Cecenia isi schimba numele care are acum o conotatie negativa

    Presedintele-marioneta al Ceceniei a propus sa se schimbe numele tarii care ar avea conotatie negativa.

    In opinia sa, tara ar trebui sa se numeasca Nokhchiin .

    “Nokhchii” is the term used by Chechens to describe themselves in the Chechen language. Ethnographers also use the term “Vainakh” to collectively describe Chechens and their close ethnic and linguistic kin, the Ingush. During the short period of de-facto independence in the 1990s, separatist leaders gave the North Caucasus region the name “The Chechen Republic of Ichkeria,” AP reports.
