Abstract

The abuses of Chechen civilians by Russian federal forces and pro-Kremlin Chechen security forces have once again attracted international attention. This article discusses some of the legal and social difficulties that make the prosecution of disappearances and other abuses against Chechen civilians virtually impossible under the rubric of crimes against humanity in Russian domestic courts. Such prosecutions are imperative, however, if the goal is to truly "normalize" the situation in Chechnya and to prevent the spread of terrorist activity within and outside of the Chechen borders.
