Alleged genocide issue of ethnic Russians in Chechnya in the beginning of 1990s

My friend and former journalist colleague Timur Aliev of Grozny wrote a piece on the widespread views among Russians that Chechens were consciously wiping out ethnic Russian population out of Chechnya after separatist regime came to power. Timur argues that this view has little in common with what happened in Chechnya in reality. In fact, according to Timur, these rumours have been used in order to justify starting the war in Chechnya.
