    Black widows were forced out

    The story is full of black widows in poverty and despair caused by the war. Her growth was accompanied by the disintegration of the country, standard of living rapidly backwards. Chechen war, their home was completely destroyed and were living in displaced among their husbands died in combat with Russian forces, she and young children should keep in her husband's family, and live as slaves days. In order to feed their children and themselves, often choose a loan shark, ultimately can not afford to pay back the money, can only pay with their lives, do suicide attacks.

    The poverty and killing is created by the Chechen wahhabists.

    They won their independance and what did they do with it?

    Created a bandit state that sent roving bands of criminals to destabilise its neighbours.

    It wasn't by accident that these roving bands went north further into the Russian Federation rather than south into Georgia.

    They are currently better off than they have ever been.

    Information about arrested Chechen insurgents?

    Post  Farhad Gulemov on Tue Apr 20, 2010 3:25 pm

    Hi,

    Many Chechen insurgents were captured/arrested by the Federal forces in the first and, even more so, during the second Chechen war. I wonder what happened to them. Some of them are low-level "foot soldiers" and some of them are crazed murderers who crucified Russian soldiers, held slave markets, tortured people on video, etc. How did the Russian authorities cope with this influx of ver diverse detainees? I would also be interested in their interrogations (mostly how and why they ended up taking up arms) and in the sentences they received. Last, but not least, I would love to see some footage of the worst of them in handcuffs being interrogated by the Russians (I have seen the videos of Raduev, but there must be more).

    I wonder how many ex Chechen insurgents are now in the Russian prison system and for how long typically they are supposed to stay there. And I also wonder what kind of sentence the worst of the worst got and where they are kept (labor camp or Lefortovo?).

    Can somebody point me to some video, audio or text documents about this, preferably in Russian, but English is fine too.

    Thanks a lot in advance,

    FG

    What do you think happened to them? They were interrogated and killed. If there wasn't time to interrogate we would line them up behind the vehicles and shoot them. Once they were finished with an interrogation they were taken out to a field and shot the same way.

    Do you speak of personal experience when you say this?

    Also - while I have no doubt that many of them were executed, there are also many types of prisoners which the Russian forces would want to keep alive for interrogation purposes, propaganda, etc.

    Lastly, when I see how many of these Chechens got an amnesty and how few of them were actually prosecuted in court for the tortures, slavekeeping, terrorism and banditry it makes me doubt the resolve of the Russian side to really get rid of them.

    What do you think?

    N.Caucasus warlord linked to attack on Ingush president detained!

    N.Caucasus warlord linked to attack on Ingush president detained

    RIA Novosti

    20:50 09/06/2010 MOSCOW, June 9 (RIA Novosti) - A notorious militant leader in Russia's North Caucasus involved in last year's attack on Ingush President Yunus-Bek Yevkurov was detained on Wednesday during a police operation, Russia's security chief said.

    Alexander Bortnikov, the head of Russia's Federal Security Service (FSB), told President Dmitry Medvedev that Ali Taziyev, known as Magas, who was detained in the Ingush town of Malgobek, "is linked to the attack on President Yevkurov."

    Yevkurov was badly injured on June 22, 2009, when his motorcade was hit by a car packed with explosives driven by a suicide bomber.

    In a telephone conversation with RIA Novosti, Yevkurov called Taziyev a "mad dog" and demanded that he be sentenced to life in prison.

    Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov said Taziyev was more dangerous than Chechen militant leader Doku Umarov, who claimed responsibility for ordering the March 29 suicide blasts on the Moscow metro.

    "In his cruelty and in terms of threat he posed to the peaceful population, Magas exceeds notorious terrorist leader Doku Umarov," Kadyrov said.

    "I think that the detention of Magas is a major achievement for the FSB and want to congratulate all participants of the special operation on this result," he added.

    A member of the Public Chamber, Russia's state monitoring body, joined in the praise, saying it was a big success that Magas had been arrested alive as he would have to stand trial for his crimes.

    "In terms of the fight against terrorism, it puts Russia in a position of a normal democratic state," said Maxim Shevchenko, who is also an outspoken TV presenter.

