Chechnya's forgotten war

Part - 2

Ramzan Kadyrov, Chechnya's Moscow-backed president, is reconstructing the country with billions of dollars in aid from the Kremlin. But human rights groups accuse Kadyrov of creating a totalitarian state within a state where officials allegedly use kidnapping, torture and extrajudicial killings against opponents of his government and political observers say his methods are fuelling a simmering Islamic insurgency. We ask: Is Chechnya heading toward another conflict and what impact will this have on Russia's stability?
