In both stories, the wolf, wandering through the woods, comes on Little Red and asks where she is going. When Little Red responds that she is going to visit her sick grandmother, the wolf distracts her with the suggestion that she should pick some flowers so that he can get to her grandmother?s house first. The wolf arrives at Little Red?s grandmother?s house before Little Red and disguises his voice in order to be let in. When he is let into the house, he promptly devours the grandmother and disguises himself in her clothes in order to eat Little Red as well. At this point, the two narratives diverge.

The Russian government managed to keep its control of all states apart from Chechnya, which, under the new president Dzhokhar Dudayev, declared independence in October 1991. The Russian Government did not approve this and President Yeltsin declared war against the newborn regime in 1994. Yeltsin feared that if they had not declared war the other Caucasus states may have followed suit, to prevent this they preferred to curb it at the out set. The second Chechen war, which began in September 1999, was a result of the actions taken by Russia in the first war and was a product of the same policies. The fight for independence for Chechnya has been ongoing since the Bolshevik Revolution and is one that will be fought well into the future if something is not done about it now.
So great is the hatred and memories of what the Russians had done to the Chechens that when Russia and Communism finally collapsed the people of Chechnya like many other Republics joyfully declared their independence from ethnic Russia.

The invasion culminated a series of failed coups against Dudayev that had been orchestrated by the office of Russian President Boris Yeltsin. However, this invasion has quickly degenerated into a military-political quagmire.

I learned that they had success because revolutionaries sought after a common goal, the communist manifesto. Although the new communist reign seemed good for a while, eventually certain members of society edged their way to the top of the pyramid, negating the communist manifesto.

Communism affected Russia in many ways, some good, many bad. Russia had an increasingly rough time trying to restore itself as a proud nation. Through reforms and many other things Russia has finally restored itself as a powerful nation.
Russia As a country, Russia has been through many different government systems. In the very beginning, Russia was ruled by the autocratic Tsars. As the country went through revolutions and wars, the ideologies of the people and the governments began to change. Even though outwardly it may seem that Russia has progressed from the autocratic form to a rather democratic form, many people do not agree. In order to analyze this transition in more detail, history of the country should be discussed briefly.
As the economic downfall continued, some regions in Russian Federation such as Chechnya also claimed their sovereignty form Russia. Russia saw this as a threat to its territorial integrity.
