Kriegsfelde Russia Chechnya

Monday, 11. December 2017

Chechen oil, drug trade violation of human rights in the history of the last 200 years has tried again and again Russia to follow his ambitions. The data, in 1859, 1922 is available for the absolute annexation of this Caucasian country through the Russian Empire, where the years of the war of independence give a surging and Chechnya as early as 1991 after the collapse of the USSR, until there could to 1994 who win control of the country. Long, the situation is not stable, since the oilfield found in the late 70s in the Caspian Sea and its shores from Chechens made an important aid. When the new Russian Government decides to put down troops in 1994 in the North Caucasus to send, and the resistance of the Chechens, she must fight lack of success. The country funded by the oil production can keep because resistance so that only after a short time it must fall back to the other methods of money acquisition.

Since the 90 years kidnapping is regarded as the second most important source of income, and drug trafficking as a destructive means of obtaining money. The everyday barbarism of kidnapping is one of the largest items in the Chechen national product. The total yield of approximately 250 police captured abductions is about par with the proceeds of the oil industry, where ransom that is paid without the intervention of the police, is not taken into account. Premiums are calculated according to origin and social status of the prisoners, so that Russian prisoners for not small sums of money be bought off, and this means shows us that human rights are fundamentally shaken the pillars. Germany has offered for the Caucasus situation to be interested in, and already dozens of letters and help since 1999. Human very much for local people has done in recent years human rights organisations, Rights Watch, but 2009, the world got it to do with a large loss. Natalya Estemirova, a Russian human rights campaigner murdered this year on 15 July.

This is a great sacrifice. If it is, that Russia a finger on the Help lever sets, entauscht you are. There was not much done. The situation in the Caucasus is as it was, and Menschenrechtsverletzend, notabene politically unstable. To encourage Germany in the fight against human rights violations in Russia, Rights Watch 2005 human opened an Office in Berlin. The organization hoped that our positive relations between countries such as Russia, this struggle will demand. This year, Russia’s Government had declared the anti-terrorist fight in Chechnya ended. The Memorial, with a seat in Germany, had ceased his work for the murder of Natalya Estemirova in the second quarter of this year. It turned out that working in Chechnya means death. Human rights organizations, as well as in certain circles one for wife Natalya Estemirova’s murder accused President Kadyrov. Let us hope that the situation has slowly improved, and we will go back to work in Chechnya.
