Actual losses of Chechnya in the “special operation” are comparable to those of Dagestan, which is the leader among all Russian regions, but none of Kadyrov’s relatives are among those killed

The “exemplary” Chechnya also pays a bloody price for participating in the Kremlin’s aggression, but, as might be expected, these losses are hushed up, and only the “unprivileged” Chechens suffer them.

Honey is sweet, but the bees sting: Russia decided not to press on expanding its territory by joining Kherson oblast

Russia’s aspiration to compulsively absorb new and new territories can’t be fulfilled so easily as it used to be in the last centuries.

Southern Ossetia changed its mind to become a part of Russia

Prior to the elections the presidential race leader of the self-proclaimed Southern Ossetia Alan Gagloev supported the idea of joining the Russian Federation.

“If the West had imposed similar sanctions in 1999-2000 in response to the genocide in Chechnya, there certainly would not have been any invasion of Georgia and Ukraine.”

Russia did not become the country we see now overnight. For decades, the entire civilized world has been watching the Russian Federation turning into another reincarnation of the “prison of nations”. However, only the war has forced the international community to rethink some things that previously they were afraid to think about, lest they bring trouble.

You are waging the war in the wrong direction: Kadyrov posted the video with his people taking control over the village which was under LPR’s control for 8 years

“Putin personifies this old woman with the red flag”: the old woman’s image with the USSR flag took on a new meaning

To be on the safe side, the monument to an old woman holding the USSR flag, which became a symbol of supporting the Russian war in Ukraine, was taken away from the Russian city of Belgorod. However, it re-appeared in the occupied Mariupol. According to GreenPost, there are at least two reasons behind close attention to this symbol irrespective of its obvious ugliness for non-Russians.
