The town in the mountains of Kabardino-Balkaria in 2000 has lost its most important city-forming enterprise - Plant, specializing in mining and enrichment of tungsten-molybdenum ore. Following the devastation of the city of Mill suffered another attack - sel (mud-rock flow from the mountains), which claimed the lives of about 50 people, as well as destroyed road bridge into the city. The bridge was restored, however gradoobrazueschee company is not restored, which means there is no work in the city. People leave their homes, apartments sell for a pittance, or simply abandoned. They are populated by the inhabitants of neighboring villages sometimes, sometimes rebels. The city is administered periodically mode counter-terrorist operation.
