I welcome any information concerning Noukhaev, his business and political past, his network of contacts, his position in Chechen society and discourse, as well as any other aspect of his life and ideas. Especially information related to the period after October 2003 would be very much appreciated. All correspondence will be treated with discretion. You can contact me at: Thank you in advance.
