Chapter Summary

The dissolution of the Soviet Union has resulted in many changes in the North Caucasus. All entities in the North Caucasus were lifted to Republic status within the Russian Federation. Since the beginning of the 21st century one of the important issues for the Russian government has been the removing of the Presidents in exile, who embody the opposition in Chechnya against the Russians. Relations between NGO's and the Russian government are difficult. In the summer of 2006 President Putin adopted a law that restricted the activities of foreign NGO's in Russia, and could ban them altogether. The NGO's saw this as a serious setback in the transition process from communism to democracy for the Russian Federation. On the other hand, President Putin made this decision because he felt that other states had increased their influence on Russian society, which he wanted to curb through this decision.
