Summary/Abstract: The article examines a number of evidence pointing to the close contacts between the ancient Chechen and the proto-Bulgarian tribes, their interpenetration, and mutual participation in the ethnogenesis and formation of modern Chechens and Bulgariansduring the early Middle Ages. It also studies their participation in migration processes on the territory of the Eurasian steppes and mountains of the so-called Turan. An interdisciplinary analysis is carried out using historical, ethnographic, genetic, archeological, linguistic, and fieldwork data. The article also traces out the movement of the proto-Chechen and proto-Bulgarian communities from the Caucasus to Central Asia, as well as their reverse flow to the North Caucasus and further to the Black Sea region.
