How Yermolov taught the Chechens to steal people


The mountaineers were captured by one major and demanded a ransom of ten thousand rubles from Yermolov himself, as the governor of the king. Not that slaughtered.
Having finished reading the letter, Yermolov, without interruption, ordered to bring into the yard of the house where he was holding the bet, all the old people who turned up, first of all from the richest courtyards, and who were more noble from them. Thirty people were brought.
"Tell me - there won't be a major tomorrow with me - I will hang these all up."
The elders turned green. Yermolov knew. A parliamentarian rode away. By evening, he returned: the ransom was reduced to one hundred rubles, apparently for self-esteem.
“And I can hang everyone,” - Yermolov turned his hand around the village.
More people did not kidnap him. He was cruel. Hanged.


Russian traditions of education of mountain peoplesAlexey Petrovich Yermolov put a lot of effort into restoring order in the Caucasian possessions of the Russian Empire, his victories over the rebellious highlanders brought him the deserved glory of one of the most successful military rulers of the region.

And more than once during the years of the Caucasian war 1829-1864. Russian soldiers recalled Yermolov, not doubting that with him this war would have been victoriously completed in a few years.

Lieutenant-General Yermolov was appointed commander of the Caucasus 29 June 1816. He was the ambassador extraordinary in Persia, the commander of the Separate Georgian Corps and the head of the civil part in Georgia, the Astrakhan and Caucasus provinces.

Although the Caucasus was called “warm Siberia” (as a place of exile), Yermolov was delighted with this appointment, as it allowed him to act independently in many respects. Sending a general to the Caucasus, Alexander I said: "After Kutuzov, Barclay and Bagration, I have no other commander." Thus, he paid tribute to the merits of Alexei Petrovich. The resolute general reached the zenith of his career, and in Russian society they informed each other: “Yermolov became proconsul of the Caucasus.”

The emperor demanded from Yermolov the earliest possible delimitation of land from Persia under the Gulustan peace treaty of 1813, while Alexander I allowed some concessions to the Persians, if only the matter ended peacefully. The general was also instructed to conquer as many Caucasian peoples as possible and, if possible, by peaceful means. As you know, Alexander I did not like violence and was known as a liberal.

10 October 1816 Yermolov arrived in Tiflis. At the time of his arrival, Russian forces in the Caucasus numbered about 45000 infantrymen, more 6000 cavalrymen and 132 guns. Of all these troops, only a third could be directly on the line guard - the military border with the mountaineers, while the rest was scattered around cities and other settlements of the Caucasus.

Upon assuming office, Yermolov left to inspect the borders of the territory entrusted to him. He sent out officers of his headquarters to different regions of the Caucasus, while he himself visited the Elisavetpol 'region, the Karabakh and several other khanates. Karabakh made a depressing impression on Yermolov: most of the families were either captured by the Persians, or fled to the neighboring lands, fleeing from the oppression of Mehdi Khan. In addition, Yermolov met with Shirvan khan and Sheki khan Ismail.

To all of them, the general made it clear that the time of their rule had passed, and for himself he concluded that most of the khans should be removed from power because of their unreliability.

As for borders, in a report to the tsar from 9 in January 1817, Mr. Yermolov reported that the borders with Persia are almost not protected.
However, measures to strengthen the borders had to be postponed, since 17 on April 1817 of the city of Yermolov left with the embassy in Persia. July 26 Yermolov arrived at the residence of the Shah. Began difficult negotiations. Shah demanded the return of the Persian lands, taken away in the last war. Yermolov was strongly opposed. Persia had to choose: either a conflict with Russia and a new war, or a rejection of all sorts of claims. After much thought, the shah decided to keep the peace. Yermolov, in turn, insisted on the establishment in Persia of Russian trade societies, offices and consulates, and demanded the return of Russian prisoners. In general, the general was pleased with the embassy. First, he managed to save all the lands that had been ceded to Russia in the Gulustan tractate 1813. Secondly, he established acceptable relations between Russia and Persia, postponing the war for nine years.