    He said he would not like to see media ascertaining Taziyev's guilt before trial because "every man, whatever he is detained for," should "have a right to a normal defense."

    "This will be a guarantor of the battle against terrorism in the North Caucasus," he added.

    The Federation Council's First Deputy Speaker Alexander Torshin said the detention of Magas would be a blow to the organization of insurgents across the whole region.

    "Magas was surrounded by legends of his elusiveness and invulnerability, so it will take some time for the insurgents to rebuild and continue their activities," he said.

    Bortnikov said the FSB was investigating Taziyev's crimes, which he detailed to the president.

    "This bandit, together with [Shamil] Basayev, organized an attack on Nazran in 2004, and after that he was involved in the blowing-up of two passenger buses in the Stavropol region," he said.

    "He was involved in the kidnapping of the relatives of former Ingush President [Murat] Zyazikov," Bortnikov added. "In 2009, [he] was behind the explosions in the building of the Interior Ministry in Nazran, which resulted in the deaths of dozens of officers."

    The August 2009 truck bombing of the police headquarters in Nazran was Ingushetia's worst attack in several years, with at least 24 people killed.

    "We will report on the progress of the investigation," the FSB chief told Medvedev, who said the participants that took part in the operation should receive government decorations.

    Bortnikov declared the Yevkurov case closed in October 2009, telling a meeting of Russia's National Anti-Terrorism Committee that the militants behind the attack - the leaders of the "Ingush dzhamaat" group, Dzortov and Aliyev - had been killed in a police operation.

    France charges three Chechens in terror probe

    France charges three Chechens in terror probe
    16 July 2010

    Three Chechens have been charged in France in connection with a conspiracy to commit terror attacks in Russia, officials say.

    The suspects are believed to be linked to a rebel group that said it was responsible for attacks on the Moscow metro on 29 March, when 40 people died.

    Arrests last week in the Sarthe area of western France came after a tip-off from Russian authorities.

    No details have been released about the suspects' identities or ages.

    A fourth man was released in the French investigation.

    Those charged are accused of having links with a man arrested in Russia on terrorism charges.

    In May Russian officials said three alleged organisers of the metro suicide bombings had been killed after resisting arrest.

    Two young women from Dagestan, in Russia's North Caucasus, were identified as the suicide bombers.

    Terrorist Attacks/Bombings in Russian Noth Causasus

    Post  AbsoluteZero on Thu Mar 10, 2011 8:52 am


    Ok so the attacks on Civilians, Police and critical infrastructures (raildroads etc..) have been on the rise in recent years (I think thats after the 2008 Russia-Georgia conflict) and so the question is what measures was the government doing to at least bring down the numbers of this incidents? Now if the main reason for the rise of these attacks is the continued flow of funding from abroad, is there no way of intercepting these money transfers to starve the terrorists of funds? Surely there must be some way. Also, had the defense ministry considered deploying several surveillance UAVs to patrol the "hotspots" 24/7 to ensure that any events of terrorist attacks will be immediately monitored and that the Terrorists will be easily tracked and eliminated? Without reliable surveillance, they could just hit-and-run police and civilians and quickly go into hiding. But anyway, I really wish that the government is doing something to address these terrible incidents, not just empty promises.

    Rather than cutting off funding I hope they find the source of the funding and cut off the source so to speak.

    The pattern so far seems to be that attacks occur and then within about 2 weeks there are operations that end in x number of militants killed or captured.
    To be honest I think they are doing a reasonable job and preventing all and any attacks is an unrealistic expectation.
    Infiltration of these threat organisations to learn their structure and extent and then using that information to take them apart would be the most likely solution, but would be incredibly dangerous for the infiltrators... and of course sometimes the group is just too small to safely infiltrate... or remain unknown till it is too late.

    Thanks for the input Garry, well its probably going to be more difficult to eliminate those who raise funds for these terrorists as they possibly have backing from foreign governments with malicious intentions towards Russia but lets just hope for the best and may the situation improve as more terrorists are eliminated by the authorities.

    Identifying them and exposing them is a start. If legal means to bring them to justice don't work then US type tactics of Rendition et al could be used. They have a lot of options that leave no evidence of course.

