On Chechens mining gold in Siberia


Gelani

These are the wives and children of two Chechen brothers (+ 1 Russian tourist) who were on holidays near the village of Nikhaloy in the mountains of Chechnya. They left their war torn homeland 17 years ago and moved to Yakutsk in north-eastern Siberia, where they are working in gold mining. They still miss their native Chechnya and try to come back on holidays as often as they can. Their women and children had a great time jumping and splashing around in the basin of a waterfall all dressed up, as their conservative religious convictions prescribe.