For this successful 8 embassy in February 1818 of Yermolov was promoted to general of infantry. Having secured the Caucasus from external danger, Yermolov began to strengthen the Caucasian line, since many fortresses and posts did not correspond to their purpose. Chechens and Dagestanis lived against the left flank of the Caucasian line.

The Chechens were especially cruel: they did not recognize any authority and no laws. The commander-in-chief demanded complete submission from Chechnya, but they attacked so often that by 1818 the Cossacks, who lived along the Terek, were afraid to leave the fortified stanitsa. Yermolov decided to press the Chechens deep into their forests and mountains. Namely, transfer the line of fortifications from the Terek River to the Sunzha River. When transferring the line to Sunzhu, Russia transferred troops to more favorable lands (first of all, in terms of climate), in addition, it contributed to strengthening the protection and improving communications with Georgia.

Even before Alexei Petrovich, a Nazranovsky redoubt was built on Sunzha, covering the road from Mozdok to Georgia. In the summer of 1817, the general ordered the construction of the Pregrand Stan fortification (built by October of the same year). This event was a direct pretext for the indignation of the highlanders. The Chechens began to show concern, their Russian troops successfully beat off their raids, but they could not prevent them. In the capital, Yermolov was accused of provoking raids in order to strengthen his own influence in the Caucasus. But in St. Petersburg they did not understand that the main type of "fishing" in the mountains was robbery, and the highlanders lived, guided by customs, which scientists would later call "raiding economy".

Russian also prevented rob, which caused discontent of the mountaineers. Russia had to either leave or eliminate the predatory nests in the Caucasus. The third option did not exist, the "peaceful re-education" of the Highlanders was impossible.

Constant raids of the Chechens forced Yermolov to begin military actions with Chechnya. Leaving the necessary garrisons in the fortifications and posts of the Caucasian line, he was in May 1818. concentrated in the village of Chervlenaya about 5000 people. May 24 troops crossed the Terek and entered the Chechen lands.

Passing Terek, the troops rose six miles from the Khankala gorge, which was considered impregnable. The mountaineers sent elders to Yermolov, to whom he said that he would not punish them for raids if they ceased, and also demanded hostages. 10 June 1818 was founded the fortress of Grozny. It was located very well, as it closed the Khankal Gorge, the most convenient road from the Big Chechnya. The Chechens realized that they would deal decisively with them, not allowing them to rob and kill, and then they began to attack Russian posts.

Yermolov announced that those who want to live peacefully on Russian territory will be provided with protection and peace, but if they contribute to the raids, he will send them back to the mountains. The general said bluntly: “It is better to leave the bare steppes from Terek to Sunzha, than to endure the robbers in the rear of our fortifications.” He also demanded the extradition of Russian prisoners, and threatened death for non-execution. In support of his words, the commander-in-chief demolished several villages that had been seen as aiding the robbers, and resettled their inhabitants for Sunzha. After that, it was announced that the village, through which the residents freely let the bandits through, would be exterminated.

Chechens were looking for an alliance with the neighboring peoples - Dagestanis. Only one Dagestan ruler - Mehdi-Shamkhal Tarkovsky supported Russia. Major General A. Pestel commanded the Russian troops in Dagestan. With the detachment in 2000, a man began fighting — he captured the city of Bashly, but a trap was waiting for them there: Avar Khan Ahmet gathered people who were ten times larger than the Russian detachment. For five days, Pestel’s detachment fought encircled, escaped, losing about 500 people killed and wounded.

Then it was impossible to wait, and Yermolov gathered a detachment from Grozny, and on October 25 marched to the city of Tarki.

Mehdi-Shamkhal was looking forward to the Russians, as rebellious neighbors threatened him with reprisals.

For his dedication to Russia, Yermolov rewarded Shamkhal: after the suppression of unrest, he was given control over a lot of land taken away from recalcitrant khans.

Ahmet Khan Avar sent a letter to the General with assurances of friendship, but soon the papers were intercepted, indicating that the Khan was ready to cooperate with the Persians. And Yermolov, of course, rejected such a false "friendship."

