This report from Ingushetia is good written and haunting, allthough the headline "Why the Russians will loose the Caucasus" is not really answered and filled with some vague speculations.
I liked the sharp observations on the state of agony of officials and simple citizens of the Northern Caucasus and the ability of the author to balance facts with concernment. The Caucasus, Ingushetia, the kindness of its people and the harshness and absurdity of its daily life seems to make the stranger very fast involved and even sympathizing. I personally hope Martin Kaul will soon come back here again and write more. Those unsolved problems can not get enough publicity. A small mistake: Ingushetia is to the west of Chechnya.
