On international non-recognition of Russia’s occupation of the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria and condemnation of the genocide of the Chechen nation


Appeal by the Presidium of the Government of the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria, patriots and supporters of Ichkeria


The Presidium of the Government of the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria and the whole Chechen nation are grateful to all the democratic countries supporting the Chechens’ fight for freedom.

In the 1990s, just as in today’s Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine, the Kremlin regime invaded territory of the Chechen state that had just regained its independence under the leadership of Dzhokhar Dudayev. As result of the repeated military armed aggression and genocide of the Chechen people, Russia was able to occupy our country, and eventually install the Kremlin-controlled occupation regime based on the Kadyrov clan (this was made official on June 12, 2000). As of now, the systematic destruction of the Chechen nation has resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of our compatriots, and counting; tens of thousands of Chechens suffered inhuman torture in the Russia’s prisons and concentration camps. Many of us were forced to leave our Motherland.

We hereby pledge our utmost commitment in the battle against Putin’s regime that is being fought by Ukraine and the whole civilized world, and also unreservedly condemn Russia’s occupation of parts of Georgia and Moldova. We particularly condemn the collaborationism of the occupation regime in Chechenya. It has been a direct accomplice  not only in Russia’s aggression around the world but also in the Putin-directed crimes against the Chechen people (with some of these crimes being committed on the territories of the Western states).

Russia’s security services’ are obsessed with the idea of exterminating (both physically and by forced assimilation) the independent nations in the Northern Caucasus. Despite this, despite the Kremlin’s brutal pressure, Chechens will keep on fighting to liberate our country from the Russian occupiers.

Now more than ever, we need international support in this fight.

As per all above, we call on parliaments and leaders of the democratic states to declare their non-recognition of the Russia’s occupation of the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria, as well as their condemnation for the Russia-conducted genocide of the Chechen nation.

In so doing, the democratic countries of the world would do well by recognizing the following facts of historical and legal nature:

  • On Nov 25, 1990, the All-National Congress of Chechen people declared the state sovereignty of Chechenya (Noxçiyçö), fulfilling the Chechens’ natural right of self-determination.
  • The Chechen Republic (renamed as the “Chechen Republic of Ichkeria” as of Jan 16, 1994) gained its state independence after the dissolution of the USSR. Its Constitution, adopted by the parliament on Mar 12, 1992, designated Ichkeria as a “sovereign independent law-based state”.
  • Russia, in violation of international law and bilateral agreements, in particular the Treaty on Peace and Principles of Relations of May 12, 1997, waged two wars on the Chechen state (in 1994-1996, and again in 1999-2009) — wars clearly qualifying as a crime of aggression.
  • In the course of Russia’s aggression on the territory of Ichkeria, Russian forces committed a multitude of international crimes, resulting in the genocidal mass extermination of the Chechen people. Those international crimes fall within the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court.

We reiterate that only a total criminal punishment of the Russia’s war criminals, for all the crimes they commited, recently and in the past, will save Europe and facilitate a real lasting peace in our world.

We also call on all Chechens and all the citizens of the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria, wherever they find themselves today, to join forces with compatriots and other people in an international public campaign in support of our initiative.

This is a way for the victory of justice and humanism.
