From the Paper:

"The basic problem from the Russian perspective is how to get the Chechens to accept Russian sovereignty. They failed to win any sort of charm offensive and continue to hold that status. During the war villages that signed peace agreements were bombed indiscriminately and without warning, and cooperation with authorities never was a guarantee of safety, as it should have been. With the military under poor discipline, it is the civilians who often become the targets and who are most deeply affected. "
