1864, Chechens surrendered to Russia. During Russia's quest for national expansion,
Russia desired the lands in the Caucasus region and fought against and conquered the
people in the mountainous area. These people fought back for their independence and
freedom. Unfortunately, mother Russia was too strong, and she conquered and controlled

    Russian Treaty Thing To most students and a good part of the rest of American society, the issues which have come to surface and shed blood over miles of terrain are intricate and internal, issues which can’t be put to rest by signing a piece of paper or so called treaty.
