With Putin on the line, the future for Chechnya is again unsure. The fate of President Kadyrov in Chechnya is closely connected with Putin. But the Chechen mothers have other things to worry about than politics. Their children are much more important.
They lost parents, brothers, husbands, daughters, and sons because of the Chechen war. Their houses were bombed, their cities destroyed. They had to leave their country to find fortune in Moscow. They are called "Black Asses," their children "criminal," and their grandchildren "terrorist." But the mothers from the war keep on fighting, for their only reason of existence: their children and grandchildren.
