Staunton, February 26 – Stalin’s deportation of the Chechens and Ingush began on February 23, 1944, a date both peoples hold sacred but one that Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov moved a decade ago to May 10th in order to mollify Moscow which marks that day as Defender of the Fatherland Day and to play down the event by linking it to the anniversary of his father’s death.
But this year, unexpectedly, Kadyrov ordered the anniversary to marked on the correct day – and the day it was marked by the late Chechen President Dzhokhar Dudayev and even Kadyrov’s father, Akhmet Kadyrov, sparking intense discussions as to why he made this move and also why now (caucasustimes.com/ru/kadyrov-napomnil-moskve-o-sebe-i-chechencah/ and kavkazr.com/a/29790243.html).

North Caucasus Men Increasingly Resemble Their Counterparts in Europe, New Study Says
Staunton, February 27 – Many people explain what has been taking place in the North Caucasus over the last three decades by suggesting that men there have archaic values and cannot fit into modern society, but a new study conducted by the Heinrich Boll Foundation finds that men there increasingly resemble not this image but their counterparts in Europe.
Irina Kosterina, who oversaw the survey of 1800 men in four republics of the region (Dagehstan, Ingushetia, Kabardino-Balkaria and Chechnya) as well as in-depth interviews with 80 of them, says that she and others taking part were surprised by the willingness of the men to speak about their lives (ru.boell.org/ru/2019/02/25/zhizn-muzhchin-na-severnom-kavkaze, summarized at kavkazr.com/a/29793971.html).
