Terrorist organizations.
Anti-government feelings.
Different wars never getting closure. Our Opinion We think that the largest challenges that are facing are different types of cultural adversities. While Chechnya has a different religion, and a different language. We also think that Russia's desire to be as large as possible, and wanted to keep Chechnya for resources, is also a large factor in the unrest within the country.
We think that the outcome of this conflict is that Chechnya will get its independence, because right now, right now Chechnya has the upper hand, and has the stronger forces, and the attention of the Russian government is divided, and Russia has so much going on. Outside Forces United Nations, and the United States.
Post 9/11, US declared war on terror, the Russian leader, Putin, disassembled anti-Russian terrorist groups.
In July 2002, the UN stopped the foreign going to Chechnya because a Russian aid worker had been kidnapped. Classifying the Dispute The border between Chechnya and Russia is the Caucasus Mountains.
It is a Positional/Locational border because the mountains are a physical feature that divides the two regions.
No need of physical demarcation because the mountains already serve as a physical boundary.
