On September 6, 1991 mass demonstrations of Chechens, gathered in the streets in connection with the coup of the Emergency Committee in Moscow which planned a new deportation of Chechens to Siberia, reached maximum intensity.
Crowds of people, led by the leaders of the NCCP (National Congress of Chechen People) dispersed the Supreme Council of the Chechen-Ingush Republic. Power passed to the NCCP under the chairmanship of General Dudayev.
Starting from creation of the NCCP and after coming to power, the Chechen leaders did everything to adhere to democratic principles based on international law. However, subsequent events showed that democracy did not save the Chechen people from another genocide.
The democratic world, to which the Chechens held out the hand of friendship and help, looked with cold-blooded cynicism how Russia drowned in blood the Chechens. Moreover, the democratic world encouraged without hesitating Moscow to mass murders by funding aggression against the CRI.
Chechens have experienced the principles of "real politik" dictating the rules of political benefits and bargaining. The result was freeing from the sad experience of democratic illusions and return to the basis of their religion.
