NotesArtwork not dated - date estimated from news. News : Russia yesterday claimed that it had finally overwhelmed the last remaining Chechen defenders of Grozny, and predicted that the bulk of the army would soon be withdrawn from Chechenia to make way for Interior Ministry troops. "The army has routed the main armed bandit formations, destroyed a large number of heavy artillery guns and other hardware, encircled Grozny and seized strategic objects in the Chechen capital", a military spokesman said yesterday. An estimated 5,000 Chechen irregulars have reportedly regrouped in the town of Gudermes, 25 miles east of the city. Although sporadic fighting continued in the Chechen capital through the day, it did seem clear that Russia were pushing home their victory. Russian monitors, headed by Sergei Kovalyov, the Presidential Human Rights Commissioner, claimed yesterday that 25,000 civilians had been killed in Grozny in the two month Russian assualt.
