Chechnya: Blood and Belonging

Chechnya: Blood and Belonging

"Recommended. With both sides accusing the other of atrocities, there seems little hope for compromise or a peaceful resolution to the ongoing violence in Chechnya. This program provides a good overview of the situation there. The camera crew for this documentary was smuggled across the border to avoid an escort of Russian soldiers, and they have made a conscientious effort to present both sides of the story." -EMRO Review
This classic documentary offers an objective look at war between Russian and Chechnya. Chechnya we learn won a de facto independence from Russia in 1996 after that war claimed over 80 000 lives. But the warlords refused to serve a central government and the republic soon descended into lawless chaos. Then, following a series of apartment bombings in Moscow, a second war with Chechnya erupted. Russia invaded Chechnya in what it called a campaign against terrorism. Russia denied targeting civilians, but wouldn't allow foreign journalists into Chechnya unless they were escorted by the military. Russia eventually claimed victory over the rebels and today the Chechen Republic remains a federal subject of Russia. Although Chechnya is going through a rebuilding process, fighting does continue in the mountains and south of the republic. Produced by Journeyman Pictures. 04/10DE JSCA 20 min.
