Ali Askerov theorizes that although the Russo-Chechen wars that unfolded between 1994 and 1996, and again from 1999 to 2008, the Chechen predicament continues to remain uncertain. The enduring demand of the Chechen people for national independence persists, while Russia’s ruthless aggression towards its ethnic minorities and neighboring sovereign nations exhibits no discernible signs of diminishing.
Immerse yourself in this powerful narrative that shines a light on resilience, determination, and the pursuit of freedom of Chechnya and the Chechen people.
Ali Askerov is Associate Professor at the Department of Peace and Conflict Studies, University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
