American Committee for Peace in Chechnya
The American Committee for Peace in Chechnya (later rebranded The American Committee for Peace in the Caucasus) is an initiative of the US think-tank Freedom House, filled with foreign policy hawks. After the Boston Marathon Bombing in 2013, the committee appear to have been put on ice. According to Freedom House, ACPC “coordinates with an international network of activists, journalists, scholars and nongovernmental organizations to advocate for and support human rights and rule of law, to monitor the upward trend of violence in the region, and to promote peace and stability in the North Caucasus.”
It bills itself as the ”only private, nongovernmental organization in North America exclusively dedicated to promoting the peaceful resolution of the Russo-Chechen war.” Since virtually all the members are deep state actors previously involved in similar efforts in Afghanistan and Yugoslavia, and Freedom House is US government financed, the "private and nongovernmental" is a very thin fig leaf, like with most influential NGOs.
It was founded in 1999 after the start of the second Chechen war in 1999, by U.S. liberal hawks and neoconservatives primarily interested in using the conflict in Chechnya to press a breakup of the Russian Federation.
The ACPC eventually updated its name and broadened its focus after conflicts erupted between Russia and other parts of the Caucasus, including Ingushetia, Dagestan, Kabardino-Balkaria, Karachay-Cherkessia, and North Ossetia.
In early 2013, the committee attracted attention when the suspects (Tamerlan Tsarnaev) in the April 2013 Boston marathon bombing were identified as ethnic Chechens.Because of the Committee's interest in protecting and aiding exile Chechen groups as anti-Russian front groups, the FBI and other intelligence services ignored warnings from Russian authorities that one of the alleged bombers had met repeatedly with a suspected terrorist leader in Dagestan. After this event, the Committee seems to have gone in more or less hiatus.
Its tactics were designed to further the overall US goals in the region, which means to insert the US and the US dominated 'international community' into the conflict; internationalize a national conflict; insert NGOs into the region to create propaganda and dominate the media picture,and to covertly supply the rebels and create a para-military infrastructure.
- Advocacy: Developing and promoting policies, through the U.S. government and international institutions, aimed at protecting civilians, improving conditions for refugees and securing a cease-fire. A cease fire would mean a de facto win for the separatists
- Information: Advancing public awareness of the Chechen separatists cause, including its broader implications for democracy, human rights, and regional stability in both Russia and the former Soviet Union; meaning a propaganda effort to paint Russia as a threat by publicizing atrocities committed by Russian forces in the region. In 2001, the ACPC issued a press release" urging "G-7 Leaders to Hold Russia Accountable for Human Rights Abuses in Chechnya 
- Diplomacy: Convening private "Track II" talks between representatives of the Russian government and Chechen separatists militants, aimed at developing a framework for ending the war and resolving Chechnya's long-term legal and political status, i.e. giving the separatists legitimacy, also done by describing the separatist officials as "foreign minister" etc.,
Two of the demands ACPC published in an open letter is similar to the Rambouillet demands to Milosevic before the 2001 Kosovo war "Allow international monitors total and unimpeded access into and around Chechnya in order to investigate alleged atrocities and war crimes and to hold violators of human rights accountable" and "Grant international humanitarian organizations complete access into and around Chechnya in order to provide aid to Chechen civilians including the more than 400,000 displaced persons and refugees". This would mean a Russian surrender of sovereignty over the area.
To achieve those ends, ACPC organizes educational programs for the public, develops policy recommendations for lawmakers and collaborates with an international network of more than 400 activists, journalists, scholars and non-governmental organizations. 
For example, Tuesday, November 20, 2001, the Russian journalist Anna Politkovskaya,having recently published a book on the Russo-Chechen war entitled A Dirty War, was given great attention by the ACPC, giving her red carpet treatment when she held a lecture at Johns Hopkins University.
Luncheon for Anne Nivat, the Moscow correspondent of the French newspaper Liberation and long time worker for Radio Free Europe. Nivat was the only Western reporter who wandered freely and unescorted around Chechnya during the first five months of the war.
And on February 23, 2001, ACPC held a "candlelight vigil for peace in Checnhya" in front of the Embassy of the Russian Federation in Washington, DC. (one can just picture the grizzled old warmongers in the Committee lighting candles for peace).
