Russian Court Decision on Ingush-Chechen Border Will Affect Entire Country, Observers Say

Paul Goble

Staunton, November 29 – Whatever decision the Russian Constitutional Court takes on Yunus-Bek Yevkurov’s appeal of the republic court’s ruling against his border agreement with Chechnya and the process he used to ratify it, it will profoundly affect relations between Ingush and Chechens, among non-Russians and between them and Moscow across the country.

Kadyrov Says He Won’t Return Land to Ingushetia Regardless of What Russian Court Says

Paul Goble

Staunton, November 30 – Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov says he will block those who oppose the transfer of Ingush territory to Chechnya, that the land involved is Chechen, and that Grozny will not return it “regardless of the decision of the Russian Constitutional Court” (obzor.io/2018/11/30/kadyrov-zayavil-chto-ne-otdast-ingushskie-zemli-obratno-93079/  and club-rf.ru/95/news/52220).

Setting the North Caucasus Ablaze is Easy; Putting Out the Flames is Hard

Setting the North Caucasus Ablaze is Easy; Putting Out the Flames is Hard

Paul Goble

            Staunton, September 23 – Because of its earlier bitter experience, Moscow’s policy in the North Caucasus over the last decade has been to use subsidies and force to make sure that ethnic and religious conflicts do not break out in the region since setting the North Caucasus ablaze is easy – there is a lot of “dry tinder” around – but putting out the conflagration is hard.

            That makes some of Moscow’s recent actions, including both intentional moves and failures, surprising and has led some to ask this week “why did the powers that be allow the outburst of the Kabardino-Balkar conflict?” (onkavkaz.com/news/2403-v-kbr-promorgali-konflikt-pochemu-vlasti-dopustili-vspyshku-kabardino-balkarskogo-protivostojan.html).

Three Chechen Challenges to Moscow’s Control of the North Caucasus

Three Chechen Challenges to Moscow’s Control of the North Caucasus

Paul Goble

            Staunton, September 23 – The Kremlin’s massive payments to Ramzan Kadyrov and the latter’s oft-expressed loyalty to Vladimir Putin as well as the Chechen leader’s repressive policies within his republic have kept Chechnya relatively quiet in recent months and led many to assume that it is no longer a problem for Moscow.

            But three stories this weekend underscore the fact that however pacified Chechnya may appear to be, Kadyrov’s rule and Putin’s deference to him carry with it serious problems for Moscow in controlling that republic and other regions in the North Caucasus whose leaders often view what Kadyrov is doing as an indication of what they can try as well.