    Chechen rebel leader Doku Umarov 'dead'

    Chechen rebel leader Doku Umarov 'dead'

    The leader of the Chechen rebels, Doku Umarov, has died, according to Kavkaz Center, the main website of Russia's Islamist militants.

    The website said the Caucasus Emirate leader "became a martyr", but no further details were given.

    There has been no official confirmation from the Russian authorities.

    The militant group has claimed responsibility for a string of deadly attacks in Russia in the last few years.

    Most wanted
    A spokesman for Russia's national anti-terrorism body was quoted by Russian state news agency RIA as saying he could not confirm Mr Umarov was dead, Reuters reports.

    The Kavkaz Center website wrote on its Twitter account that Ali Abu-Mukhammad had been chosen as the new emir by the Caucasus Emirate.

    The website is seen as sympathetic to Islamist militants fighting against Russian rule in the North Caucasus.

    In the past, it has used the line about "becoming a martyr" both for people who were killed and for Islamist militants who died of natural causes, so it is not clear if Doku Umarov died peacefully or if he was killed, says Artyom Liss, head of BBC Russian.

    Over the last few years, the Russian authorities have announced his killing several few times.

    He has often recorded video statements just days after his alleged killing by the Russian forces, our correspondent says.

    The self-styled emir of the Caucasus Emirate is one of Russia's most wanted rebels.

    He has claimed to have ordered the January 2011 Moscow airport bombing that killed 36 people, and the March 2010 suicide bombings in the Moscow Metro, in which 39 people died.

    He is also said to have ordered the November 2009 bombing of a train from Moscow to St Petersburg that left 26 dead.

    Mr Umarov also urged his fighters to target the Winter Olympic Games, which recently took place in the Black Sea resort of Sochi.

    Russia has been battling Islamist insurgents, who are seeking to carve an emirate out of Russia's mostly Muslim southern Caucasus provinces, for years.

    Generally I don't cheer on our "FSB successes" in Kavkaz, as it just illustrates a situation that is not improving, and generally it just seems stupid to me (see Americans chanting in front of the White House after they got OBL- I can't be the only one who cringed at that).

    He murdered people to get what he wanted... so he is no different from most political leaders around the place... the difference is that he uses violence to promote his cause... using hate as a weapon... of course he will be replaced, but that is no reason to not get rid of him when you get the chance...

    FSB confirms Chechen militant leader Doku Umarov neutralized

    SOCHI, April 10. /ITAR-TASS/Mikhail Klimentyev. The operation to neutralize the activity of Chechen warlord Doku Umarov was carried out back at the end of 2013, head of the Russian Federal Security Service Alexander Bortnikov told reporters on Thursday.

    He said reports about the success of the operation had not been circulated for a number of reasons. “Initially, information was leaked into press from other sources. We did not say anything about this, pursuing certain goals of operational and political nature,” the FSB head said.

    “The only thing I can say for the moment is that the work I have said about was done at the end of the previous year. It is still early to speak about its results. Time will come and we will inform the public about what was done and how it was done,” Bortnikov said.

    At a session of the National Antiterrorism Committee on Tuesday, Bortnikov said the activity of the head of the terrorist organization Imrat Kavkaz, Doku Umarov, had been ‘neutralized’.

    Doku Umarov was the mastermind of terrorist acts in the North Caucasus and their active participant. He was on the wanted list on charges of staging numerous terrorist acts, kidnappings, murders and other grave crimes.

    In particular, he claimed responsibility for the explosion of the Nevsky Express speed train in 2009 when 28 people were killed, as well as for the March 2010 terror acts in Moscow’s metro underground railway system that claimed the lives of 40 people.

    The investigation believes that he was the mastermind of a suicide bombing at Moscow’s Domodedovo airport on January 24, 2011, which killed 35 people.

    The attacking group consisted of approx. 20 people, mostly in their teens and 20s. It was actually one of the LARGEST groups of insurgents in all of Caucasus. Shocked Training 1 terrorist, 2, 5, 10 - but 20? Shocked  The scale of western conspiracy is simply unimaginable. Shocked

    Calm down a little bit, my fellow forum users. The entire "Caucasus Emirate" now accounts to how many men? 200? 300?
