I took photos of the 2nd war in Chechnya and all the subsequent dramatic events in the North Caucasus from 1999 to 2010. 
I did not choose sides and took pictures everywhere I could, trying to get as close as possible to events. 

I became convinced that the gulf between the Caucasus and Russia is still too great and Russians do not understand the people who live in the Caucasus and do not acknowledge their complex culture. 

Sadly, it would be very hard to forget the mutual humiliation and pain, to erase the hatred and to fill it with respect for each other.
