Russia’s Hidden War (Documentary Movie)
Australian TV channel SBS One broadcasted a documentary movie “Russia’s Hidden War” at “Dateline” news programme on 18 October 2009.
A hidden war is escalating in the Caucasus Mountains along Russia’s southern fringe. In response to an increasing number of suicide attacks, Moscow says it is battling militant Islam in the tiny republic of Ingushetia. But locals say hundreds of innocent civilians are being kidnapped, tortured and murdered at the hands of Russian security forces.
Reporter Evan Williams travels to Ingushetia to report on this deadly battle for control. Locals say they live in terror of a Russian security apparatus out of control.
