In Armenia, for example, the Debed River, a tributary of the Kura River was highly polluted with copper and zinc discharged from the Alaverdi mine in Northeast Armenia.
However, the Kura river, being the major waterway in the South Caucasus region, has a high degree of international importance, in terms of both quantity and quality of water, since its basin covers five countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Turkey and Iran and the rivers and their tributaries there are abstracted for essential uses.
The rivers of the Kura basin are used for agriculture, domestic, industrial, and hydropower generation and recreation purposes.

The next assigned objective was Elchetovo, the "Gate to the Caucasus", a narrow gap between a mountain range and the Terek river.
This advance, like the one along the right bank of the Terek, was severely hampered by the difficult terrain (many small rivers had to be forded), minefields, heavy artillery barrages, as well as constant attacks by Soviet bombers and fighter bombers.

The Russian state was pursuing a "protracted and difficult expansion" against the "heathen of the mountains" and the Terekers -- as Cossacks "of the line" -- stood very much at the front of this expansion.
In this "edge habitat," the Russian state and Russian society were barely present and consequently the Terek Cossacks developed in ways that were shaped -- for better and for worse -- by the exigencies of life in a frontier environment.

 NEW SPECIES OF FRESHWATER FISH FROM THE IRANIAN COAST OF THE CASPIAN SEA
Although Berg (1949) reported occasional records of this species from the Volga River delta, penetrating through canals connecting the Volga River with rivers entering the Baltic Sea, and also Coad (1980) quoted its occasional catches in the south Caspian Sea, there were no confirmed records of eel in Iranian waters.
Kazancheev (1981) mentioned only the first two rivers entering the northern part of the Caspian Sea as the spawning grounds for the inconnu, emphasizing explicitly that in the Kura and Terek rivers the inconnu has never been recorded.
Migrations of spawners into the Volga River are now prevented by the Volgograd impoundment and other dams built upstream, and the stock of the inconnu in the Caspian Sea is supported by the massive stocking of fingerlings which amounted to 70 million in the period 1969–73 (Kazancheev 1981).

Stage One: The aim of Stage One was to “localize the conflict.” This stage had two phases, first the movement up to the Terek River, and then the establishment of new civil administrations in the liberated Chechen districts with the transference of all power to them.
Here the strategy was to win the hearts and minds of the Chechen citizenry by converting this part of Chechnya into a model showcase with the availability of decent assets such as health care and schools, and the restoration of law and order.
The first zone would be the territory from the northern border to the Terek River.
