NOTE:  Once again, the rebels in Chechnya have launched a bold direct assault on the government, this time attacking the parliament while both in session and being visited by a high-ranking Russian official.  Pacified Chechnya? We think not.

NOTE: Vladimir Putin’s marriage is on the rocks. What a surprise.

  1. Well, more failure for Russia in the Caucasus

    Today the insurgents have attacked the Chechen Parliament building in Grozny.

    Mission successful, war over in Chechnya?

    Doubt it…

    • And the Ministry of Agriculture.

      Oh Andrew, don’t you know that Kadyrov totally pacified Chechnya and it’s now so peaceful? Most of the “experts” would tell you this, probably influenced by Kadyrov saying it’s the most peaceful part of Russia.

      For example, check out this idiot writing just on this (“have moved over”, in reality the locals taking arms in their republics):

      “Most of the Islamist insurgents have moved over into the neighboring Russian republics of Dagestan and Ingushetia, with terrorist attacks seldom striking at the heart of Grozny in recent years.” http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/39734140/ns/world_news-europe/

      Meanwhile in real world, only Umarov has “moved over”, after the Chechen fighters told him to go **** himself a few months ago And poor guy’s still struggling to understand what happened, ordering around the men not under his command: http://www.kavkazcenter.com/eng/content/2010/10/16/12624.shtml

  3. A battle ensued in which at least two rocket-propelled grenades were discharged, visiting Russian politician Igor Danilov told Kommersant.

    Mr Danilov said he had been due to attend a meeting at the parliament to “hear how modern Chechnya was faring in peacetime”.

    According to Kommersant, the two gunmen kept firing until their ammunition ran out, then both blew themselves up with bombs.

    In all, six people including the militants were killed and 17 injured.


    Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov arrived at the scene soon after the attack.

    “As a result of the coherent actions of the law enforcement agencies, the liquidation of the insurgents was accomplished within 15 to 20 minutes, and all the lawmakers and technical personnel were released,” Kadyrov said in a statement.

    Sverdlovsk lawmaker Igor Danilov, one of the people trapped in the parliament during the attack, told Rossia One television that shooting lasted about 1 1/2 hours outside the building.

  4. Moscow angered by Georgian move that breaks the North Caucasus’ isolation


    Responding to domestic security concerns, Georgian officials said humanitarian reasons were involved in their decision. “Those living in the North Caucasus are under the [Russian] federal power-wielding structures’ terror,” Georgian Interior Minister Vano Merabishvili said in an interview with Rustavi 2 TV aired late on October 16. “It is beneficial for us from the political, economic, as well as humanitarian point of view to have more integration with the North Caucasus people and to give them [residents of the region] the opportunity to be connected with the Western world via Georgia.” Merabishvili also predicted the number of people traveling for Georgian business, tourism and medical treatment would increase (www.civil.ge, October 17).

    Lifting the visa requirements for North Caucasians appears to be one of the first steps of the Georgian government’s strategy. In his speech at the U.N. General Assembly on September 23, President Mikheil Saakashvili announced his government’s new approach, stating that, “[he] came here to speak about this change and to promote a specific vision – a vision for a free, stable and united Caucasus.” Saakashvili hailed the North Caucasus as “a region where individuals and souls were fundamentally free but where citizens were politically oppressed, where people and cultures were deeply tolerant but where governments and authorities created artificial divisions” (www.president.gov.ge, September 23).

    Congratulations to the American women’s gymnastics that defeated China and took the highly prized second place in in the team competition at the World Championships. Only Russians finished higher than the Americans. But with a horde of 16 and even 15 year old superstars flooding the current Russia team, Russia will be invincible for at least the next 6 years. So, USA is the very best among the also-ran.

    Even more belated congratulations to the USA men’s volleyball team for finishing 6th in the World Championships. They too lost to Russia. The score was 3-0. Russia hardly broke a sweat. It was the best US performance in 16 years. It was the easiest game for Russia in many years.


    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Oct. 9, 2010) The U.S. Men’s National Volleyball Team will end the 2010 FIVB World Championship in sixth place after falling to Russia, 25-19, 25-21, 25-19 on Saturday before an enthusiastic crowd of 4,700 in Modena, Italy.

    It is the best World Championship finish for the U.S. Men (6-3 overall) since they finished third in 1994. Russia finishes the World Championship in fifth place with a 7-2 record.


