Doukaev is speaking about his first-hand experiences as a university teacher during the terrifying, "apocalyptic" siege of Grozny in December 1994, during the first Chechen war.
"The most dangerous thing for us -- for civilians -- was, first, mortar fire and second, sniper fire. The Russians had marksmen on various buildings, and it was really tough at the time, so we had to hide, we had to run. And, of course, the mortar fire is quite indiscriminate. but you get used to that in several days, unfortunately," Doukaev remembers.
