Is the road, border or area open and accessible to foreigners? Is there danger?

OWNER, if you want to doubt the personal experiences of others, please understand that other may also doubt yours. At any rate, it seems pretty normal for different people to have different experiences.

bwv812, if you are trying to teach others, please understand that others can also teach you. In any case, it is quite normal to be critical of any information, especially “hunting stories”.

With great pleasure! Do you have up-to-date information on this issue from yourself? This is very interesting to me, because I imagine traveling around the North Caucasus this summer by car from Almaty. I was closest to the specified region in October 2022 (Krasnodar, Stavropol, Elista, Astrakhan). As I already wrote, I didn’t have any problems. It would be interesting to know your personal experience on this issue.
