MOSCOW, August 31 (RIA Novosti) Mobs attacked offices of two leading Russian cell phone operators in Chechnya, pelting them with eggs in protest against alleged fraud at an online voting contest for best national landmark where a Chechen mosque was denied victory.
Attacks on Friday targeted the offices Megafon and Beeline, two of Russias big three of cell phone operators, in Grozny, the capital of the North Caucasus republic.
Footage of at least one attack was available on YouTube, the video showing dozens of young men energetically throwing eggs and other objects at a closed office building, while others film them on their own cellphones.
Beeline said Saturday it has temporarily closed all its offices in Chechnya over safety concerns.
The scandal broke out when Groznys Akhmad Kadyrov Mosque narrowly lost the second round of the Russia 10 contest, aimed to select Russias best unknown landmarks in order to give a boost to domestic tourism and geopatriotism, as the organizers attested it.
The mosque ended up some 400,000 votes short of the Kolomna kremlin, a medieval castle in heartland Russia, despite leading the vote most of the time thanks to a massive promotion campaign spearheaded by Chechen leadership.

Putin ought to concentrate on wiping these SOBs out. They are insufferable. If it had been up to Muslims to invent the technology of the past two centuries, they wouldn’t exist today. They can only destroy stuff.
Oh those frisky Chechen Muslims, they make such good neighbors, especially if you treat them well.
Be fun to watch.
The Grozny Marathon will be held Sept 11, 2013
Shut down cell phone service.
Cripple the beast so the muzzies can’t use their phones as terror instruments.