11 November 1818. Yermolov led the troops to the village of Cengutai. By evening, the detachment went to the mountain, where they were hiding up to 15000 gangsters; they started shelling Russians. The soldiers wanted to storm the mountain on the move, but Yermolov applied a roundabout maneuver, sending a detachment of troops to get around the enemy from the flank. By the evening of the next day, the mountain position was occupied, and there were no losses from the Russian side at all. The troops descended into the valley, where Ahmet Khan’s headquarters was located in the village of Paraul, but he did not take the fight and fled into the woods.

Then Yermolov 14 November approached the village of Big Cengutai, owned by Ahmet Khan's brother - Hasan Khan. The mountaineers strengthened on the ridge near the village. When the battle broke out on all fronts, the position was suddenly shrouded in mist surging from the neighboring gorge. Yermolov ordered to cease fire and storm enemy trenches. The blow was so unexpected that in 5 minutes half of the enemy's trenches was captured almost without loss. The mountaineers understood that the attempts of armed resistance would be broken, and the rebelliousness was severely punished. Therefore, many leaders of childbirth after that came to the commander in chief with expressions of submission.

Yermolov forgave everyone, but warned that inevitable punishments would follow the new speeches. So ended the first trip to Dagestan.

In Chechnya, unrest continued. It became clear that the Grozny fortress alone would not deter the Chechens. Measures were taken to strengthen our position on Sunzha. Almost all Khankal gorge was cleared from the forest. Beyond the gorge lay the valley where the main villages of the Chechens were located. As a result, most of them had to submit, now the path to their land was open. So, literally with one ax, a victory was won over the mountaineers.

1 July 1819 Yermolov arrived in the village of Andreevskoye, where he planned to build a fortress. Meanwhile, the mountaineers began to gather strength to attack Grozny and cut off the Russians from the Terek. Yermolov, in order to prevent an attack, ordered Major General Grekov to invade Chechnya. In early August, 1819, the general marched, and at this time the Avar Khan, gathering about 6000 people, approached the fortress of Sudden. 29 August Ermolov made a fortress to meet the enemy.

At the village of Bautugay, Russian troops clashed with the mountaineers and pushed them aside. The troops occupied the Bautugai and heights near the village. For four days, Yermolov fired at the highlanders, and on September 3 they faltered; Avar Khan and his brother fled to the mountains. Yermolov made an attempt to overtake them, burned several villages in the mountains and returned to the fortress of Sudden. In the autumn it became aware of the unrest among the akushintsy. Initially, Yermolov sent a paper to the Akushians, where he called for loyalty to Russia, but no response was received, and the general continued the fighting.

In early December, 1819, the troops went ahead. Without a single shot, the height of Kalantau was occupied, where a 1000 man with guns was left to cover. The main forces went to the village of Urum, where the rebellious akushintsy settled. General Madatov managed to drive the bandits out of the village, but they disappeared into the mountains. December 18 Yermolov withdrew troops from Urum and stopped in a cannon shot from the enemy advanced. Prince Madatov occupied the surrounding heights, preventing the Highlanders from retreating, and Russian artillery forced the enemy to leave the fortifications. The soldiers seized the cliffs above the road and fired from them running akushintsev. Cossacks pursued the highlanders. The victory was won in two hours, and the losses in this battle amounted to all 4 killed and 26 injured.

This victory pacified the Akushians, which made it possible to lift the blockade from the Chirakh post. Let's talk about the feat of defenders of Chirah. The December morning, the gangsters crept up to the post and cut out the sleeping 80 people, others managed to hide in a protected position. For several days the detachment steadfastly resisted the superior enemy in strength (there were 5 – 6 thousands against approximately 400 Russians). The highlanders captured officer Shcherbina and tortured him to death in front of the defenders of Chirch. All attempts to take reinforcements by storm were repulsed. During the three days of the siege, the garrison ran out of water to quench their thirst - they ate gunpowder. But help came and the blockade was lifted.

Of the defenders of Chirach, only 70 people survived, and only 8 is intact. Headquarters Captain Ovechkin survived with numerous injuries and received the rank of captain and the Order of St.. Vladimir IV degree.

