Chechnya - Wikipedia entry
Stashed in: Russia and Friends
Just to get the perspective:
Chechens were at war with Russia since 1700s.During Soviet Rule, the Chechens again rose up against Soviet rule during the 1940s, resulting in the deportation of the entire ethnic Chechen and Ingush populations to the Kazakh SSR (later Kazakhstan) and Siberia in 1944 near the end of World War II.
Sounds like they've had a tough existence.
Last 5 of 6 generations never seen the world without war.
