General History/World Geography


1. Groznyy is the capital of Chechnya, a Muslim region which is currently attempting to gain independence from Russia.

A. What Muslim country of the C.I.S. is CLOSEST to Groznyy?

B. IN the 1990s, what Christian nation was involved in fighting with the country you mentioned in part A?

Thi is at least partly outside my area of expertise here since I'm not an expert of geography here. Even so I'll try to answer it.

A. I think it is Azerbadian (not sure of the English spelling).
B. Armenia (over Nagorno-Karabach).

I have a long and intense interest in European and World History. This also includes Military History - especially as I have been a military physician-surgeon for 15 years. I`m also interested in the history of Science, Technology-Engineering, Medicine and Mathematics.


A life long intense interest. But I'm not a professional historian - though the next best thing, an educated VERY interested amateur!

I'm a Doctor of Medicine, specialist in Medical Oncology, Radiation Therapy and Radiation Protection. But that has no connection to this.
However I do answer such questions too here on and have done so for a long time. For such questions click on the appropriate link: Oncology (General Cancer), Military History, Brain Tumors, Breast Cancer, Colon Cancer
