Republic of Ichkeria and the Caucasus Emirate have sought independence from Russia. Tony Wood, ''Chechnya: the Case for Independence'', p. 61 The first recordings of Chechen music were made by an exiled member of the Decembrist society in the middle of the 19th century. Composer A.A.Davidenko visited villages of Chechnya in the 1920s and made recordings of a number of historical, ritual, love and dance tunes. Thirty arrangements of Chechen folk tunes were published, in one volume, in Moscow, 1926. Demographics The majority of Muslims in Russia adhere to the Sunni branch of Islam. About 5% are Shi'a Muslims. In a few areas, notably Dagestan and Chechnya, there is a tradition of Sunni Sufism, which is represented by Naqshbandi and Shadhili schools, whose spiritual master Shaykh Said Afandi al-Chirkawi receives hundreds of visitor daily.

The fierce anticommunist journalism of ''Tygodnik Solidarność'' (1994, # 41) and supporting the statement of the editorial office of ''Arka (Arka (magazine))'' magazine about the decommunisation of the elites stoked the controversy among Herbert’s opposition friends. He praised the Cold War anti-communist spy Colonel Ryszard Kukliński in an open letter to then president Lech Wałęsa in 1994, and later also expressed support for the Chechen Dzjochar Dudajev. 'A Letter to President Dzhokar Dudayev'. In: ''Tygodnik Solidarność'', No. 2 (330), 13 January 1995. See External links. He also organized the financial aid for Chechnya. This wasn’t his only initiative. Earlier in an open letter to U.S. President George H. W. Bush he criticized the indifference towards the situation of Kurds. What is more, he supported the investigation of Liga Republikańska (Republican League) in the case of assassination of Stanisław Pyjas and advocated revealing the UB (Office of Security) files from 1956. In 1994 in the interview for ''Tygodnik Solidarność'' he criticized not only the Round Table Agreement (Polish Round Table Agreement) and the politics of the Third Polish Republic (III Rzeczpospolita), but also accused some prominent public figures, such as Czesław Miłosz and Adam Michnik as being personally responsible for the country's difficulties. 'Mr. Cogito's Duels: A Conversation with Anna Poppek and Andrzej Gelberg'. In: ''Tygodnik Solidarność'', No. 46 (321), 11 November 1994. See External links. These controversial opinions prompted counter-polemics that would continue even after Herbert’s death. This conflict has its roots in different judgments on the communist regime in Poland at the time of the People’s Republic of Poland. Britain and France are still bogged down in western Germany, while Confederate newspapers report that the Russians are driving on Warsaw. Partisan resistance is a large problem for both sides: Britain contends with Irish rebellion, Russia fights Jews, Finns, Chechens (Chechnya) and Azerbaijanis, while Austria-Hungary bleeds from (amongst others) Serb, Bosnian, and Romanian rebels, with people bombs killing several prominent military leaders. Since early 2000s, Kitovani has lived in Moscow from where he harshly criticized the Shevardnadze government on several occasions. In February 2002, he responded scandalously to the mysterious suicide of Nugzar Sajaia, Shevardnadze’s close ally and an influential Chairman of Georgia’s National Security Council (National Security Council of Georgia), making allegations that Sajaia was a homosexual and had ordered the 2001 murder of journalist Giorgi Sanaia. Irakly Areshidze, Nugzar Sajaia, Shevardnadze’s closest confidant, commits suicide. ''Central Asian-Caucasus Institute Analyst'', February 27, 2002. Later that year, Kitovani accused Shevardnadze of being behind the 2002 assassination of Kakhi Asatiani, a businessman and former soccer star.

''Eurasianet'', January 6, 2003. He further claimed that Russian General Gennady Shpigun, abducted and killed in Chechnya in 1999 2000, was in fact held captive and put to death in Pankisi, with the body then taken to southern Chechnya.

In 1994, outraged by what she called “genocide of the Chechen people”, Bonner resigned from Yeltsin's Human Rights Commission and was an outspoken opponent to Russian armed involvement in Chechnya and critical of the Kremlin for allegedly returning to KGB-style authoritarianism under Vladimir Putin. She was also critical of the international "quartet" two-state solution (Road map for peace) to the Israel-Palestinian conflict and has expressed fears about the rise of anti-semitism in Europe.

As with many other genres, Canadian television comedy also frequently plays with the topic of Canada's relationship with the United States (Canada-United States relations). Mercer turned another ''22 Minutes'' segment, ''Talking to Americans'', into a 2001 television special, which was a ratings smash. In ''Talking to Americans'', Mercer, in his ''22 Minutes'' guise as reporter "J.B.
