Historical Security Council
The Second Chechen War
Freeze Date - 2 October, 1999
"War doesn’t determine who is right-only who is left.”
The United Nations Security Council is one of the six principal organs of the United Nations & is charged with ensuring international peace & security, recommending the admission of new UN members to the General Assembly, & approving any changes to the UN Charter.
The 1st Chechen War is over. About 40,000 civilians are dead. 4,000 Russian troops killed, 18,000 wounded & 2,000 MIA. In late August & early September, 1999, Russia mounted a massive aerial campaign over Chechnya; the stated aim being the wiping out of militants who invaded Dagestan earlier in the same month. Will thousands die once more or will the world come together to prevent bloodshed? The ball is in your court delegates.
