1) Chechnya isn´t a country, it is a region in Russia - a region, with lots of oil and minerals.
2) I doubt US would want to invade Russia.
Chechnya is a region in Russiathat wanted independence, although Russia did not want to let it go, as many other regions in Russia would like to do
the same and that region is rich with minerals and oil. So there was a war after terrorist attacks in Russia, after which the pro-Moscow government
was installed in Checnya and all the separatist leaders of Checnyans were killed.
Chechnyans are are a nation on their own - their nature and looks are different from Russians, like Georgia, although they are part of Russia, which
means by citizenship they are citizens of Russia. There are still chechnyan groups out there who want independence, although they are working
underground or not actively on it.
You can read about Chechnya:
Attacking Chechnya would be the same as attacking Russia and if US decided to something like that, it would be extremely dumb move. Probably Russia
will just tighten the grip over its region.There are millions of people of Russian origin all around the world, you can not control all of them...
