  • Chechnya

    Well I have done a little reading on wiki on the Russian province of Chechnya I wonder if the Russian Federation under Boris Yeltsin let Chechnya in peace or the reason for the 1st war was because of the oil fields or the strategic position near Georgia and North Ossetia?

    Most likely all of the above, plus they were trying to break way from the Federation.

      Hmm Wiki is not very good on Russia. Personaly I think ethnic cleansing of Russian and bandit raids into neighboring areas was pretty decisive reasons.

        mmm as they say if you turn your back on mother Russia you end up in a ditch.


        Also I wonder if Russia didn't start the first war would Chechnya have all those kidnappings and the famouse terriosm attack on a Russian theatre

            Google Sukhumi massacre. Basayevs crew made a name for themselves in that one and Nagorno-Karabakh, years before returning home.
            Always seems to end the same way when a country tries to use Islamists as proxy troops. eg America supporting Afghan Arabsagainst the USSR, Russian support for Chechens/mountain people helping Abkhazia, Azeris,etc
