  3. Testicules says:

    What a paradise. Can I get a house there?

  4. Capitalist Pig says:

    no wonder those muslims hate russians …

    • Doomer says:

      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

  5. Prince says:

    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.

  6. SovMarxist1924 says:

    Religion is the cause of this. Most Chechens were secular.

    • too much vodka says:

      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.

      • too much vodka says:

        plains must be planes of course

        • SovMarxist1924 says:

          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.

  7. Yurka says:

    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 ?

  8. solevator says:

    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”.

  9. mike says:

    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.

  10. Sense sir me says:

    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?

  11. Sense sir me says:

    Do you have photos of restored areas of Grozny?

  12. tonepoet says:

    Reminds me of the game The Fog Fall.

  13. Zolotoy Grebeshok says:

    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.

  14. Karabao says:

    They are ruled by Muslim dictator by now…nothing different once ruling Taliban in Afghanistan.they love money very much…

  15. Jan says:

    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 !
