Also, I have direct intel that Chechens from Russia are indeed committing atrocities within Ukraine. Atrocities of a nature that those who followed the actions of the Islamic State would find typical, and are so far away from the Geneva Convention that retaliation of pretty much any kind would be understandable. The use of Chechen Muslims changes the equation a lot. It looks less and less geopolitical maneuvering with a Casus Belli that one might understand, to something very very dark.

  5. Moscow Shutting Down Amnesty, Human Rights Watch In Russia

    Russia said on Friday it was shutting down the local offices of more than a dozen international organisations including Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International and the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

    Fifteen organisations have been taken off Russia’s registry of international organisations and foreign NGOs due to “violations of the current legislation of the Russian Federation,” the justice ministry said in a statement without providing further details.

    Russia also shut down the local offices of Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom, the Friedrich Ebert Foundation, the Aga Khan Foundation, the Wspolnota Polska Association and other organisations.

    The announcement came on the 44th day of Russia’s military campaign in pro-Western Ukraine, with thousands killed and more than 11 million having fled their homes or the country in the worst refugee crisis in Europe since World War II.

    Agnes Callamard, Secretary General of Amnesty International, said her organisation would continue to support Russians.

    “We will redouble our efforts to expose Russia’s egregious human rights violations both at home and abroad,” she said in a statement.

    “In a country where scores of activists and dissidents have been imprisoned, killed or exiled, where independent media has been smeared, blocked or forced to self-censor, and where civil society organizations have been outlawed or liquidated, you must be doing something right if the Kremlin tries to shut you up.”

    Over the past year Russian authorities have been presiding over an unprecedented crackdown on dissent and independent journalism.

    In a watershed moment in Russia’s post-Soviet history, late last year Russia shut down Memorial, the country’s most prominent rights group

    Founded in 1989 by Soviet dissidents including Nobel Peace Prize laureate Andrei Sakharov, it chronicled Stalin-era purges and also campaigned for the rights of political prisoners and other marginalised groups.

  9. About #2. The Chechen soldiers see this fight as jihad against the Ukrainians, so says the Chechen Mufti: https://www.eng.kavkaz-uzel.eu/articles/58364/

    I will never forget or forgive the Chechens. In 2004, I followed their jihad in Beslan where they held Christian teachers, parents and children (even babies) hostage for three days. The jihadis included women as well as men. It was a horror show. They committed unspeakable acts, following the commands of Mohammed who said amongst other evil things that he had been made victorious through terror.
