Earlier this year, CIR correspondent Anna Badkhen traveled from Moscow to Grozny to report on the simmering insurgency and human rights violations that continue to haunt Chechnya. Her reporting trip was supported in part by CIR’s Dick Goldensohn Fund.

Badhken writes about her reporting trip in The New Republic.
