April, 2010. Grozny city - the capital of Chechnya.
Many buildings have already been restored.
Very interesting pictures
Looks like Detroit or New Orleans in the USA
and Flint Mi, Gary In… there are some sad places in here too.
The wreckage fits but there should be more people, abandoned cars and garbage.
What a paradise. Can I get a house there?
sure. convert to islam and learn chechen. or bring in money and help them repair the destruction.
no wonder those muslims hate russians …
Actually that is not true
Natives are tolerant to Russians because Russians helped them to get rid of terrorists (mostly Middle East radicals) and build the republic
You should learn some history bro
Well, that is not what the tens of thousands of refugees are saying…
This picture shows the cruelty of the Russia and world turns the blind eye because Russia doing all these barbarism under the same name as other super powers giving this cruelty a war against terror.
There are nations which bring problems even in such democratic countries as France. Gipsies it is angels if them to compare to Chechens.
Religion is the cause of this. Most Chechens were secular.
Never knew Russian tanks fire off bibles and Russian bomber plains drop crosses… How about Russians not allowing CHechnya to become independent during nineties? Not much religion at play back then.
plains must be planes of course
Chechnya was taken over by radical religious extremists. Most Chechens were appalled by the way the area was hijacked and Sharia implemented. Russia liberated the area that had always been a part of Russia (or for the last 100 years or so). One can argue with the violence, but the religious extremists used violence and fear against Chechen citizens who did not follow them. Wide Angle’s “Greetings from Grozny” (PBS documentary) portrayed the situation accurately.
how old are this photos? surely they ve rebuild a lot of the city by now, or did all the money spent on reconstruction got stolen, like always ?
One day of the 1st Chechen War in Nevzorov’s “Purgatory” (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0846774/). This half-documentary movie is probably equal the legendary “Platoon”.
The price for reconstruction is a regime that rules more by fear and brutality than anything on Russian soil since the days of Stalin and the Nazi occupation.
Just goes to show the price Russia has to pay to prevent sharia law(s) in their region. Why can’t Chechnya be more like Kazakhstan or Tatarstan where there has been no terror reported terror attacks since 9-11-01?
Do you have photos of restored areas of Grozny?
These are the restored areas.
Reminds me of the game The Fog Fall.
Actually today’s Grozny looks better more modern than any Russian city (except Moscow and St. Petersburg of course) because of 90% donations from Russian budget.
They are ruled by Muslim dictator by now…nothing different once ruling Taliban in Afghanistan.they love money very much…
Muslims do not work,it is not their culture, all they do is pray, rape and abuse their women, wage war and smoke hashish.
Down with islam !