December 29 The 1819 Commander-in-Chief went to Derbent to appoint the Russian administration in most of the territory of Dagestan instead of the recalcitrant Khans. Highlanders were completely broken and did not oppose this.

In general, the first three years of Alexei Petrovich’s activities in the Caucasus can be described as very successful.

Following the Roman rules: "divide and rule" and "let them hate, if only they were afraid," Yermolov pacified many recalcitrant tribes (and, first of all, Chechens and akushintsy).

Often he acted cruelly, but this was justified by the conditions of the Caucasian war. By the beginning of 1820, General Yermolov managed to gain a foothold on the shores of Sunzha, under his command the Russian troops put an end to the independence of the Mekhtuli khanate, conquered Tabasaran and Karakaytag. So the victory of Russian weapons ended the first stage of the conquest of the North Caucasus. All these victories were won by incomparably small forces against the significantly higher number of insurgent detachments and with minimal losses, which for many years strengthened the high reputation of Russian weapons in the Caucasus.

      Greetings Alibek. In principle, all topics are repeated. In particular, in this article I am interested in a previously unknown portrait of Yermolov. It would be interesting to know his story. But I did not like the article very much. You don’t understand, whether the author expresses his thoughts in the language of that era, or whether he quotes contemporaries of Ermolov, then it would be correct to refer to sources. Not seeing your comment I can not judge him. Try to present it in a more acceptable form, maybe then a topic for discussion will appear.

          Hello dear Alibek. Sadly, you're right. But the military from Israel thoroughly studied its history (Hero of the Soviet Union Baurzhan Mamyshuly). Somehow they showed on TV where a Jew alone said that if we had such a person we would print the most expensive bill in his portrait. At such a pace, losing allies is a short-lived affair. Respect the heroes of the Empires and the USSR, but not in Russia, but abroad.

    And now Chechens, 400 police officers a year, are being cut out from Russian regions which are being taken on business trips to them as sacrificial bulls. In our time, Ermolov would have been imprisoned and made privates and would have been called a rapist and murderer, like Colonel Budanov for all merits to Russia, the soldier decided to protect and threatened “civilians” so that they would give him a sniper, he punished all the guys who died from her rifle, and they sent him for the murder of a maniac-Kungaeva, who in one day killed 18 soldiers and officers of the 160th tank regiment exclusively in the groin and eyes. But “Khan-murderer” is the Hero of Russia (who killed the first Russian at 16, he is now 36 ie in 93 when there was no war, he killed in peacetime). Instead of putting things in order there, our leadership fills them with money from the Russian regions, they organized the genocide of Russians in the 90s, they helped the Germans in the Second World War, and RUSSIA, a Bountiful Soul, creates a paradise on earth for killer-sadistic rapists. God forbid that he comes to power, he doesn’t “tolerate” who, for all those killed and for showing off the camera, the dismembered Russian guys will present the bill.

The rape is not mentioned in the materials of the criminal case, but she had to be given to the entire division (for those who would not disdain, for that matter) she killed 18 people, this is only proven. What to do with a killer ?! To prison or what? So she came out after 3 years and gave birth to the same 20? What would she teach them !? How to kill Russians !? We need an “iron curtain” over Chechnya for one killed 50 Russian Chechens at the stadium, and everything would be human. And then they only know how to kill and rob. It is necessary to burn out this Maniac mentality from their heads, they live on their necks and bulls.

The Caucasus recognizes only one law - force and cruelty (I know firsthand - my brother seized part of the 1st campaign and the 2nd, was injured, told a lot of things). Maybe according to the law, Russian women were raped and beaten to death in the mountain villages, and when ours came in and saw dead Russian women on the streets with sticks clogged in the vagina, after such a sight, any normal Russian peasant has one reaction - to interfere with such evil spirits with clay, which was done. Or maybe according to the law in Budenovsk during capture hospital(not a military unit, this "heroism" was not enough) more than 100 people were killed, including women, children and the elderly. And there is no other way in the Caucasus — either we or us !!! But we STRONGER!!!

