So, be aware please that info-russ will be slow. If you have nothing REALLY urgent to broadcast, better wait with you posting until the beginning of August. I'll be looking into my mail more or less regularly from a remote terminal, so if there is anything urgent, I'll be broadcasting it, but please allow for a few days delay. Well, enjoy these "crazy, lazy days of summer", be good boys & girls, don't apply for DOD grants (let them better leave something for me:-), and generally, have a fun. If you see Alejandro Nalpak, give him "nashe vam s kistochkoi" (on poimyot, darom chto mexikanets, hotya kto ego znaet...) If you are slightly nonlinear, don't forget to drop your CV into a mailbox. (If you are too nonlinear, be careful: even a cubic Schreodinger collapses in 3D if no saturation is present:-).

Message-Id: Mime-Version: 1.0 Content-Type: TEXT/PLAIN; CHARSET=US-ASCII Content-Length: 2361 Status: O Dear Info-Russians (especially those of you who deal with Physics and Israel), Some time ago I met with an interesting guy who recently came to Israel from Erevan, Armenia as a tourist (actually as a refugee) and decided to stay here. As I understood he has a Ph.D. in Applied Physics and brought some interesting original work (abstract is enclosed). In Israel he has no friends and knows nothing about to whom and how to apply with his ideas and his profession. Unfortunately, I'm what is called a "systems analyst in information management" and by definition totally dumb in everything and especially in Physics ;-(, so I'm also unable to help him. His name is Ilya Bagdasaryan, he is 30, mother tongues are Armenian and Russian, knows English, currently studies Hebrew. If somebody has any information, suggestions, hints, tips, names, etc., or better, will find the following abstract to be of interest, please try to help him! He provides an impression of extremely bright and educated person and it will be a great pity if such a guy who also suffered a lot will end up as a street cleaner. Since he currently has no permanent living place with telephone it will be better to contact me directly via e-mail. Any help will be gratefully appreciated.

I would not apply to your help, folks, if I hadn't had a very special to business people scientific background. That is why I am on the air and not in the classified section of a local newspaper. I just graduated from the University of Washington, Seattle, WA with a Master's degree in Business Administration, emphasizing Marketing. Actually, the MBA was my 3rd degree -- I also have an M.S.(Chemistry), and Ph.D. in Biochemistry. My experience includes 7 years of working in Biochemistry and 4 years in Environmental Analytical Chemistry. Specifically, I worked with HPLC, HRGC and HRGC/MS analytical technique and my last article was published in Env. Sci.& Tech. 10(1992) while I was already studied business at the U of W. I would be happy to mail my resume to any interested party, either by e-mail or regular mail. Thanks a lot for your time, consideration, and any suggestions. Best regards. Vassily E.

Living at the West Coast, the Land of rugged individuals, we have a good excuse and justification to trail behind the Easterners. I volunteer to arrange (or more precisely, to coordinate) the meeting of InfoRussok/Russov in the Greater Los Angeles Area. It will be a no-host/no-guest gathering to meet your fellow-networkers and affiliated persons (please feel free to bring friends). No other agenda, program, responsibility or obligations (sounds like liberal Left, :=) uh ? - I promise no more political jokes). I will coordinate time and place (TBD = To Be Determined, depending on number of those who show interest to show up). We will meet either on 1. Saturday (27 August) night, or 2. Sunday (28 August) during the day. If the number of interested is small, then we will meet on Saturday (27 August) night indoors (apartment in Santa Monica). If the number of interested happens to be large ('small' and 'large' still remains to be defined), then we will meet on Sunday (28 August) outdoors. Two options for the outdoor meeting are being currently considered: a) parking/picnic area somewhere in local (to LA) mountains (for example, San Gabriel) - it is about 1 hour drive from the downtown LA; b) local beach (again within 1 hour drive from the downtown LA). Details of our meeting/party will be determined after your response is received. If you are interested to participate, please send me DIRECTLY - mikeg@lism.usc.edu - (do not send to the InfoRuss, pleeeeeeeeeeease) the following information: 1. Name 2. e-mail address 3. how many person are likely to attend (feel free to bring friends; please indicate also whether participation is "firm" or "possible"). Please do NOT send THIS TIME your suggestions/ideas on how/where to have this meeting/party. When first responses are received, I will send to those (ONLY) who responded the follow-on e-mail message and we will work out details.

