Actions of militants in Chechnya are inseparably linked to international terrorist organizations, the largest of which is Al-Qaeda of Osama bin-Laden.
In the opinion of Spanish political science Professor Fernandez Reinarez of the United Nations anti-terror department, Chechnya sets an example of how international terrorist organizations promote the conversion of movements born under nationalist slogans into those with Islamic fundamentalist goals, providing them with finance and experienced militants.
The professor has made a press publication in connection with the recent act of a suicide terrorist in Mozdok /North Ossetia, a constituent republic of the Russian Federation/. He says it is the job of the selfsame "global" terrorist forces, who have recently staged similar bloody acts with the involvement of kamikaze in Casablanca in Morocco and Al Riyadh.
After a trip to Russia, Polish writer Maya Wolny concluded that the West did not even have a close idea of how things really were in the Russian Federation.
