'It Was Hell On Earth': Remembering The First Chechen War


Aslan Doukaev was a university professor in Grozny when the first Chechen war broke out on December 11, 1994. Thousands died during the brutal 20-month conflict between Chechen separatist fighters and Russian government forces. Twenty years later and now the director of RFE/RL's North Caucasus Service, Doukaev looks back on the destruction wrought upon his native city. (RFE/RL)