Any suggestions or help translating the following message would be appreciated. Your son appears to be suffering from post-traumatic-stress-disorder.

Applicants with appropriate credentials may have their TOEFL and GRE examination fees, as well as the SUNY admission fee (presently, $50) paid by the fund.

I've again been away from the campus for couple weeks, and did not have remote access to my computer (my acquaintances both in Israel and France were not highly advanced computer hacks, mind you). I've got some IR-msgs accumulated during that period, and will be broadcasting them within next 24 hours. My special apologies to the people who tried to subscribe in my absence, and got no reply. Well, nobody is perfect, especially newsgroup coordinators, so you guys should take it as is, sigh. This summer was sort of slow moving (poor media has found nothing better than Simpson's case to hang on); as far as info-russ, there was some mishap (one msg got rebroadcasted a few times); what happened was that we were updating our system, and my mailer got mad at something, and kept chewing that msg; on August 15 there was a (quiet this time) birthday of info-russ (which is 3 years old now), with the number of subscribers hovering around 1000; the Russians keep selling uranium to any interested party; the Israeli have finaly decided to dump their headaches with providing civil services on the territories to the Palestinians, with the Palestinians suddenly realizing what they are stepping into: the Americans (us!) have stopped Cubans from having a little fun with no-visa free entrance to Miami beaches (hey, who is next? Russians? you guys without valid entrance visa, you better harry up!); the North Koreans decided to postpone nuking their near neighbors; what else? Well, enough for now. OK, info-russ is back, and so are my headaches. (Anybody willing to pick them up?:-) Anyway, see you around, guys.

John Copley ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- COOPERATIVE NEUTRON SCATTERING PROGRAM UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND / NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF STANDARDS AND TECHNOLOGY INSTRUMENT RESPONSIBLE SCIENTIST COLD NEUTRON RESEARCH FACILITY We anticipate an opening in late 1994 for a 2-3 year term appointee as Instrument Responsible Scientist at the Cold Neutron Research Facility attached to the 20 MW Research Reactor at the National Institute of Standards and Technology. We seek a scientist with a recent Ph.D. in experimental Condensed Matter Physics, Materials Physics, Materials Science, Chemistry, or a related discipline, with experience in condensed matter spectroscopy, to share responsibilities associated with the construction and operation of two neutron time-of-flight instruments: an operational Fermi chopper spectrometer, and a multi-disk chopper spectrometer that is presently under construction. These responsibilities include assisting visiting researchers in conducting experiments and reducing data, instrument testing and calibration, developing and documenting operating procedures, and planning and carrying out instrument improvements. These duties are intended to occupy no more than 75% of the instrument scientist's time, enabling him or her to conduct independent or collaborative research using time-of- flight instruments and other facilities at the CNRF and the NIST Reactor. Expressions of interest in this position should be sent immediately to one of the following: Dr. John R. D.

One may say, oh well, there are other newsgroups where one can do that; but than again, any internet veteran knows how most of them ended up in flames of flame wars. The most recent victim of these passions I believe was the list 'RUSSIA & her neighbors' (I guess, my good friend and really nice guy John B. Harlan, who used to be owner/coordinator of "RUSSIA", remains still puzzled over -- and smarting from -- qualities of "Russian soul"). Talk about Russian penchant for "cultural delights".

(ii) My friend in Paris, France, is in urgent need for the PC program "WinWord" (I hope I got the name right), which as I understand is a text-formating package running under Microsoft "Windows" on any MS-DOS PC. She needs to have it with English, French, and Russian fonts. She is just barely trying to make her living by translating technical literature. Can anyone who has the package, help her with it?

Graz, Austria, September 1994 My name is Heinrich Pfandl, I am a 40-year-old professor of Russian at the University of Graz, Austria. I am at present engaged in a three-year research project on certain aspects of the life-style (language, culture) of Russian- speaking people who left their home-countries from the 1970s to the present day. That is why I am trying to establish contact to Russian-speaking people who are living "abroad", in order to investigate some of the aspects of the so- called "third wave" of Russian (Soviet) emigration. As our E-mail net is providing me with the opportunity of reaching a great number of Russian scholars, I would like to use this channel of asking you for your assistance in my work. Let me entreat those of you who would be willing to approach their family or friends with a questionnaire on the above topic or even help them fill in the answers to the questions, to indicate their willingness to help me by sending me a "REPLY" (e.g. by using the words "I would like to help"). In case you prefer being sent the first questionnaire also by facsimile, would you please indicate your fax-number. Of course it would also be most interesting to have you complete a questionnaire about your own person, if you should wish to do so; I can even offer you a small sum of money for every questionnaire completed in recompense for your effort (depending on the volume of the questionnaire; I'll tell you more about this next time). Let me thank you in advance for your kind co-operation. I should be most grateful for your answer, I would highly appreciate your help. Dr. Heinrich Pfandl Weiherweg 12 A-8042 GRAZ, Austria, Europe.

