About Anne Nivat

French journalist and author Anne Nivat has traveled to war-torn Chechnya very frequently during the last decade. Since the republic’s second war with Russia broke out in 1999, she has covered the events in Chechnya by blending in with the local population and sharing the danger and despair of their lives. In her book, “Chienne de Guerre: A Woman Reporter Behind the Lines of the War in Chechnya,” she told of the nine months she spent there during the war.
