Hundreds of Chechens fled villages for refugee camps just across the border in Ingushetia. The refugees said Russian police were searching for those responsible for a bombing on July 2nd that killed five policemen. Hundreds were arrested and interrogates, and all but 40 men were later released. Many of the rebels are part time, living in nearby villages. The police terrorize the villagers to try and discourage rebel attacks. Some of those arrested are severely beaten and others are killed. Elsewhere in Chechnya, three Russian policemen and three rebels were killed in several incidents.

beggar Help Keep Us Online!
 

Yep, we have been forced to beg for your support. We want our readers to have a good experience while they are here. We avoid video ads and populating the pages with more than three ads unlike other sites, but this has a consequence for us -- lower revenues. We are bringing in a third of the revenue we brought in just a few years ago. We are not quite homeless yet, but we need your support to keep going. There are three ways you can help:

  1. Make sure you spread the word about us. Two ways to do that are to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
  2. Subscribe to our daily newsletter. We’ll send the news to your email box, and you don’t have to come to the site unless you want to read columns or see photos.
  3. You can contribute to the health of StrategyPage. A contribution is not a donation that you can deduct at tax time, but a form of crowdfunding. We store none of your information when you contribute..

Drake appreciates any help you can give him.
