PostSubject: The Chechen Republic   Sun Jun 19, 2011 7:46 am

The Chechen Republic (play /ˈtʃɛtʃɨn/; Russian: Чече́нская Респу́блика, Chechenskaya Respublika; Chechen: Нохчийн Республика, Noxiyn Respublika), or, informally, Chechnya ( /ˈtʃɛtʃniə/; Russian: Чечня́, Chechnya; Chechen: Нохчийчоь, Noxiy), sometimes referred to as Ichkeria, Chechenistan, Chechnia, Chechenia, or Noxiyn, is a federal subject of Russia (a republic). It is located in the southeastern part of Europe in the Northern Caucasus mountains. The Chechen Republic has a population of almost 1.3 million (2010) and its capital is Grozny.

After the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, the Chechen-Ingush ASSR was split into two: the Republic of Ingushetia and the Chechen Republic. The latter proclaimed the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria, which sought independence. Following the First Chechen War with Russia, Chechnya gained de facto independence as the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria. Russian federal control was restored during the Second Chechen War. Since then there has been a systematic reconstruction and rebuilding process, though sporadic fighting continues in the mountains and southern regions of the republic.
