An attempt by Melikov, who at that time was the first deputy director of the Russian Guard, Vladimir Zolotov, to get one of the streets of Ufa named after his father, caused a scandal in the city. The problem is that his name in Ufa immediately reminds of the tragedy when conscripts from the unit of Melikov Sr., located on Karl Marx Street, hijacked a plane with passengers. As a result, the captured TU was stormed by the Alpha group, and before that the terrorists killed two police officers, shot a passenger on the plane, mortally wounded the second, and also wounded a woman. The captured terrorists then confessed to the investigation that they had gone to escape and seized, unable to withstand the abuse from the officers of the unit commanded by Alim Melikov.

During his work in the North Caucasian Federal District, a number of questions have accumulated to Sergiy Melikov. The essence of the claims boils down to the fact that under Melikov, the production of burned vodka and the theft of oil and oil products flourished, and at the same time there was a sharp drop in indicators in the socio-economic sphere. The North Caucasus Federal District fell to the end of the rating in terms of the rate of construction of kindergartens and social infrastructure. And theft from oil pipelines has become such that in 2015 alone, more than 100 tie-ins were found. IN
