The Olympic Games that are to be held in Sochi, North Caucasus in 2014, are designed to be a manifestation of the reconstruction of Russia and it’s greatness under Putin. This is the region Putin has struggled to control since the fall of the Soviet Union. It was here Putin started his “unification” of Russia in 1999 through the second war in Chechnya.

Now, after almost 15 years have passed, the situation in North Caucasus is critical. The conflicts between different Russian forces and armed Islamist insurgent groups have become so violent that the situation in Dagestan must be characterized as a state of war. Chechnya is being held under Russian control by Ramzan Kadyrov’s iron fist, but the republic is less Russian than ever.