    Our congratulations to Russia as well! Molodets! Maybe the coaches from these successful teams could give a lecture to the coaches of the sports Russians actually care about (figure skating, soccer, ice hockey) and teach them how to avoid humiliating the nation over and over and over again. They might have a word with Russian female tennis players too!

      Gymnastics is a sport that Russians care about a lot.

      “Maybe the coaches from these successful teams could give a lecture to the coaches of the sports Russians actually care about (figure skating, soccer, ice hockey) and teach them how to avoid humiliating the nation over and over and over again. They might have a word with Russian female tennis players too!”

      I am not sure what you mean by “over and over and over again” here. Let me remind you that, say, ot only before but even AFTER the breakup of the USSR in 1992, it has been much better than USA in both soccer and ice hockey. In soccer, Russia is the bronze medalist of the European Championships and is currently raked 10th in the World, while USA is 25th:


      The only reason why USA has appeared in the World Cup is because FIFA severely restricts the number of European countries there, while favoring North and Central America, where USA competes against mostly dwarf countries like Trinidad.

      In ice hockey, Russia did indeed have one bad game when it lost to Canada on Canada’s home ice in the last Olympics, but so did everybody else. And yes, it also lost to USA on USA’s home ice in the 1980 Olympics 30 years ago. But otherwise, Russia has demolished both Canada ad USA almost every time when they played them in outside of North America: in Europe and Asia.

      In fact, USA has not won World Championships in 50 years, while Russia has won 23 times in the last 50 years. In the last three World Championships Russia won two golds ad one silver. USA hasn’t won any medals at all in the last 6 years, while Russia has won 2 golds, 1 silver and 2 bronzes.

      Ad in figure skating, since 1992, Russia has won 14 out of 25 Olympic golds, while USA has won 3 golds. So, your phrase “over and over and over again” shows total ignorance.

      However, indeed gymnastics has something to teach figure skating. Namely, in both sports the majority of best coaches in the World are Russians, most of whom went abroad in the 1990s when Russia became poor due to the transition period. Now that Russia is becoming wealthier while USA is becoming poorer, they are all coming back. Russia won in gymnastics because its famous coach – Alexandrov – returned from USA to Russia after 14 years. Most figure skating coaches are also coming back. So, very soon Russia will be once again winning 3 out of 4 Olympic golds, just like it did in 1992, 1994, 1998 and 2006.

  6. Observers now say that Gakayev is in a position to recruit the young Chechens who have long opposed Kadryrov’s autocratic rule, but who never had much sympathy for a pan-Caucasian emirate. “This creates the potential for a new kind of insurgency that is directly against Kadyrov, against his authority and control over Chechnya,” says Baev.

    So far Kadyrov has dismissed this threat, as have his backers in Moscow. Russia’s Interior Minister, Rashid Nurgaliev, whose visit to Grozny coincided with Tuesday’s attack on the parliament, struggled to stay calm as he addressed the chamber afterward. “Here, there is security and stability,” he proclaimed, a statement that could hardly seem convincing when clean-up crews were at that very moment wiping blood from the walls of parliament’s courtyard.


    • Is this a beach volleyball? Robert-Andrew-Robert-Andrew-Robert-Andrew and then again Robert.

      • Manfred Steifschwanz

        It’s either that, or else one could compare it to a “conversation” in the nearest park between two down-and-out trashbags. Not even Our Dear Beloved Kim Zigfeld seems to be that interested for the time being.

        • No Stiffy, that would be a conversation between yourself ans CaSSasa.

          A conversation between to retarded KGB hangovers on a park bench in the Urals somwhere with Stalin in the name…..

          • Manfred Steifschwanz

            That’s “two” and “somewhere”, mon pétit.

            My and casasa’s judgements about what’s going on here have appreciably more substance than does yours. Robert and yourself are posting here all day long, spouting the same mindless tripe forever.

            • Lets see, Robert and I post factually based and documented comments, you blow hot air all day.

              Of course, Russophiles are full of BS, tripe, and mindless drivel.

              You are no exception.

            • BTW, I feel the “mon pétit” epithet fits Andrew much better than “sunshine”. After all, he’s not bright enough for the latter.

              So, Andrew, you’re “mon pétit” from now on.

  7. About this “parliament” today:

    United Russia could win 120% of seats in Chechen parliament

    If United Russia needed to win 115-120 per cent of the votes for the Chechen parliamentary elections then that’s just what they’d win, claims parliament speaker Dukuvakha Abdurakhmanov.

  8. Details of the “parliament” raid emerging:
