They did not recognize Chechnya’s claim of independence. They invaded after a failed attempt to bomb the Grozny airport. In 1995, Russian troops marched all the way to Grozny, the capital. Total presence: 45,000 troops 10,000 in Grozny Dzhokhar Dudayev, Chechnya’s President, is killed in the fighting. The following year, the Chechens launch a major offensive. The Russians send still more troops. Finally, a ceasefire is agreed to. Russia pulls out. 70,000 casualties. Russia – Chechnya War (1999-Present):  Russia – Chechnya War (1999-Present) In 1999, terrorist bombings in Moscow and elsewhere in Russia are blamed on the Chechens. Islamic militants attempt to assist Dagestan in creating a separate nation. Russia claims that the militants were from Chechnya, and uses the bombings and the attempted secession of Dagestan to invade Chechnya. Russia recovers the Dagestan territories, 100,000 troops sent to Chechnya. The Russians have taken over most of the country by the end of 1999. Grozny is leveled. 250,000 refugees. The war still continues today, despite Russian claims of “imminent victory.” Human Rights Violations:  Human Rights Violations Russia is not playing nicely in Chechnya. The Russians will not comply with UN Commission on Human Rights requirements to “end the ongoing atrocities.” Troops have been accused of raping Chechen women. Over 87 civilians have been “disappeared” between 2000 and 2002. Torture A search on Russia and Chechnya on Human Rights yielded 11 pages of results, dating from 1990 to 2002.
