In fall 1999 and winter 1999-2000, ten years ago, masses of Chechen insurgents and numerous islamist mercenaries from all over the world were defeated by the Armed Forced of the Russian Federation, Russian Police units and pro-Russian Chechen units under the command of Bislan Gantamirov (an ethnic Chechen).
The islamist and separatist insurgents, officially representing the Armed Forced of Ichkeriya (a mythical name invented by Chechen nationalist instead of the name "Chechnya") suffered heavy losses both inside Grozny and especially during their panic flight from the city toward the mountainous area across mine-fields laid by Russians in advance.
The photographs show the aftermath of the Chechen defeat by Russians - the gathering of dead Chechen bodies by the Russian servicemen and the burrying thereof.
Of notice is the fact that Russians left the heads and faces of the Chechen dead unburried so that their relatives could come, identify them and take away to their family cemetary - a rather noble action by Russians toward the islamists who had always abused the corpses of their adversaries, mutilated them, cut of genitals and faces, used as a shield etc.

(ZINDAN is a Chechen invention - a deep whole in the ground made to keep slaves inside for historically the slave trade has always been one of the main income sources for Chechens whose traditions and culture sees any agricultural or assiduous physical labor as humiliating for "real men").
