Ramzan Kadyrov feels tight in Chechnya2012-09-10 17:34
Chechnya's territorial claims to Ingushetia have recently overshadowed even such regular for the North Caucasus topic as terrorist attacks. Presidential envoy to the Southern Federal District Alexander Khloponin aslo decided to interfere into the situation. Ingush expert Shamil Ozdoev told GTimes about how in Ingushetia they look at the attempt territorial redistribution.
"Well, at last the presidential envoy asked Ramzan Kadyrov and Yunus-Bek Yevkurov to cease the protracted quarrel which has grown into Kadyrov's territorial claims to Ingushetia. However, it is unknown what did Khloponin do during the conflict between Yevkurov and Kadyrov. And the commissions that "will talk to each other, agree, discuss, think what documents will be taken as a basis" is nothing more than envoy's tribute to Kadyrov's ungovernable temper, a kind of attempt to sweeten the bitter pill.
A question arises why Khloponin, not Putin, has personally brought Kadyrov down a peg or two (and Khloponin's goal was to stop exactly the head of Chechnya, the Ingush leader has no claims). Kadyrov has crossed the line. If Putin personally speak to the regional leader, encroaching on the basis of state-territorial structure of the country, this shows the Kremlin's willingness to discuss this topic. Therefore, they have sent an official, whose responsibility includes the establishment of order in the region, but no more.
Yunus-Bek Yevkurov has once closed the question of Ingushetia's territorial claims to the Prigorodniy District of North Ossetia, by adopting the law on local self-government. Despite the damage to his authority in the country, since the vast majority of Ingushs considered this an act of betrayal, he has found the strength to acknowledge the Prigorodniy District an integral part of North Ossetia. Naturally, this was not done on his own initiative - he fulfilled the order from center, willing not to have a smoldering conflict in the border region.
And Ramzan Kadyrov decided to try luck again. The first attempt took place in 2006. Chairman of the Chechen Parliament Dukvakha Abdurakhmanov initiated the unification of Chechnya, Dagestan and Ingushetia into a single entity. The Kremlin has not given the go-ahead to this initiative.
But Kadyrov, apparently, feels tight in Chechnya. Towns and villages are rebuilt, militants were driven into the woods and appear from there extremely rare, because for them it is usually the way to one end. Political field of the republic was also cleansed - all competitors are either dead or in exile. The only available space for future achievement is Ingushetia.
Question of belonging of the two regions is just casus belli. Kadyrov needs the entire country, the more so that in the case of the transfer of the required land to him, only one small area remains from Ingushetia, which actually means the elimination of the country. But most importantly is not the territory, but the fact that there are militants, whose corpses can be converted into evidence of his relevance. Against the background of activization of Salafist underground in Dagestan, the leadership of which is seriously discussing the possibility of bringing the army to fight the militants, Ramzan will be able to prove the effectiveness of his methods of the destruction of the underground on example of Ingushetia.
