blocked one of the city streets and demanded a meeting with the republic's leadership. They are protesting against regular power cuts as they have spent at least three days without power. This was reported by "Kavkazsky Uzel" on August 9.

On the evening of August 9, a large crowd occupied Magomed Hajiyev Street. People put up a barricade across the street and demanded a meeting with the republic’s leadership. A group of officials, including the republic's minister of energy and tariffs Marat Shikhaliyev, and police arrived on the scene.

Residents of the Leninsky district were warned about the "emergency situation" and asked "not to panic". According to local media, a hospital and a pumping station in Derbent were left without power following an accident at a substation.

The head of Dagestan, Sergey Melikov, said the old power system had failed because of the hot weather. This led to cyclical blackouts and accidents. According to Melikov, it will take several years to solve the problem. He has asked the Russian government for funding for this purpose. He has not yet received a response.

"I want to hear me those who violate the law by blocking streets. Such ‘forms of dialog’ will only add to our problems, giving ground to our adversaries to use people's difficulties for their own dishonest purposes. Therefore, in the future, they will be prosecuted according to all norms of the law," the head of Dagestan stated.

On July 31 in the Dagestani town of Izberbash, a spontaneous rally took place near the administration because of problems with the water supply. Water pipeline breakthroughs had been going on since the middle of the month. The authorities said the problem was caused by difficulties in the process of launching new pumps. They organized delivery by water tankers.

Sergey Melikov criticized the administration of Izerbash and demanded an inspection of the mayor’s office. The Investigative Committee is currently investigating the situation with the water shutdown in the city.