According to ITAR-TASS, this action "created a threat to Russia's national security" that was only averted when the men on duty managed to switch the system over to its own power source. The Moscow official, Pavel Sinyuk, was accused of violating a 1994 government decision forbidding such action.

According to Russian TV's "Vesti" of 22 September, Yeltsin has decreed a sharp increase in former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev's monthly pension. According to the decree, from now on Gorbachev will receive retirement benefits equal to 40 minimum monthly salaries. Hitherto, Gorbachev received the sum agreed upon by the leaders of the new independent states on the eve of his resignation in November 1991--i.e., 4,000 rubles ($1.63 at today's exchange rate) a month. Despite Gorbachev's unpopularity in his native country, such niggardly treatment of the Nobel peace prize winner had been ridiculed in the media on more than one occasion. The reason for Yeltsin's change of heart--perhaps Gorbachev's triumph during his visit to Germany earlier this month or the approach of the Russian presidential elections and the prospect that Yeltsin himself could become a "former president" after 12 June 1996--remains a mystery. -- Julia Wishnevsky, RFE/RL Inc. >From INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Sat Sep 24 21:37:52 EDT 1994 Errors-To: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Sender: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Precedence: bulk Received: from ftp.std.com by smarty.ece.jhu.edu (5.61/1.18jrs) id AA29192; Sat, 24 Sep 94 21:37:49 -0400 Received: from world.std.com by ftp.std.com (8.6.8.1/Spike-8-1.0) id VAA10027; Sat, 24 Sep 1994 21:37:43 -0400 Received: by world.std.com (5.65c/Spike-2.0) id AA07868; Sat, 24 Sep 1994 21:37:42 -0400 Date: Sat, 24 Sep 1994 21:37:42 -0400 From: Dmitry@world.std.com (Dmitry Stavisky) Message-Id: <199409250137.AA07868@world.std.com> To: info-russ@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Subject: INFO-RUSS: Looking for Sharkovs Status: O I'm looking for Irene & Dmitry Sharkovs. Last time spotted in Oregon.

Status: O Dear IR-netties, OK, it is again this time of a season: "updated-list-is-coming". Why I keep broadcasting it? Well, at some point I came to realizing that (aside from monitoring coups in Moscow:-) one of the major significant things about info-russ is the list itself, long (now) and boring as it is. People find each other through the list; if any of you remember post-War "Joint" that helped people to find their relatives across the borders, you may appreciate it. Anyway, here you are. This INFO-RUSS net started on Aug. 15'91 with about 40 addresses. I am going to broadcast a new (27-th) updated list of names&addresses (900+ now) within next 24 hours. The last time I broadcasted it was in the end of May. The number of subscribers sort of stabilized now, although within last few weeks it suddenly went up (remember my theory about this trend having something to do with inflation in Russia?:-). As it became usual by now, I break the list into major domains of emigration: AMERICA (US+Canada), ISRAEL, and EUROPE (including UK). As my courtesy:-) to the "source" of emigration, I have an ex-USSR section. Finally, in order to simplify your search for friends in far lands, I have also the "faraway" sections for AUSTRALIA, South AFRICA, JAPAN, BRAZIL, MEXICO, and OTHERS. How I make new sections out of OTHERS? Well, I use the old Russian police rule:-): three persons constitute a crowd, so whenever I get 3 or more of you in any god-forsaken:-) place, I open up a section for it. And those of you who suspect that I simply help people "skinut'sya na troih", might be right too:-). However, folks, if I get even ONE subscriber from Arctica or Antarctica, I'll open a new section for such an exceptional emigre! I have a name ready for it: "MISHKA na SEVERE, MASHKA na YUGE"! (Any of you remember post-War ice-cream vendors at the rail-road stations all over Russia?) And I will put the rest of you, unlucky guys, under one sub-title: "Dan prikaz emu na zapad, ei v druguyu storonu...":-). And whenever the push comes to shove, this owner/coordinator (reluctantly though) recalls (as some of you learned from your own experience:-) the most universal and unified Russian geo-location, which is always a walking distance away, if you know what I mean:-). Be aware, please, it is now 66+ kb long.