        Girls give birth and raise children, and this is a sexless, filthy creature. Budanov did absolutely right. If our military more often did just that and used the "pedagogical" experience of Ermolov, today we would see a completely different Caucasus. I belong to normal Caucasians, but I’m not sorry for the “animals”. What we have as a result of impotent politics in the Caucasus - in addition to the actually unstable Caucasus, there are also incidents like Kondapoga. In the north of Russia, with the predominance of the Russian population, it is wild, we should not allow the repetition of such cases, and in the case of repetitions, we should strictly suppress them according to the laws of war.

    A good article, something like this began to enter the second Chechen when they were able to throw away pink snot about civilians. And now in the Caucasus they understand they will be sick, they will forget how everything was and they will have to rebuild the cities anew.
    We must not forget the Caucasus; we must feel a strong hand on our scruff, and not the trembling drunken hand of Borka drunk.

          The Russian man is very calm and very restrained, very often, it is perceived as a weakness ... like he would endure everything ... But here's the thing, although you don’t want about the Russian rebellion and other things that got your teeth on edge, you noticed that the latter time, the people cultivate hatred of blacks and indiscriminately through the forces of the media. Opinion polls are conducted, they write about the performances of fans ... Black is exposed as animals that do not deserve a kind word. This is already splashing out on the streets, they are more afraid of us than we are of them. And still the pendulum continues to spin. Among them, there is an opinion that without a weapon it is not necessary to go out on the street, as they can be severely beaten and with a knife you have at least some chances. You noticed how you started cleaning markets in Moscow from visitors. The cops laughed and 3-4 thousand sellers in the market got money (bought for sure) and also a thousand sat at the end of the camp.
          And now the question is, what do you think will be done in the Kremlin? they will run after Natsik with shouts: “Guys, guys, well, what are you doing, let's not” Or will they try to lead this movement within reasonable limits? Pragmatists sit in the Kremlin

    In Asia, and not only, the Force was always respected, especially in the Caucasus.
    Israelis quietly demolishing the homes of terrorists. But we can’t - genocide of the local population.
    Since 1989, the robbery and extermination of the Slavic population in Kazakhstan, Central Asia and the Caucasus (in ALL republics) began, the destruction of industry is a division of the Russian heritage.
    Now they are coming to us. And here the surviving Slavic immigrants, who have already seen the death of their relatives and friends. Left for nowhere, saving their lives, without money sent by the state, in the form of officials.
    The Orthodox Church abolished blood feud, but does not prohibit collecting debts. An eye for an eye ... And they already feel, otherwise they would not have fled from Russia.
    I don’t know how YOU have in the regions, but everything is quiet and calm. Everyone knows their place. Maybe because the native lands are far away? (Although the Chinese are on foot for a day). Or maybe it depends on the local population ??
    The larger the settlement, the more selfishness.
    The basis of the Russians is a community (mutual assistance).
    All egoists, perverts, liberals, illegal migrants, etc. (not corresponding to the Russian rules of conduct) have already gathered in the Moscow principality. Maybe fucking?
    i am a community

      Do not write nonsense. Seeing everything yourself is one thing, but listening to fairy tales is completely different, which supposedly came from Kazakhstan (but it turned out to be Uzbekistan or from somewhere else). Do not write such a heresy about Kazakhstan, more Russians in Ukraine and the Baltic states are being squeezed than ours. How many are in the bodies - I have never heard with my colleagues about the murder of Russians in Kazakhstan, because we live best friends side by side, and such a lie is simply offensive to any Kazakh. Do not forget for Russia now Belarus and Kazakhstan are the closest.

        We are bordering with Kazakhstan and I know firsthand how Russians survive from the original Russian city of Uralsk, founded by Cossacks, so save your stories for those who did not encounter the queues of Russian people in the departments of the Federal Migration Service of the Russian Federation, who were forced to leave Kazakhstan precisely. And I am quite able to distinguish a Kazakhstan passport from an Uzbek or Tajik one ... So, not everything is so weird in Kazakhstan, if people are forced to leave for Russia from there.

