Putin's Secret War in the North Caucasus - By Sarah Mendelson | Foreign Policy


I put this news, because something is going wrong in the North Caucasus. At least 10 people die every day in this region. This region is multicultural; there are Ingushes, Dagestanis, Chechens, North Ossetians, and other small societies. But these people are mainly Muslim. Violent incidents include abductions of military personnel and civilians, bombings, assassinations of key civilian and military leaders, rebel attacks, police or military operations against suspected militants, destruction of property by militants, etc. All these incidents are occurring in Chechnya, Ingushetia, Kabardino-Balkaria, North Ossetia, and Dagestan. As a result, someone or something tries to quieten down some people in this region. For more information about this issue, you should read this article. It is really interesting!
