The Chechen rebel presence in Russia has increased in recent years, particularly during the period of high tensions between Russia and the West following the 2011 downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 over Ukraine and then the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 by a separatist fighter jet (see also: “What Really Happened to MH17?” and “Putin’s War on MH17”).
