Vladimir Putin marked the Day of Federal Security Service in Gudermes, a Chechen town that gained publicity during the active military actions on suppressing terrorism and separatism. A strategically important meeting of the Russian government dedicated to the development of North Caucasus was held there. The matter became relevant after a call-in show when PM had to account for paying subsidies to the Caucasus. In Gudermes, Putin explained why Russia needs to financially support Chechnya and the rest of republics.
Gudermes-2000 and Gudermes-2012 are two different towns. Ramzan Kadyrov has revived not only Grozny after the war but regional centers as well. It took over 100 billion Russian rubles but it was worth it. The fact was highlighted by PM Vladimir Putin at the start of the Gudermes meeting 12 years later.
"Today, Grozny has turned into a marvelous city due to the Chechen people's industry and the assistance of the federal center... That's a good result of work over the past years, I mean, restoration of Grozny and not only Grozny but other localities, as well as the economy of Chechnya and the rest of the North Caucasus", - Putin praised the people and the government of the republic, thus denying an old stereotype about the Chechen's laziness.
Chechen people have been known for their love of twiddling thumbs even in the Soviet years, despite an article about vagrancy of the Criminal Code. The Chechen were not eager to join the kolkhoz but gladly went to other USSR regions to do pick-up work as builders and odd hands.
Today, unemployment in the North-Caucasian republics has got objective reasons, such as industrial and agricultural decay alongside with traditionally high birthrate, high percentage of the young and density of the population. According to official statistics, 27 percent of people in Chechnya are employable, as well as about one half of the population of Ingushetia. If this army is not employed it will flow into other regions of Russia and, having failed to find a job, will join the bandit underground.
