    'The emphasis of environmental policies in these nations have in most cases relied on the Western values and the “Willingness to pay” principles, despite the differences in national contexture and culture. Such a stance has led to the creation of values and access to subsistence which are linked to sacrificing environmental quality for short-term economic gain.'

Talks aimed at restoring trust between the pro-Russian Chechen administration and Russia’s federal forces, have been held behind closed doors in the Chechen capital, Grozny. The talks were called after an incident where ten civilians in the village of Asinkoe were injured during a federal army “rebel clearing” operation there. The acting Commander in the Northern Caucasus, Vladimir Moltenskoi, said that for peace and stability, it was paramount that laws should be respected. But federal forces’ violations have strained relations with the pro-Chechen administration. Two members of the military have been suspended and another has received a reprimand. The head of the Chechen administration, Akhmad Kadyrov, has called for those guilty to be punished.
