Since the beginning of the military operation in Afghanistan financial flows to support Chechen militants coming from abroad have been reduced significantly. This statement was made Tuesday by Stanislav Kavun, deputy commander-in-chief of the interior troops of the Russian Interior Ministry. According to him, outbursts of Chechen gang groups' activity are observed after "a regular financial feeding." According to the data provided by the Russian Interior Ministry, this happened in May, August and September. After the start of the international operation in Afghanistan the financing of Chechen gang groups dropped and given a lack of money there are serious disagreements between the Chechen field commanders, General Kavun said.