My church is trying to start a Parish Partnership with a Russian Orthodox Church in St. Petersburg. To hold down expenses we thought it would be a good idea to communicate over the internet. We have made a few assumptions, and I want to confirm that they are correct assumptions before we get to far in the process. The assumptions follow. Please write back to me directly to tell me if my assumptions are correct, and enlighten me as to how to proceed from here. 1) We assume that an IBM clone will be better for the Russian church to work with than a Mac. 2) We assume that an XT will do. We realize it may not be ideal, but since all we want to do is communicate on the net we thought it would suffice. 3) We assume it will be easier to get someone here in the states to donate a used Xt and ship it to Russia than it would be to have our Russian friends try to find the resources to buy a new or used computer. 4) We assume that the net is more cost effective than the phone.

Maybe someone could answer me the following question, or suggest some other way of dealing with the problem: Is there a way to read/print on a Macintosh a WinWord file including a Russian (and non-rUssian) text, created with WinEast (software which assigns the Russian alphabet to the second half of an extended ASCII)? The problem is that on a Mac, a Russian font is just another font, i.e., coded with the first half of the ASCII table, and that the cyrillic alphabet is generally treated in a completely different fashion on a Mac or on a PC. I tried to pass through a UNIX machine, thinking that maybe I could edit a binary file obtained by KERMIT in binary mode, and systematically substitute the octets corresponding to the alphanumeric characters shifting them back to the first part of the table. (Hoping - I may be wrong - that in fact a Word file consists of a text and invisible command symbols, which I would leave unchanged). But so far I am lost between binary, MacBinary and other stuff, and I could not even make my Mac Word 6 read again a file which was created on a UNIX machine by KERMIT in binary mode, and then sent back by KERMIT to the same Mac, in the same mode.

So, the point is, I was wondering if anyone could give me any leads as to where I might find such a person: a Russian biking club phone number, or a cyclist you know from one of these countries who might have contacts back there... And of course, any advice is appreciated. Thanks for your help.

A friend of mine who is working for the Russian Ministry of Science and the Russian Academy of Sciences asked me to find out as much as possible about contract studies, in particular about the legal obligations of the parties, involved in the contract. What to do if the contract is terminated, if the results of the study have nothing to do with what was "ordered" initially, if one of the parties refuses to fulfill its obligations etc. Any form of the contract is also of interest. I received the industrial contract form and some comments from our office here, at the U of Minnesota, and will appreciate very much if you can provide me with the forms from your institutions and with any related information.

Citing "unofficial sources," the liberal Novaya ezhednevnaya gazeta carried on its 25 November cover page an article claiming that the Russian prosecutors are "cooking up" a political case against former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev. According to the daily, the inquiry underway in Moscow has been based on Gorbachev's address to the founding congress of the Russian Social-Democratic Union on November 1, in which Gorbachev had criticized the Yeltsin leadership and called for the early elections of all branches of the Russian government. Gorbachev's address allegedly has prompted the "Gorbophobic" Russian authorities to start an inquiry, aimed at charging Gorbachev under the infamous Article 70 of the Russian Criminal Code. This law gained the world-wide notoriety under its former title "Anti-Soviet Agitation and Propaganda" in the 1960s to early 1980s, until the Gorbachev leadership stopped arrests of political dissidents in that country. -- Julia Wishnevsky, RFE/RL, Inc. >From INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Fri Dec 2 21:31:38 EST 1994 Errors-To: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Sender: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Precedence: bulk Received: from berry.cs.brandeis.edu by smarty.ece.jhu.edu (5.61/1.18jrs) id AA01639; Fri, 2 Dec 94 21:31:36 -0500 Received: from june.cs.brandeis.edu by cs.brandeis.edu Fri, 2 Dec 1994 21:31:42 -0500 Received: by june.cs.brandeis.edu (8.6.8/UofC3.0) id VAA02318; Fri, 2 Dec 1994 21:30:52 -0500 Date: Fri, 2 Dec 1994 21:30:52 -0500 From: Leonid Kuvayev Message-Id: <199412030230.VAA02318@june.cs.brandeis.edu> To: info-russ@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Subject: INFO-RUSS: Searching for Larissa Winedinner Status: O Hi, netters.

