Chechen children to vacation in sanatoriums of Caucasus and Crimea
Around 27,000 children from Chechnya will spend time in health- improving camps of the North Caucasus, as well as on the Black Sea coast of the Crimean peninsula.
About 485 million rubles including 404 million rubles from the state budget have been allocated for the campaign.
The majority of children to go to the Caucasus and Crimea are orphans, children with one parent, children from large and poor families as well as disabled children.

Citizens of the Crimea Breathe Easy! Ramzan Kadyrov Pledges Humanitarian Assistance
I know, I know, where have I been all your life? Only my favorite golden-gun wielding wedding enthusiast, Ramzan Kadyrov of Chechnya could lure me back to Red Scare! Amidst the serious crisis taking shape in Ukraine, Ramzan Kadyrov has graciously come forth and pledged humanitarian aid and assistance to the downtrodden people of Crimea. In what is sure to win him the Nobel Peace Prize, known humanitarian Kadyrov, has volunteered to protect Chechen interests in Ukraine. RFE/RL reports that Kadyrov accuses “nationalists of all descriptions” of depriving Chechen citizens living in Ukraine of their homes and business. Moreover, he claims that “we shall not allow Chechens to be offended, wherever they happen to live.” I bet those Chechens that probably fled for their lives to Ukraine are thrilled to hear Ramzan, friend of democracy and Gerard Depardieu, is throwing down his glove and preventing “offense” of Chechens worldwide!
Bless this post.

“Beria’s records indicate that by 11 A.M. on that day, 94,741 individuals had been moved from various population centers, a number that grew to 333,739 on the following day. There were problems only in certain mountainous regions, the result of heavy snowfall. On 25 February the eighty-sixth convoy loaded with special settlers—Chechens, Ingush, and members of other nationalities living in the republic who had been seized in the course of the operation—set off.
The sources attest, however, that the mission did not proceed without certain atrocities on the part of those in charge. Anyone who made even the slightest attempt to resist was severely punished. K. Timishev, staff secretary of the OKPB, reported on the grievous reprisals inflicted on the inhabitants of Peshkhoevskoe, Nashkhoi, Siuzhi, and other villages. Many special settlers were simply burned to death.”

IMPORTANT! Chechen youths in Grozny are protesting!
Chechen youngsters in Grozny came out on the streets to remind the pro-Russian government of the day when Chechens were deported by the Russians. Chechen youngsters started shouting out “Free Chechnya!” “We won’t forget!” “We won’t forgive!” “No to occupation!”
In about 5 minutes Kadyrovists arrived and started fighting with youths. Youngsters started fighting back and therefore over ten people from both sides are injured and hospitalized.
We will inform you more about this shortly…

On February 23, 1944, Soviet Russia’s leader, Joseph Stalin, ordered the genocide and deportation of the entire Chechen-Ingush nation.
Men, women and children were loaded into cattle cars and endured a long, cruel journey to Siberia and Kazakhstan. Almost half of the population died as a result.
Let us commemorate this day and vow to never forget the injustice the Chechen and Ingush people faced that day.
Today marks the 70th anniversary and serves as a testament to the unbreakable Waynakh spirit.
