    It has taken centuries but Chechnya has finally conquered Russia.

      The Chechens need to be careful. Putin could decide to save money by killing all of them. And, he would, without concern for the opinion of the NYTimes.

        But if Putin did that, he would also face severe protests from President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry. Who could withstand that?

    “Can’t Stop Feeding the Caucasus”

    As a Russian I find this phrasing infuriating. Caucasus is a part of Russia and the locals are Russian citizens. If Karina thinks otherwise, he should just fucking say so – there is 5 year prison term for promoting separatism in Russia.
