    Reminds me of being back in Afghanistan while people in the U.S. don’t know or care what is happening around the world.

    The mercenary on “Chechnya, Russia, Mopping up operation, April 2002″ wears something that looks like the British camos I bought in a surplus store for my workshop.

    Very high quality photography. Interesting the destruction in the Chechen city.

    • asdfg says:

      Grozny a Chechen city? Grozny was built by Russia, and is IN Russia. If Russia wants to destroy it it’s their business.

      • ptc says:

        Yes, it occupied by Russia. Does not mean it is part of Russia.

        • ayaa says:

          It’s a Russian city, founded in 1869. The city was not widely inhabited by the local Chechens until well into Stalins regime, over 50 years later. Even then it was because he didn’t trust the Cossacks, who formed the majority of Groznys population.

          • Grozny says:

            it was built on the site of thirteen leveled Chechen villages, including Kuli-Jurt, Alkhanchu, Khankala, Bugan-Jurt, Yandara, Sunzha-Jurt, Maas and Zhima-Chechen. The villages were destroyed and the fortress was built.Today Grozny is a Chechen city

    Great pix. Especially like the one of the soldiers sitting outside in their make-shift living room. Comfy.

    “Kosta Khetagurov street, destroyed by the Georgian artillery at the Osettian settlement of Tsunar, August 13th, 2008, South Ossetia.” – All I can see is a Lada which has been run over by a tank or BTR. There are no signs of artillery fire. Get your facts right!
