Russian Expert to Discuss Chechnya at KSU


(Image credit:

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — With the Boston Marathon bombings focusing attention on Chechnya, a Kansas State University professor wants to help the public understand the southern Russian province. Russian military history expert David Stone is speaking at 5:30 pm Thursday in Eisenhower Hall. He'll discuss the origins of the Chechen conflict and the Russian wars in Chechnya. He'll also touch on ongoing violence in Chechnya and surrounding regions of the Caucasus, and the increasing role of radical Islam in the conflict. Bombing suspects Tamerlan Tsarnaev and his brother, Dzhokhar, emigrated to the U.S. about a decade ago from Dagestan. The Russian republic has become an epicenter of the Islamic insurgency that spilled over from the region of Chechnya. Stone wrote "A Military History of Russia: From Ivan the Terrible to the War in Chechnya."
