The Chechens and Ingush have common origin and similar language and culture, but owing to the force of historical coincidence of circumstances they have developed into the separate nations who, nevertheless, are fully aware of their unity, and apart from their national self-names – Nokhchi (Chechens) and Galgai (Ingush), have their common name - Vainakhs, i.e., “our people”.
