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

History[edit]

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.
