The Caucasus Emirate, also known as the Caucasian Emirate, is a self-proclaimed virtual state entity in Eastern Europe, partially a successor to the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria, and was officially announced on October 31, 2007, by former President of Ichkeria Dokka Umarov, who became the first emir. Its military branch is the Caucasian Front organization. Both the Russian Federation and the United States have designated the Caucasus Emirate as a terrorist organisation. The United States government has offered US$5 million for information leading to the capture of the group's leader, Dokka Umarov. On July 29, 2011, the United Nations Security Council Al-Qaeda and Taliban Sanctions Committee added the Caucasus Emirate to the list of entities associated with Al-Qaeda. - Source: Wikipedia
