Which words come to mind when Chechnya is mentioned? Fear, ruins, terrorism, explosions, Wahhabi, mountains… And it is still the place where people are kidnapped, where the whole villages are razed to the ground. However someone will tell you that you won’t find a more safe city, all you need to do is to behave in a right way.

    In the picture of the men “charging the gun”, the men have cylindrical objects in pockets on their chest — what are these objects?

    I’m glad there are now elites in Grozny with business interests. It means there will be peace for the population, like everywhere else in the capitalist world. :)
