Grozny is the capital city of the Chechen Republic, Russia. The city lies on the Sunzha River. According to the 2010 Census, it had a population of 271,573; up from 210,720 recorded in the 2002 Census, but still only about two-thirds of 399,688 recorded in the 1989 Census.NamesIn Russian, "Grozny" means "fearsome", "awesome", or "redoubtable". While the official name in Chechen is the same, informally the city is known as "", which literally means "the city on the Sunzha River".In 1996, during the First Chechen War, the Chechen separatists renamed the city Dzokhar-Ghala, or Dzhokhar/Djohar for short, after Dzhokhar Dudayev, the first President of the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria. In December 2005, the Chechen parliament voted to rename the city "Akhmadkala" (after Akhmad Kadyrov)—a proposition which was rejected by his son Ramzan Kadyrov, the prime minister and later President of the republic.
