North Caucasus

Dudayev Envoy Offers Apologies To Kadyrov

A Chechen who worked as an envoy for the late separatist leader Dzhokhar Dudayev has returned to Chechnya and offered apologies to Ramzan Kadyrov, the current antiseparatist and pro-Moscow Chechen leader.

Khizri Aldamov, who was Dudayev's envoy to Georgia, appeared with Kadyrov on Chechen television and said he "fully repented" for "mistakes" during the separatist war against Moscow's rule in the North Caucasus.

Dudayev declared Chechen independence from Russia in 1991 and led separatists in the first Chechen war, until his death in a Russian missile strike in 1996.

In his remarks, Kadyrov urged the prominent London-based Chechen separatist figure Akhmad Zakayev to also return to Chechnya and publicly embrace Kadyrov's leadership.

Kadyrov denounced Zakayev as a "puppet" of foreign intelligence services and a "bad actor."

"he "fully repented" for "mistakes" during the separatist war against Moscow's rule in the North Caucasus".
Read between the lines. Islamization of Chechnya by Kadyrov had a role in it. He learned new strategy, new training, will get new equipment from the sponsors, and train the rest. I do not have any doubts that a new full scale war against Russia will start in the Caucasus. Many ideologists of independence return back to Chechnya. Russia cannot press charges against them or do anything in uncontrolled Chechnya.
The demography statistics shows the decrease of Russians from 1959 to 2010 across the Caucasus. Dagestan: from 20.1% to 3.6%, Chechnya: from 49.4% to 1.9%, Ingushetia: from 46.9% to 0.8%, Kabardino-Balkaria: from 38.7% to 22.5%, Karachay-Cherkessia: from 51.0% to 31.6%.
After the analysis I came to a conclusion that Chechnya and Ingushetia have the highest rates because all the wars were initiated there. Later the war covered Dagestan and the rest of the Caucasus.
