Photo journal: Postcards from Russia - Part II
Yukon Settlement, Ingushetia

The war in Chechnya is now Europe's longest-running and bloodiest conflict.

Despite the Russian authorities repatriating many back to Chechnya from neighbouring Ingushetia, thousands still remain.

Hadijhat Samaiva lives in a small mud brick building on the grounds of an abandoned factory, along with her husband, their eight children and her parents.

The family fled Chechnya after their home was demolished and Hadijhat’s brother disappeared, feared kidnapped by Russian soldiers.
