Abstract: Following the rather abrupt disintegration of the Soviet Union in 1991, the world bore witness to the eruptions of genocidal conflicts, civil wars, and secessionist movements fought under the presumption of ethnic lines. Russia, the biggest state that came out in the aftermath of the collapse of the Soviet empire was not spared from secessionist struggles. From the period between 1991 and 1994, former President Boris Yeltsin disputed with many of Russian's autonomous republics over the issue of sovereignty. Most of them claimed for more self-governing power, with the two most separatist republics - Tatarstan and Chechnya - seeking independence.