The following is the message that CIAC received: --------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Here is some important information. Beware of a file called Goodtimes. | | | | Happy Chanukah everyone, and be careful out there. There is a virus on | | America Online being sent by E-Mail. If you get anything called "Good | | Times", DON'T read it or download it. It is a virus that will erase your | | hard drive. Forward this to all your friends. It may help them a lot. | --------------------------------------------------------------------------- THIS IS A HOAX. Upon investigation, CIAC has determined that this message originated from both a user of America Online and a student at a university at approximately the same time, and it was meant to be a hoax. CIAC has also seen other variations of this hoax, the main one is that any electronic mail message with the subject line of "xxx-1" will infect your computer. This rumor has been spreading very widely. This spread is due mainly to the fact that many people have seen a message with "Good Times" in the header. They delete the message without reading it, thus believing that they have saved themselves from being attacked. These first-hand reports give a false sense of credibility to the alert message. There has been one confirmation of a person who received a message with "xxx-1" in the header, but an empty message body. Then, (in a panic, because he had heard the alert), he checked his PC for viruses (the first time he checked his machine in months) and found a pre-existing virus on his machine. He incorrectly came to the conclusion that the E-mail message gave him the virus (this particular virus could NOT POSSIBLY have spread via an E-mail message). This person then spread his alert. As of this date, there are no known viruses which can infect merely through reading a mail message. For a virus to spread some program must be executed. Reading a mail message does not execute the mail message. Yes, Trojans have been found as executable attachments to mail messages, the most notorious being the IBM VM Christmas Card Trojan of 1987, also the TERM MODULE Worm (reference CIAC Bulletin B-7) and the GAME2 MODULE Worm (CIAC Bulletin B-12). But this is not the case for this particular "virus" alert. If you encounter this message being distributed on any mailing lists, simply ignore it or send a follow-up message stating that this is a false rumor. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- David Proulx Naval Computer Incident Response Team (NAVCIRT) E-mail: navcirt@nosc.mil Phone: STU-III COML: (202) 764-2601 DSN: 764-2601 Fax: (202) 764-0411 24 Hour Voice Mail Pager: 1-800-759-7243 Pin# 2023834 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- >From INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Sat Dec 10 00:21:18 EST 1994 Errors-To: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Sender: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Precedence: bulk Received: by smarty.ece.jhu.edu (5.61/1.18jrs) id AA20506; Sat, 10 Dec 94 00:21:17 -0500 Message-Id: <9412100521.AA20506@smarty.ece.jhu.edu> From: sasha@super.ece.jhu.edu (Alexander Kaplan) Date: Sat, 10 Dec 94 00:21:16 EST X-Mailer: Mail User's Shell (6.5.6 6/30/89) To: info-russ@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Subject:INFO-RUSS: good bye, good time... Status: O Dear IR-folks, As you do know by now, the scary story about ""good times" virus" that has been propagating all over the internet, turned out to be a hoax, sort of middle-of-winter-1-April joke -- I guess just to make your day brighter:-). Well, pretty harmless joke (not counting a lot of wasted bandwidth, -- but than again, have you ever seen a person who ever paid a penny out of his pocket for the internet?:-); it still remains a mystery to me who pays for it... (aside from an American taxpayer, of course -- you and me; don't know about you, but I do pay my taxes, sigh.) That virus warning has been propagated by a lot of meaning-well people (including me as a coordinator, another sigh:-), so I hope you don't harbor any bad feelings toward the people from whom you've received the msg first time (and second, and third, and...:-). I've received it from many sources by now: all of you are forgiven by me:-). BTW, the msg posted to info-russ actually was not originally intended by the person who sent it to me, for IR-broadcasting; it was MY initiative (of which I informed him) to post it on info-russ; so the responsibility is all mine (if any of you are looking for anybody to blame). I've received by now quite a few "denauncing" msgs each of which contains the same posting supposedly originated by CIAC (U.S. DOE's Computer Incident Advisory Capability); that posting claims that "THE "Good Times" VIRUS IS AN URBAN LEGEND", and a hoax. You have already received a copy of it in the preceding IR-posting. I decided to post the one forwarded to me by David Proulx, mostly because it has also sort of stamp of approval from another good source, Naval Computer Incident Response Team (NAVCIRT), of which Dave is a member (he is also your fellow info-russ subscriber). I want to thank all the people who sent me their copies of CIAC posting (from as near as my campus to as far as Australia). Furthermore, a couple of guys offered their own expert opinion that the downloading itself cannot result in virus activity; others sent me an official copy of the posting from the AOL administration with confirmation that it was a hoax, and the statement: "We have never had an occurrence of a virus being spread through simply reading email. It is possible, however, for an attached file to an email to carry a virus that could cause a problem. We cannot scan files in email for viruses as we do with files in public areas of the service since email represents private electronic communication. In order for the virus to spread to your computer, you would have to proactively select the attached file and download it to your hard drive. It is therefore advisable never to download attached files from an unknown sender." All right, guys, that's all for now. Hope this is the end of the story (at least this one:-).

