Republika Czeczenii – sukces czy porażka rosyjskiej polityki wewnętrznej?


  • Robert Kłaczyński


The article discusses the complex national, economic, and cultural relations in the north-Caucasian republic as well as evaluates the consequences of the Russian politics towards Chechnya since the end of the second intervention until now. It is a picture full of contradictions. The success of rebuilding the infrastructure of the republic and ensuring safety to its citizens was paid with authoritarian regime of Ramzan Kadyrov. The republic is becoming an Islamic enclave in the area of Orthodox Russia. It gives rise to concerns about the territorial integrity of the Russian Federation. Thus, the price that Russians are paying for winning the war against separatists is high and still difficult to define in its final political and economic reckoning.
