Malgobek (Russian: Малгобек; Ingush: МагIалбике) is a town in the Republic of Ingushetia, Russia, located 45 kilometers (28 mi) northwest of the republic's capital Magas. Population: 31,076 (2010 Census preliminary results);[1] 41,876 (2002 Census);[2] 20,364 (1989 Census).[4]

Malgobek was founded in 1935 as a settlement for workers at then recently discovered oilfields, on the territory of former Ingush villages of Malgobek-Balka (Малгобек-Балка) and Chechen-Balka (Чечен-Балка). Town status was granted to it in 1939.

During World War II, Malgobek was occupied by the German forces from September 12, 1942 to January 3, 1943, when it was recaptured by the Red Army. In October 2007, Malgobek was conferred the status of City of Military Glory by President Vladimir Putin for heroically stopping the German forces at its borders.[5]

In the 1990s, the town's population doubled due to an influx of refugees from the wartorn neighboring republic of Chechnya.

Besides the oil activities of the company Ingushneftegasprom, the town's industry includes woodworking and food related industries.

Malgobek, as well as Sunzha, is a point at issue in the Chechen-Ingush border delimitation discussion.[6]