Crowds of Ingush civilians including women and children continued thwarting the advance of Russian armored columns. They variously barricaded roads, placed themselves in front of advancing columns, siphoned off fuel from trapped tanks and APCs, disabled their tracks, or shot at and set some of them on fire, Reuters and AFP correspondents reported from two scenes of action on 12 December. They also reported Russian helicopter attacks on presumed sniper positions. The reports further suggested that Russian MVD soldiers were mostly passive and demoralized, and in some cases even seemed to sympathize with the local people. Russian headquarters charged via ITAR-TASS that some local residents were firing at the vehicles' fuel tanks and wheels. In a blustering statement released through Russian media the same day, Defense Minister Pavel Grachev charged that more than 30 armored vehicles had been set on fire and that some Russian soldiers had been dragged out of their vehicles by the Ingush. Grachev accused Ingushetia's Ministry of Internal Affairs of colluding with the civilian resistance and firing on the Russian troops. Grachev moreover accused Ingush President Ruslan Aushev (alongside whom he had fought in Afghanistan) of having "declared war on Russia." Aushev replied the same day that his people were showing their solidarity with the Chechen and accused some Russian troops of starting incidents by firing on civilians. -- Vladimir Socor, RFE/RL, Inc. . . . AND IN DAGESTAN. Russian invasion headquarters in the North Ossetian town of Mozdok said via its press service on 12 December that in both Ingushetia and Dagestan, residents in some villages were shooting at military columns and attempting to capture weapons, vehicles, and soldiers, ITAR-TASS and Interfax reported. In an area of Dagestan close to Chechnya's border, following the killing of several local people, residents blocked a Russian military column and captured at least 48, apparently MVD soldiers on 11 December--the number was updated to 59 on 12 December--including four officers ranging in rank from major to colonel. The villagers also captured at least four armored vehicles which they dispatched to Chechen headquarters in Grozny. Leaders in Dagestan interceded with the villagers for the release of the captives. Russian media reported on 12 December that most captives were being released. Russian headquarters charged Dagestan's police with passivity and said--in what may be an oblique accusation--that the Russian soldiers had "entered into talks" prior to their capture. -- Vladimir Socor, RFE/RL, Inc. YELTSIN ADDRESSES PARLIAMENT ON CHECHNYA. President Boris Yeltsin addressed both chambers of the Russian parliament on 12 December with a sarcastic letter, which aimed to show the implausibility of the government resolving the Chechen conflict through negotiations, as the parliament and public are demanding. Yeltsin put before the upper house, the Federal Assembly, these three rhetorical questions: (1) Should the Russian Federation negotiate the status of Chechnya as a part of Russia, and is the parliament ready to introduce into the constitution an amendment on the right of Chechnya to secede, in view of the possible domino effect this would have on other secession-minded republics within the Russian Federation? (2) Should Russia talk to Chechen President Dzhokhar Dudaev? (Yeltsin reminded parliamentarians that such a provision would necessitate the State Duma to formally recognize the 1991 election of Dudaev as president.) (3) Citing a 25 March 1994 State Duma statement on the Chechen problem, which stated the necessity of free elections as a precondition for talks with the Chechen leadership, Yeltsin asked the deputies how they would organize free elections in Chechnya considering the current situation. Yeltsin concludes his letter with a statement accusing the deputies of sensationalizing the tragedy of the Chechen people and the plight of Russia for future benefit in election campaigns. The text of Yeltsin's letter to parliament was read on Radio Rossii. -- Julia Wishnevsky, RFE/RL, Inc. MOST STATE DUMA FACTIONS AGAINST INVASION. On 12 December leaders of the State Duma discussed developments in Chechnya behind closed doors. Following the meeting, leaders of the parliament factions held a joint news conference at which it appeared that most of the bigger factions of the State Duma condemn the invasion, Russian TV "Vesti" reported. Those in opposition included four