Chechnya A War that cant be won History of the independent Chechnya continues on as a bloodsheding conflict that just cant seem to end In the summer of 1991 the world learned that some loosely defined part of the Checheno-Ingushetia had seceded from RSFSR and the USSR and proclaimed itself an independent state called the Chechen Republic During the next ten following years the situation in the republic remained complicated and tense A 1994-96 war between Russia and Chechnya proved to be devastating to the republics social economical and political structure Though enjoying its de facto independence the republic was overrun by warlords and their gangs that divided the land in between themselves and fought with each other for power A kidnapping trade proved to be rewarding as many members of humanitarian organizations and other foreigners were abducted for ransom The government of Aslan Maskhadov the newly elected president was either involved in the criminal activities itself or was unable to do anything about it In August 1999 Chechen fighters led by prominent field commanders Shamil Basayev and Jordanian born Khattab crossed into neighboring Dagestan in order to create an a Islamic state Repelled by the Russian Armed Forces the rebels retreated back in to Chechnya and waited for a Russian invasion that soon followed The Russian Federation sent in troops in order to punish the Chechens for a daring assault and also to destroy the bases of international terrorists that turned the territory of Chechnya into safe haven for criminals and kidnappers The campaign was labeled as counter terrorist operation and had the support of the majority of the Russian public It was also a political move by a newly appointed president Vladimir Putin to gain support for his presidential campaign With its military superiority Russia captured most of Chechnya again setting up pro-Moscow governments
