    Just another misleading video by Chechen liveleaker and islamist Baysangur.

  • The FSB' local puppet rulers , and collaborator ' police ' in Chechnya , Dagestan , Ingushhetia , and North Ossetia fuel the Islamist groupings . There are without question foreign fanatics there , most while religious are not fanatics . They do not want to live on their knees , ruled by a foreign power . Americans should agree with that .
