 CDI Russia Weekly #204 - United Nations Human Rights Commission, Chechnya
The argument is a quibble because, without in any way diminishing the suffering of the Palestinian population and without in any way lessening the condemnation of Ariel Sharon's policy, it has to be stated that the situation in Chechnya is increasingly tragic with every day that passes.
In the middle of April the NGO Human Rights Watch mentioned the disappearance of 87 people in Groznyy since the start of the year: abducted for ransom by the Russian forces or found dead, executed with a bullet fired at point-blank range, the body often showing signs of torture.
The Russian forces are bent on terrorizing in order to subjugate a people who have already undergone an ordeal: perhaps 150,000 dead since the last offensive, that of 1999, while only 300,000 to 400,000 Chechens out of a population of 1 million before the war are said still to be living inside the country.

The Chechen capital Groznyy has been renamed Dzhokhar in commemoration of the late Chechen separatist leader Dzhokhar Dudayev, the Russian news agency Interfax reported.

 The Cinematheque - Canonical Reviews / Ivan Groznyy I & II   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-23)
Ivan Groznyy I & II (Ivan the Terrible, Parts I & II) (a third part was supposedly lost to the shadows of the Kremlin after the death of the auteur in 1948) have become the ornamental zenith of Eisenstein's twenty-one year career.
And it was Stalin's already-mentioned tyrannicalness that led to Part Two being banned in The Soviet Union upon its completion in 1945 - not shown in public until 1958, with Khruschev's more lenient policies coming into effect upon the death of Stalin.
In fact, I believe Potemkin to be a greater film than Ivan, but it is in its grandiosity that Ivan the Terrible has become the crowning jewell in the crown of Sergei Eisenstein's much too truncated career.
