Violence in the North Caucasus
May 14, 2009
Violence in Russia’s North Caucasus is on the rise. Since January 2004, CSIS has tracked, almost daily, violent incidents occurring in the North Caucasus. This new report, assembled by our staff, draws on our database. In particular, the report illustrates the rise in incidents during Winter/Spring 2009. As a new feature, this report is available in video format with audio commentary.
The Human Rights and Security Initiative thanks past and present staff members for their work on this collective endeavor, especially Project Consultant Matthew Malarkey for his dedication to the project. We plan to release an additional report in August 2009.