democratic parties (Democratic Choice, Yavlinsky-Boldyrev-Lukin bloc, pro-government Party of Russian Unity and Concord and the opposition Democratic Party of Russia), the Communist Party, the Agrarian Party, and Women of Russia. Only one faction, Vladimir Zhirinovsky's Liberal Democratic Party, approved of the invasion, as did two smaller groups of deputies--the nationalist Russian Path, led by Sergei Baburin and the Liberal Democratic 12 December Union, chaired by former Russian Finance Minister Boris Fedorov, "Vesti" reported. -- Julia Wishnevsky, RFE/RL, Inc. COMMUNISTS, DEMOCRATS RALLY IN PROTEST OF INVASION. A rally organized by the once pro-Yeltsin Democratic Russia movement that included the Russia's Choice party led by Egor Gaidar and the faction of the economist Grigorii Yavlinsky, was held on 11 December at Moscow's Pushkin Square two hours after news of Russian military intervention in Chechnya was reported. On 12 December, two demonstrations condemning the invasion were held at Pushkin Square simultaneously--one organized by democrats and addressed by a number of former liberal Russian and USSR ministers, and the other by the militant pro-communist Workers' Russia movement of Viktor Anpilov. Speakers at both rallies, including a member of Gaidar's party, Sergei Yushenkov, the head of the Duma Committee on Defense, urged that Yeltsin be impeached because of the invasion (the call was later rebuffed by Gaidar). Later that day, according to Russian TV newscasts, the Moscow mayor's office warned Gaidar that the rallies were illegal because the organizers had not received permission for the meeting as required by law. -- Julia Wishnevsky, RFE/RL, Inc. >From INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Tue Dec 13 20:58:12 EST 1994 Errors-To: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Sender: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Precedence: bulk Received: from ion.apana.org.au by smarty.ece.jhu.edu (5.61/1.18jrs) id AA12183; Tue, 13 Dec 94 20:57:22 -0500 Date: Wed, 14 Dec 1994 12:58:23 +0100 From: Al Kabaila Subject: INFO-RUSS: Chechnya To: info-russ Message-Id: Mime-Version: 1.0 Content-Type: TEXT/PLAIN; charset=US-ASCII Status: O "Lietuvos Aidas", a Lithuanian daily has published on December 12 an account of events in Chechnia, written by Gintaras Visockas in Grozny. The dayly was obtained by email from AGEP -- Algis E. Gedris aq106@cleveland.Freenet.Edu. My wife and I found the article rather touching and we decided to make a free translation of it and send it to whoever wishes to hear this cry of the oppressed: ----------------------------------------------------------------- Who rules Chechens, has the Caucasus in their hand, by Gintaras Visockas (December 12) I was woken up by the sound of muffled explosions in the vicinity, apparently still on the outskirts of Grozny. In the last few days I have learned to distinguish between the thunder of a tank and the explosions of bombs, dropped by planes. The aerial bombing produces more noise. Besides that, when the Russian planes appear over Grozny, the chechen anti-aircraft guns open their fire. This time the fire came from the tanks. The rumbling did persist. Every minute the city was shaken by a few thunderous hits. No doubt, all city's inhabitants were awakened. At that time I still did not know, but guessed that the attack of Grozny has begun. I made some coffee. Kept the gas burning, as inside was cold as always. Tried to write, usuccessfully. In my mind's eye stood the city of Vilnius, distant and unreachable. I tried to push aside all thoughts of my homeland. The thundering was increasing. The tanks were approaching the city. There was a knock on my door by my neighbour, a chechen who has a wife and two little girls. - Gintaras, the Russians are attacking. Judging by the sound, the battle rages near the road of Petroplavskaya. That's just a few kilometers away. I shared my coffee with the chechen. - You have yesterday spoken with the president. What did he tell you? Will we prevail? - Yes, the president will not waver, there is no reason to doubt, I replied. On Friday evening, when everybody in the city was talking about the imminent attack as unavoidable event, somebody spread a rumour that Dudaiev will give a press conference. No conference took place. An aid of the president came out to the corridor and said: Dudayev asked to tell you - Russians will not succeed to take the city. My early guest departed and I remained alone. The