Both Wikitravel and Wikivoyage warn about the dangers of being kidnapped if you visit Grozny, the capital of Chechnya. Wikivoyage has this wording:
Rebels often take tourists as hostages, so try to blend in with the population.
I knew a guy from Grozny a few years ago when I was working in a hostel in Tbilisi Georgia and he was always telling me how safe it is there these days with Kadyrov in control and being good buddies with Putin.
While I'm sure it's not safe like Japan, it does seem that the articles have stagnated and are not kept up to date, like many other pages on those sites for places western tourists don't commonly visit.
So what is factually available to us such as recent reports in the news or official or unofficial statistics just regarding kidnapping in Grozny in recent years?
