Chechens in France is a small diaspora in France but one of the most important groups in the Chechen diaspora.


The Chechen immigrants came in France at the early 2000s, because of the two Chechen Wars. They came as political refugees.[2] Today, there are approximately 30,000 Chechens in France, and 60,000 in the European Union.
