    Dagestan’s Troubles Mount, Mirroring Its Torturous Terrain

    • Judith Latham, Maria Lipman
    • January 22, 2010
    • Voice of America

    The Republic of Dagestan is becoming increasingly unstable, partially caused by a Russian policy of neglect, appointing only leaders loyal to Moscow. Severe economic problems and radical Islam also contribute to the violence.

    Alexander Khloponin Named “Chief of the Caucasus”

    The appointment of Khloponin as envoy for the new North Caucasus Federal District is an attempt by Moscow to tackle growing instability in the region. But while Khloponin has strong business credentials, he lacks experience in federal governance.

    Is Russia Losing the Caucasus?

    2-Way Dialogue Once A Year

    Although Prime Minister Putin’s eighth annual call-in show was much livelier than the typical state television coverage of the government’s public policy, it will take much more than a yearly show to establish a genuine two-way dialogue between the government and the people.
