More than 20 years, the Chechen immigrants are in the territory of the European Union. Most are former separatists, who arrived in Western countries as refugees. Closed communities of immigrants are poorly integrated into local life. German law-enforcement authorities fix frequent clashes with the Europeans, a growing number of Chechen organized criminal groups. These gangs are the most closed, disciplined and violent.

«Were holding guns and fittings»

The complex relationship between the irreconcilable separatists and their European environment — the conflict of worldviews. «I was told as refugees in the European Union deal with police. Bully-Chechen suitable to a policeman and beats him up. He is not protected and just off to the side. A bully is not stopped and re-strikes. The policeman retreats. The fact that a servant of the law waiting for witnesses. Without it, he feels has no right to stop the excesses,» — said RIA Novosti expert on the North Caucasus, doctor of political Sciences Artur Ataev.

Clashes between the Chechen Diaspora and the Germans happen in clubs where former refugees foraged extortion. At risk any place where criminals and victims are left alone. To the attacks of the Chechens complain to the owners of private enterprises, working alone or with a small number of employees. In Germany and Austria, the Chechens have carried out raids on barbershops, workshops and food stalls, demanding «compensation» from one thousand to fifteen thousand euros per month.

In the French Reims the criminals decided to «take revenge» one of the locals. «Chechens descended unexpectedly, and all in rage. Got out of the car with sticks, guns and fragments of rebar in his hands. Some of the faces were masks. Motioned: that will slit our throats. Women and children had to hide in the house,» the witness said of the attack to the newspaper L’union. However, ended the bandit RAID is on as you expect the criminals: those who were attacked themselves opened fire and routed them.

The most closed mafia

«I believe that the threat from Chechen gangs potentially very large, and I had been pointed to her. But I could not imagine that she will worsen», — told Sputnik Germany historian and ethnologist Christian Askold. According to him, the underworld of Berlin divided the migrant groups. The Chechens are distinguished by the fact that kept to themselves. «I think they get along much better than with others. They have an aloofness towards strangers. These former refugees can’t stand dirty linen in public and try to solve all the issues in their environment. In a criminal context it gives its consequences: the authorities is extremely difficult to get intelligence data about the Chechen gangs,» he said Ostholt.

As said RIA Novosti press-Secretary of the head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, Alvi Karimov, the separatists, living in the European Union, has long lost the moral right to call themselves refugees. «Once upon a time it could still be adequate for fighting or for economic reasons in the case of large families, but now in the Republic there is no trace of this social phenomenon — refugee. If today who leave Chechnya, this is due to the desire to obtain any special education, and the share of such citizens is less than in other regions», — said Karimov.

According to Atayev, the attitude to the Chechen migrants has changed dramatically and on the other side of the border: «With this migration was initially involves a lot of deception, since the 1990s, when the Chechens posed as representatives of other peoples of Russia to get to Europe. Followed by these criminal attacks. Now people from Chechnya in Europe are extremely reluctant to accept. One well-known opposition blogger now trying to obtain asylum in Poland, and it is denied».

Although the flow of migration from Chechnya has dried up, those who settled in Europe, should not be discounted. «I would not rule out that these people are still backing the anti-Russian struggle,» concludes Ataev.
