Ramzan's Kadyrovtsky Militia, Grozny, 2006

Taken on 2006-03-22

Kadyrovtsy militants during constitution day in Chechnya, Russian Federation. Kadyrovtsy (Russian: Кадыровцы, Kadyrovcy, literally "Kadyrov's followers") also Kadyrovites, is a term used by the population of Chechnya, as well as members of the groups themselves, for former members of the paramilitary units of the former pro-Moscow President of the Chechen Republic Akhmad Kadyrov, headed by his son and the current President Ramzan Kadyrov. Kadyrovites, thousands of personally devoted armed men (estimated at around 5,000), including many former rebels from the First and Second Chechen Wars, have been accused of serious human rights abuses. Human rights activists working in Chechnya have said the group has been involved in kidnapping, torture and murder to cement Kadyrov's rule; reportedly, this is the group now most feared by Chechnya’s civilian population.

Taken on 2000-03-01

Russian forces secure the scene of the deadly Zhani-Vedeno ambush. The Zhani-Vedeno ambush took place on March 29, 2000, when a mechanized column of Russian Interior Ministry troops was ambushed in the southern Vedensky District of Chechnya, and destroyed by the largely Dagestani force of multinational mujahideen who fought on Chechen separatist side under Arab commander Ibn al-Khattab and were led by Abu Quteiba, a field commander for the Islamic International Brigade. As the result of the attack on the convoy and on Russian relief forces, scores of Russian special police and paramilitary troops were killed or captured. Nine OMON officers were taken hostage and executed soon after Russian command refused to swap them for the arrested military officer Yuri Budanov.
