  • What happened to self-determination?

    Each ethnic people should have self-determination for a more stable society, free of persecution of minorities. If a group was being persecuted, it would have a country to go to without fear of persecution. Why should the Dargwas and the Chechens be any different to the Poles or the Fijians?

  • Dagestan & Chechnya should gain independence.

    A lot of the recent terrorism by separatists has been coming from Russian Muslims who demand independence for their homelands. The terrorist attacks on civilians would cease if Russia granted them independence. Putin should help to protect his people by allowing these small regions of the Russian Federation to become their own nations.

  • These peole have had ethnic cleansing, genocide and the holocaust put together inflicted on them.

    The death rates dont lie. Even in the 21st century animals are treated more humanely in some countroies than the soviet treatment of the chechans and dagestanis. They have a different culture, language and religion to russia so why do the russians think they can still control them. Allah akbar.

  • Self determination is needed

    They need their own government where they will not be discriminated and somewhere where they are safe and they are not under threat. They need help and all russia does is kill them. I think that should change. Chechnya deserves it's own country and the idea is accepted by it's people.

  • Chechnya & Dagestan a nations

    Chechnya and Dagestan are both Nations in Russian Exile when the Soviet Union fell in 1991 Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Estonia, Georgia(Republic), Kazakhstan, Kygystan, Latvia, Lithunia, Russia, Tajikstan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan all gained freedom why cant the other republics Smaller than the State of Texas and Montana gain freedom there are about over 20 Republics in Russia that haven't gained independence and civil war in Russia over there freedom in some examples. Chechen war 1st&2nd South Ossestia War North Ossestia war Russian Georgian War 2008 there is even civil wars in Former Soviet Nations like Georgia over Akzbehia. I say if Russia wants to stop wasting time and money and soldiers lives the kremlin in Moscow needs to let them free.

  • Negotiating with terrorists

    By granting independence, Russia would be supporting a terrorist organization. This shows other terrorist groups around the world, that by carrying out these terror attacks, they can manipulate the world. Russia would be sending a message to terrorists that they are willing to negotiate. If Chechnya were not to be terrorizing the people, then it would be a consideration, but killing to gain independence is detrimental to the safety of the world.

  • Everyone must understand that gaining independence from a larger power is not allows good.

    Just because everyone wants to be independent, does not mean it would be a good decision.

    With becoming independent, a nation must...
    1- Decide on a currency.
    2- Build a reasonable and effective Government structure that everyone (including the war ready militias) like from scratch.
    3- Build every diplomatic relation from mostly stretch.
    4- Set up trade agreements, knowing you will likely be on the bitter end, from scratch.
    5- Start basically everything else from scratch.
    6- Build a military.
    7- Pray the population is both large enough and has enough money to pay for a government that is better than 'crap.'

    The process needed to form a new nation, and defend it is a horrible one. The Currency will barely match up to your prior currency, and the Diplomatic and Trade relations will be harsh and even impossible to form.

    Scotland is an example. The (majority of the) Scots do not want to separate from the UK because they know it is simply better to not become independent.

    Becoming Independent is not entirely better. Even if the Government is bad, leaving may (and for under-sized nations, most likely will) be worse.
