Issa Kodzoev speaks about lands lost by Ingush people since 1944

Over more than 70 years, the territory of Ingushetia has been steadily declining, and the current agreement to establish the border with Chechnya continues the above trend, said writer Issa Kodzoev, whose story about the change in the borders of the republic was published on YouTube.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on September 26, Ramzan Kadyrov and Yunus-Bek Evkurov signed the agreement on securing the border between Chechnya and Ingushetia. Residents of Ingushetia took to mass actions in protest against the transfer of lands.

Issa Kodzoev, a well-known Ingush writer and a public figure, reported about the metamorphosis the territory of Ingushetia experienced over the past 60 years.

On October 9, the video was posted on the Rustam Leimoev's channel in YouTube. In the video, Issa Kodzoev demonstrates a map which shows the territory in which the Ingush people lived until 1944. The writer reports which areas Ingushetia lost since then.

"I want not only the Ingush and Chechen people, but also other North-Caucasian peoples to know why the Ingush residents rose to defend their territory," Issa Kodzoev said. Meanwhile, he called the protest in Magas a spontaneous action.

"We also need the land to live on," Issa Kodzoev concluded.
