your opinion?

i believe that chechens are a bit stupid, they were independent, only officially under Russian rule by 1993 and then begun terrorizing nearby provinces (Dagestan, Ingushetyia). Isn't that stupid? What would you do in that case, if you were Russian President, if Chechens attacked the Russian Federation?

I actually talked with an Ingushi guy once that talked about that. The Chechens asked for independence but such requests came to nothing. When they declared independence they got Russian tanks rolling across their nation- and the Russian Army is QUITE brutal and inhumane there (it makes sense that some Chechens feel compelled to commit horrible terrorist acts). When I asked about the whole Dagestan incident, he told me that the Chechens who invaded Dagestan were a split-off faction from the main seperatist forces- not endorsed by most Chechens.

Simple: I wouldn't BE the President of Russian Federation, but the President of the restored RSFSR, and I would grant the Chechen people the right to independence and autonomy :P

yeah man that would be nice. You know, Greeks were in the Ottoman government? Actually most of it? And it was no turkey, fool.

GREEKS from FANARI (Fener, nowadays Istanbul) were rulers of Serbia, Moldavia, Wallachia, etc. ORTHODOX GREEKS.

Ottomans were relied on language-knowing persons...such as Greeks in that age.

Chechnya Has been part of Russian Territory A LONG TIME(Pardon caps).

Russia Giving up Chechnya would be like America giving up Virginia!

They would never have this kind of problem, had the Soviet Union still existed.

Most of the Chechenyans want Chechenya to be independent. Do you have any reason to justify them not getting autonomy beyond pan-Russian nationalism?

Russia/USSR controlled chechenya for hundreds of years. It is like saying to the Russians renaming Kaliningrad to Konigsberg, for English giving away Scotland, for Greeks allowing Turkey to conquer Cyprus (as part of Turkey), and it goes...

I belive over-extended autonomy would be good for both sides.
