Hamzat, a man in his mid-twenties, is a recent arrival to Canada. (Hamzat is 
not his real name. The Globe and Mail is protecting his identity because he 
fears repercussions for friends and family in Chechnya, and because he is 
concerned that some Chechen-Canadians might wish him ill.) In an interview with 
The Globe, he was cautious but calm, offering a brief smile from time to time. 
He described how his ordeals began: One day in March, men wearing green khaki 
uniforms appeared in his place of work in Grozny, the capital of Chechnya. He 
was handcuffed, placed in the trunk of a car, and taken to a local police 
headquarters. "I don't know how to express this. I was in shock," he said, 
speaking through an interpreter.

I am watching newcoldwar.com and other sites to see if anyone denies the 
accuracy of this story.
Roger Annis did make a valid point, warning against instrumentalising this 
situation in support of Canadian military and political initiatives in that 
part of the world.
