Description : The two Chechen conflicts left this village virtually destroyed. Before the conflicts, there were 1914 households living in the village. Today, only 73 remain. The land in and around Bamut is mined. Khadris home was destroyed in 1995, after which he and his family fled to Ingushetia, where they lived in a former Soviet era farm. They returned to Bamut earlier than most families - in 2006 - and had to live in a tent before getting a room in the collective centre. The government built them a house. Unfortunately, it is too distant from the public utilities system, and thus remains uninhabited by the family.
