Russia: End of Amnesty in Chechnya

David McDuff of A Step At A Time translates an article on Chechnya: “Today (January 15) marks the end of the amnesty for members of armed groups and federal servicemen which was declared by the Russian State Duma in September 2006. According to the data of the various law enforcement bodies, from 470 to 546 guerrillas turned themselves in during the amnesty. The oldest was aged 75, and the youngest 16.”
