    Fortunately, the major fighting in Chechnya is over. Chechnya's capital Grozny is beign rebuilt. Commercial airflights now link Moscow and Grozny. Most major pro-independence fighters were either eliminated or captured. Russians were able to conquer Chechnya mostly through brutallity of their own. Another largest reason of the Russians success lays in the hands of Mr. Kadyrov, Chechen's president and chechen himself, who was allowed to use whatever force necessary to subdue his anti-Russian opponents. People of Chechnya live in a fear to simply vanish in the hands of Kadyrov's oprychniki. Whatever are the means, the life in Chechnya looks much better than just a few years ago.

    As a person with a modest background in policy analysis, let me tell you: there always have to be 2 things when trying to achieve something. First, a clear goal and, secondly, the will to achieve this goal. When we look at the Chechnya thing, we see none of the above.

    All-out fighting has ended. There's just occasional anti-terrorist operations since there's still some guerrillas left that like to organize bombings and suicide-attacks. Other than that, everything is just peachy.
