New Information on Relations between Kazakhs and Chechens
The Trails of Nomads scientific expedition has discovered new information in North Caucasus about the relations between Kazakhs and Chechens. Based on evidence, Kumyk and Nogai villages located along Terek and Sunzha rivers used to be the ancient settlements of Turkic Kipchaks.
There are many Turkic toponyms in the North Caucasus as well as in the territory of Chechnya, said Deputy Director General of Memorial Complex of Glory of A. Kadyrov, Islam Khatuyev. For example, the name of both the river and gorge is Argun.
Scientists said that the traces of the ancestors can also be found in the Republic of Ingushetia. There is a mausoleum, located near the Karabulak village where according to historical data was built in the 10th to 15th centuries.
“We can say that our ancestors could build such mausoleums because the locals did not erect such structures. Scientists said that Bogda Khan is buried in this area. Under his leadership, the Nogais, Kumyks and other Turkic people lived in peace and harmony,” said Director of ‘The Trails of Nomads’ Expedition, Sapar Iskakov.
