RFE/RL: MOSCOW SAID PLANNING TO DECLARE CHECHEN WAR OVER
i really look forward to such a declaration. However,
the words themselves mean absolutely nothing since it
was supposed to be over by January 2000 in the first
place. putinites can very substantially prove to the
world that the war is over by doing the following:
1. Proudly marching all military personnel out of
Chechnya back to heir families
2. Allowing wide access to humanitarian and other
organizations throughout the republic
3. Not forcing refugees to return and showing the
world that are really voluntarilly doing so
4. Removing marauding blockposts from the roads
5. Punishing those involved in straight-out cases,
6. Starting to rebuild Grozny and other locations
7. Starting to give social security and unemployment
payments throughout the republic
Until the do all of these, the war is not over. The
fact that they are not going to do these any time soon
shows that the war hasn't even reached its climax yet.
That's why putinites are doing all they can to make
life impossible not only for Chechen defenders but
also for kids, women, and the elderly.

- So the russians are going to declare the war over on May 15th? Reminds
me a little of how Nixon got the US out of Vietnam - declared that he
had won and then ran like hell!
