    Sounds like a nice tool for bonding with muslim (or requiring muslim-savvy security staff) states over common security interests. It’s about time we get some real ground back for partially regained Soviet influence. Also, gives a nice new ring to the weak spin of Chechnia as a tourism region =D

    Ahhh … So … what is the moral of this idea?
    So, Kadyrov has built himself a new amusement park. Is this the accurate interpretation?

    Chechens have a distinct historical identity and a distinct language … from Russia.
    So, instead of Moscow granting enhanced autonomy to Chechenya, which would de facto equivalate with independence, Moscow is playing along with all sorts of gimmick solutions to keep a distinct people (but with a divergent religion) within its borders: they’re building mosques upon mosques, they are not sending Chechen fighters to Syria unless they are perfectly certain they will not defect to the militants and Daesh … Every now and then, Kadyrov throws a party for himself, invites Jean Claude Van Damme and Steven Seagal.

    What about Dagestan?

      You have to understand that Chechnya to Russia is like South Korea to the United States.

        Don’t explain Russia to a guy with ukrainian/russian nickname, also the whole N.Caucasus is more like our Scotland.
