Stolen Brides

Sorry, there are no airings at this time. Please check this page for future updates.

Chechnya is one of the poorest of Russia's republics. Women living here are caught between resurgent Islam and a brutal regime. Polygamy - illegal under Russian law - is supported and encouraged by the Chechen President. Often, if a man decides to marry, instead of courting his bride-to-be, he kidnaps her. The only person who can stop the marriage taking place is the Mullah who acts as an intermediary between the 'bride's' and 'groom's' families.
