This chapter discusses several background themes that influence the groups and affiliations, networks and latterly distinctive armed resistance movements in the Balkans and the Caucasus during the mid-1990s. It outlines some of the prominent features of the recent history of Kosovo and Chechnya and emphasises how particular events in the twentieth century shaped the different resistance movements. It then explains how regional politics helped shape some aspects of each movement, before differentiating the two movements.
