Baev, Pavel K. (2011) The Caucasus: A Hotbed of Terrorism in Metamorphosis, 0, 60. Paris: IFRI.

Since summer 2009, instability in the eastern part of the North Caucasus has escalated, a security threat against which the Russian leadership cannot find a strategy.

The inefficacy of Medvedev's strategy increases the probability that the 2011-2012 election cycle in Russia could be suddenly and profoundly influenced by terrorism originating in the North Caucasus.