    I can not help but write a comment about Alexei Petrovich Ermolov.
    Ermolov had a peculiar appearance resembling something lion's: huge growth, heroic build, large features under a cap of thick hair, shifted eyebrows with a deep fold between them gave his face a stern expression, small fiery gray eyes looked strictly and definitely.

    An excellent portrait of Alexei Petrovich Ermolov by George Dow. Military Gallery of the Winter Palace, State Hermitage Museum (St. Petersburg).

    Until the very 1991 year, the bust of Ermolov, as the founder of the fortress of Grozny, stood in the center of the city, however, behind two rows of barbed wire, because they constantly tried to blow him up. Yermolov’s statement went around Grozny that Chechens cannot be re-educated, they can only be destroyed. Belongs to the legendary general or not - I can not say.
    But he spoke with the Highlanders in their language - the language of power. He was respected and hated. They hated Russia, but respected the Russians, thanks to him.

    Yeah, - Yermolov is not enough for us now, oh how not enough. And this does not mean that there are no such officers and generals - they simply would not give descent to bureaucratic thieves and lawlessness, who flirt with all sorts of diasporas that give big kickbacks to the pockets of "servants", that is, enemies of the people (forgive me, I will call a spade a spade ) But such people are disadvantageous to the authorities and naturally hated by savages, with whom they fight not with shitty democratic tolerance and fagot flirting, but with their own wild medieval methods, because savages understand and respect only hard and inevitable power.

    Until all this continues, time will tell.

    And what to talk about at all - somehow I drove to a friend in a military unit when he was in the army. While he was waiting for him at the checkpoint, a sailor-dag sat next to him. Well, it became boring, we started talking about this and that. Although in Russian with an accent, he understood everything and spoke well. Well, of course, the matter of the national question was touched. Well, he began to talk about Russians - they say, why are you boiling, why are you dissatisfied? It’s your own fault, you behave like women, you don’t want to fight back, keep quiet when you are bullied. This behavior dishonors a man in the Caucasus (and is it only in the Caucasus? In my opinion, everywhere) - it is despised and there is no respect for such people. That says the first. The second - power - in unity. We say, one and the other for one mountain, if our offended. And you have FSUs if they beat a Russian. The rest passed or turned their faces away. He tells you how anyone behaves here - that’s how they behave as they want. Who is to blame? We? No, he says - you yourself are to blame.

    So I wanted to object to him - but what to object to? He was telling the truth - isn't that so? Is this not the case? While we ourselves will behave like a lo-hee, and silently look at the chaos of individual wild scumbags - this will happen. On household soil. On the road, on the streets.
    Slavs, it’s time for us to stop fooling around and become not a wretch of the west, but self-sufficient strong people.

    According to the inexorable logic of Russian history, a genuine restoration of Russian statehood should symbolically be expressed in the restoration of the monument to Yermolov in the city founded by him - Grozny. Moreover, I think it should be a monument to Yermolov with his sons. Indeed, few people know that from three so-called “kebin” marriages with Chechens, Alexei Petrovich Ermolov had four sons. All of them continued the work of their father and served Russia faithfully on the battlefield. Elder Bakhtiyar (in holy baptism - Victor), Umar, baptized by Claudius, and Allahr - in the baptism of Northerners. Another son of the general - Peter Alekseevich Ermolov, died very young in the rank of non-commissioned officer of the Tenginsky regiment.
    All of them fought in the Caucasus, Victor rose to the rank of lieutenant general, Claudius resigned as major general, and Severyan became colonel. Ermolov married all of them, from all he waited for his grandchildren.
    There is no doubt that not only Yermolov personally could be proud of such sons, today both the Russian and Chechen peoples can rightfully be proud of them.

    This bust was installed by personal order of Beria in 1949 on Chernyshevsky Street in Grozny. Blown up in 1989 year.



    And this bust is set in Stavropol.
    How long? The Chechen component in Stavropol, as well as in the Stavropol Territory as a whole, is growing steadily.
