#fallofthesovietunion Chechen separatists are shown being jubilant while celebrating the pullout of Soviet troops from the Muslim republic. Grozny, Chechen-Ingush ASSR, Soviet Union. November 14th 1991. Chechnya had been a part of Russia since 1859, and after the Russian Revolution in 1917 they willingly stayed and became a part of the newly formed Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. In the 1930's, many Ukranians had fled the Ukraine and went to Chechnya during the Holodomor, the famine caused by Soviet authorities and Joseph Stalin that killed millions. The Soviet government warned Chechnya not to take in the Ukranians, but they went against the threat and as a result many Ukranians survived the famine by moving to Chechnya. During World War II, part of Chechnya was occupied by Nazi Germany, and over 40,000 Chechens had fought in the Red Army. A Russification process occured during the late 40's and the 50's, with the Russian language becoming standard and many Chechen names being replaced with Russian ones. For the next forty years, Chechnya would be a part of the USSR, but on November 26th 1990 a declaration of sovereignty was made by the Chechen government, but the Soviet and Russian governments both said that Chechnya had never been an independent entity, so they did not recognize the declaration. However they did pull out troops in the year after. Chechnya would stay as a Republic of Russia, and the ethnic and political tension would result in the Wars in Chechnya, which became very bloody and very destructive for both sides, especially in the Chechen capital of Grozny, but had eventually succeeded in keeping Chechnya in the Russian Federation. To this day there is an insurgency by multiple Jihadist and militaristic factions, and terror groups such as Al Qaeda and ISIL have recently found small footholds in Chechnya.

Principal Hanson, tear down this wall! #ProspectConstruction #ClassicReagan #Gorbachev #RyanLochte #WadsWorld

Внучка первого и последнего президента СССР Ксения Горбачева @ksenia_gorbacheva уже давно переехала жить в Германию, хотя в России бывает очень часто. По словам Ксении в Берлине она и ее дочь Саша чувствуют себя очень спокойно и комфортно, а с момента рождения дочки, ее комфорт для Ксении важнее всего. «У меня было кесарево, я слышала как Саша первый раз заплакала и пока меня зашивали, и снимали какие-то показания датчиков - пульс, давление, мне положили ее на грудь, зарыдала я. Врачам пришлось меня успокаивать, чтобы наложить швы. Это были настоящие слезы счастья».

Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall. #reagan #gorbachev #berlinwall #tbs #ronaldreagan #ussr #russia

This house in Reykjavik was the venue for the Reykjavik Summit in 1986, the meeting between Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev which led to the end of the Cold War. Before that it served as the British Embassy in Iceland in the 1940s and 1950s and was also the first place in Iceland to make radio communications with the outside world in 1905.

Höfði house was built in 1909 from a kit shipped from Norway. Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev met at this house for the Reykjavik Summit in October of 1986. Though the talks broke down, a dialogue of peace was opened. The meeting is considered by many to be the beginning of the end of the Cold War. #DrawIceland

I own a piece of history. A chunk of the Berlin wall. This is such a cool piece to own. I'm a nerd for history so this was right up my alley.
Crazy to think after all the history we've witnessed we have someone running the country who wants to put up walls.😧 #berlin #berlinwall #teardownthiswall #gorbachev #westberlin #eastberlin #ronaldreagan #reagan #history #historynerd #peace #freedom #checkpointcharlie
