Pollution, global warming, urbanisation etc.

Yes. Chechnya is a belligerent province.
However,
After bombing the capital Grozny to look like Berlin 1945 Putin put a local mafia family in charge.
They can do whatever they like, arrest, make disappear, torture, kill, whatever, as long as they stop terrorism. And it works but not to 100%.
Chechnyans staying in Moscow are looked upon with suspicion and monitored.
Especially after the terrorist attacks on schools and theaters some decade ago.
The several "stan" countries in Central Asia are all Muslim-majority and so now and then some terrorrist comes out of there.
None of this is a threat to Russia or Putin though.

What does Chechnya, Russia, and Putin have to do with Trump's Budget possibly defunding some unneeded so-called science studies?

Trump's really helping Canada, by this attack on science, and his other shit.

Canada Welcomes Tech Companies That Are Spooked by Trump
It is a cruel irony for Trump, who has focused his presidency on keeping jobs in the U.S. But his policies do threaten to drive jobs north. Attempts to block visitors from certain Muslim-majority countries have infuriated tech companies that depend on international talent. One CEO, Google's Sundar Pichai, estimated that as many as 200 of his employees were abroad and potentially affected by Trump's policies, and he recalled them to the U.S. to avoid any border detentions. A few weeks later, his company announced it was investing $5 million in a Canadian government--backed artificial-intelligence lab.

Companies are also frustrated by Trump's decision not to immediately expand the number of H-1B visas, which allow firms to hire highly educated workers from abroad when no Americans qualify. Instead, in an April 3 memo, the Justice Department warned companies that they could be investigated and "vigorously prosecuted" if they didn't do a better job of finding passable Americans.

Some American officials recognize the political and economic threat Canada poses if Washington doesn't start responding. "The President should want entrepreneurs, or people who we are subsidizing with American tax dollars, creating jobs in the United States instead of taking our education and leaving," says Ro Khanna, a former Obama Administration official who now represents Silicon Valley in Congress. He's working with a bipartisan coalition--backed by tech--to change the work-visa programs by eliminating the lottery system, instead awarding visas to the most qualified foreign candidates with the highest salary offers.

I would be happy if Trump's policies would drive these liberals north to Canada.
That would greatly help to Make America Great Again, Greater Than Ever Before.

HalleluYah
Praise the Lord

Fantastic. Maybe the next generation of nuclear weapons will be created in Ajax, Ontario.

The problem with defending the "science" of the Western world that has existed since our "renaissance" is that it's mainly the creation of money-making gadgets. There are very important things that were removed from real "science" in the transition from the Arab World in which it originated, and the Europeans who stole it while plundering.

First of all, real science includes things like morality and philosophy. Without these things, you're just creating faddish items to enrich your own personal fortune.

Secondly, one of the important rules of real science was ... to do no harm. Our science is only respected when it creates objects that do lots of harm, like all our modern technologies that we are erasing humanity's existence with - both physical and social.

Our "science" doesn't add up to much if it leads to social isolation (TV, cellphones, suburbia, cars) or extinction (oil-dependent gadgets, nuclear weapons, ocean killing fishing techniques, chemical everything...).

Anyone with a brain should be spooked by what we call "science."
