Russia: October 29, 2003


While Russia would like to settle the rebellion in Chechnya, the inability, so far, of the rebels to agree on terms, has delayed peace. The major problem on the rebel side is inability to guarantee any peace deal. Several of the many rebel  factions are opposed to any peace.

Other rebel groups are basically criminal gangs that are not willing to give up their criminal ways.
