(1-10) (11-20) (21-30) (31-40) (41-50)
IN ENGLISH Hello Sochi!
 April 30th 2010 Prague Watchdog / Usam Baysayev · ALSO AVAILABLE IN: RUSSIAN 
It turns out that there never was any decades-long resistance by the mountain tribes, that their villages were never burned down, they were never driven out by force, and General Zass with his trunkloads of Circassian skulls never existed.
IN ENGLISH Zero casualties
 April 15th 2010 Prague Watchdog / German Sadulayev · ALSO AVAILABLE IN: RUSSIAN 
The commanders tried to minimize losses among Russian soldiers and officers. This led to the bombing and shelling, the tactic of not tackling the enemy head-on, but of blockading it and destroying it remotely. Along with casual spectators.
IN ENGLISH The list is incomplete
 April 8th 2010 Prague Watchdog / Usam Baysayev · ALSO AVAILABLE IN: RUSSIAN 
The hallmark of a terrorist act is violence directed against those who cannot defend themselves, and the securing of certain preferences by means of it.
IN ENGLISH A naive killer
 March 22nd 2010 Prague Watchdog / Magomed Toriyev · ALSO AVAILABLE IN: RUSSIAN 
Ibrahim Yevloyev is an Ingush, and all his efforts to evade the mountain law by which the Ingush have lived for a thousand years will ultimately bring no benefit either to himself or to his relatives.
IN ENGLISH Killing the will for justice
 March 12th 2010 Prague Watchdog / Usam Baysayev · ALSO AVAILABLE IN: RUSSIAN 
Now the question is: will the "special unit" whose creation was announced by Alexander Bastrykin in Grozny yesterday be allowed to investigate cases in accordance with the law, without regard for politics?
IN ENGLISH The day of hatred
 February 24th 2010 Prague Watchdog / German Sadulayev · ALSO AVAILABLE IN: RUSSIAN 
Absolute power is sustained by irrational fear. It must periodically surprise and suppress its subjects by manifestations of infinite cruelty.
IN ENGLISH Arshty
 February 18th 2010 Prague Watchdog / Usam Baysayev · ALSO AVAILABLE IN: RUSSIAN 
These statements and others give a clear idea of the aim of the governments of all the republics of the North Caucasus today. Their function is mainly to provide a cover for the interests of the Russian security agencies.
IN ENGLISH Three Chechens
 February 11th 2010 Prague Watchdog / German Sadulayev · ALSO AVAILABLE IN: RUSSIAN 
The Chechen state of "Ichkeria" had little chance of survival. In the aggressive environment of Russia's presence in the Caucasus, that chance grew more slender with each passing month, until it came to nothing.
IN ENGLISH Caucasus 2012 (part 2)
 January 29th 2010 Prague Watchdog / German Sadulayev · ALSO AVAILABLE IN: RUSSIAN 
Specific situations are more difficult. If a man puts on a suicide belt and blows himself up at a crowded bus stop, then for what sort of faith and truth did he kill all those people?
IN ENGLISH Bloodied but unbowed
 January 24th 2010 Prague Watchdog / Usam Baysayev · ALSO AVAILABLE IN: RUSSIAN 
The scheme worked until the Chechens found their way into it. They recognized neither "grandfathers" nor "spirits", nor even the officers, sometimes.
