Author of travel book compares Northern Caucasus with Western Europe
Stories about travels in Northern Caucasus have become an important part of the book "People on the Map. Russia: From Edge to Extremity" by a Moscow journalist, Vladimir Sevrinovsky. The Caucasus seems monolithic only from outside, but the difference among the Caucasian republics is no smaller than among the countries of Western Europe, the author has noted.
According to his version, he had been working in Northern Caucasus for a long time and wrote a lot thereon.
"I'm looking for interesting stories ... for example, I describe the trip of a British TV team that began in Sochi and ended in Dagestan. The story heroes include a Karachay Salafi, Chechen rockers, Ossetian informals and many other people," he has explained.
Mr Sevrinovsky has confessed that he loves the Caucasus. In his opinion, this is the most active and violent of Russian regions; there are "a lot of everything – both good and bad – there."
The book is a result of his trips over the regions of Russia, Vladimir Sevrinovsky wrote in his Telegram channel.
