The Tsarist Russia did not pay much attention to the needs and desires of the people who lived in the region and hoped to Russianize them. Russia lost control over Caucasus for a short period of time after the communist revolution in 1917 but regained control again in 1920s. The Bolshevik rule prevailed from 1920 to 1991 and distinguished itself with divide-and-rule policies, exiles and executions. Russian control over former Soviet republics weakened with the end of Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. As the economic downfall continued, some regions in Russian Federation such as Chechnya also claimed their sovereignty form Russia.
During this endeavor, the Russian encountered war like people that resided in the Caucasus Mountains. In resisting the Russian invaders, the Chechens found something to rally under. It is vital to note that prior to this, the Chechen people did not exist as a single type of nationality; they were a different number of clans, religious groups, etc that came together in a tradition of resistance that is still going on over 200... ... middle of paper ... ...an be concluded that while both wars in Chechnya came about in different ways, the causes were more or less the same in both conflicts; prior history between the two peoples, incompetent political and economic leadership and unrealistic desires of independence on the part of Chechens caused these conflicts to escalate. Although time has passed between the start of the first Chechen war, violence still continues to plague the region. Until both sides can see past there bloody history and come to a compromise, it is very likely that the toll will grow on both sides.
This caused a number of problems, Soviets took control of large areas to pursue their own policies, Volga Tatars and Bashkis set up republics. The Russian civil war was fought by many to gain self-government and by others who wanted to keep a unified Russian empire. The Bolsheviks harsh control of Russia had made them many enemies, in the form of political opposition. Many of these opposing groups organised armed revolts against the communists; however, it was not just within Russia that the Bolsheviks had opposition. The allies strongly opposed Bolshevik control of Russia.
U.S.A and the Borderlands. There has been tons of contentions and conflicts in the second largest country in europe and while the news presents us all these ideas about what going there, the truth, as it always is, is much more complex. The recent turmoil in the Ukraine has brought up a lot of issues remembered in the cold war. Russia Annexing the crimean peninsula from the Ukraine scaring western powers, specifically the United States, into the old policy of Soviet containment and using any means to put negatives towards the “eastern block” preventing the spread of its influence.

i Together with discontent in the populace, and its manifestations (strikes, revolutionary activity, and assassinations), I believe War invariably changed the Russian political system. I believe war had an impact for several reasons. Throughout the period described Russia took part in three wars, in which they were crushed. Firstly, when a country fails in war, some would see it as being a sign that the country is less advanced in general. Firstly, the realisation that one's country was backward and prone to invasion threatened the Tsar's power, which then induced political change.
Importantly, the conflict between Russia and Chechnya created a rift which resulted in deadly consequences in those countries. History. In the North Caucasus, Chechens endured centuries of conquests by Russian, which they contended through resistance.

Thus, the war between Kazakhs and Junghars was unjust as it misused the elements of such principles. Junghars failed to have proper authority, proper cause and proper intent – the elements of jus ad bellum. Additionally, they misused the elements of jus in bello, in particular proportionality and discrimination.

Further difficulties during this period were caused by Russia's long term long problems, particularly the vast land area and a high percentage of distinct ethnic minorities causing a lack of cohesion and sense of national identity.