ominous rumbling intensified. I packed my belongings and hid vicepresident Zelimchan Jandarbiev's permit to telephone Vilnius. The dawn was breaking. City streets looked deserted. Through the window I see the wanderings of abandoned dogs. After every thunderous noise, they shudder and howl fearfully. The morning is sunny, warm. On such days the chechen men like to congregate near shashlyk-vendors: some for a yarn, others for a bite to eat. I had the feeling that in the streets of Dagestan the smell of fresh shashlyks will never emanate from the shops. By nine o'clock not only the windows were vibrating, but also the floor. Through the window I spotted eight chechen military men, armed with bazookas, running towards the Press Building. Through the street of Dagestan, towards the Government House, with their engines rumbling one after another passed five, with white paint marked tanks. Whose tanks are they? Russian? At that time I still did not understand, but all became clear very soon, when three of the tanks, after deafening explosions, were engulfed in fire. About 14:00 hrs (2 pm. - AK), the battle quitened somewhat. In the streets of Dagestan men were assembling. Some were telling that near the Press Building there were fierce battles and several Russian tanks are still standing there; others knew already, that in Katayama, where president's family lives, it was hot also. One chechen said he saw a few hundred meters from where we gathered a hit tank with a tank crewman lying besides in a pool of blood. On 16:00 hrs in the suburbs of Grozny the battle intensified again. When dusk set it, the firing continued. The Ostankino television announced "opposition's" victory, and it quitened again. People could not believe their ears: such an arrogant lie! The buildings in the Freedom pr. are windowless. I am wading through piles of glass. In the Independence sqare, in front of the Government Building, burns a bus and a tank. The top of the tank is thrown a few hundred meters and is stuck into the ground. Above the tank on the conduits of the tram, hangs half of a human body with the head. As I soon ascertained myself, similar scenes were seen in other city streets. In the group of soldiers I recognised a personal guard of Dudayev. - You are still here? - asked he, surprised. Information Minister Movladz Udugov could hardly hide his feeling of relief that he was radiating. He even asked, what did I came for. Order immediately telephone talk to Lithuania. After a few seconds, he lifted the official telephone receiver and added: - Connect us to Vilnius without delay. At first Vilnius would not believe, that Grozny was not taken, because they already had heard the lies of Otankino. On Sunday Grozny was flooded with journalists. Together with them I saw Russian prisoners -- dirty, dishevelled, tattered. A major, a capitan, two leutenants, six regular army soldiers, trained in the famous Taman and Kantemir divisions. They thought, that the people of Grozny are sick ant tired of Dudayev's policies and consequently that the Russians will be met with open arms and bouquets of flowers. Found in the tanks was not only amunition. In some of the tanks, the chechens found parade uniforms, vodka, food, condoms. For the "pleasant time" in Chechnia's capital it was promised 6 million rubles each: three immediately, and three after the victory. I did not feel neither sympathy, nor hate towards the Russian soldiers. Had hardly a chance to talk to them -- the speed-speach of Moscow journalists ovewhelmed. Don't they beat you? Humiliate you? Feed you? What could we tell your family? When Aleksander Yevtushenka ("Komsomolskaya Pravda") turned to the capitan, "Andrusha, what can I tell your wife?", the chechen guard could not contain himself: - Tell her, that in Andrusha's pockets we found American made condoms... Abu Arsumkajev, the head of the presidents guard, also spoke-up. He told us, journalists, when he let us meet the "conquerors" of Grozny: 'The so called "oposition" has not shown mercy to any of Dudayev's supporters. Our people are tied to a tree and torn to bits alive - fed to hungry dogs'. The head of president's guard is not very accurate: after all one chechen did return to Grozny. That's the general procurator Umar Imaiev. Actually, he returned all grey haired. In the summer he was still a young man, but now he is ten years older and developed a speach defect. The Russians attempted to force the general procurator to "reveal Dudayev's financial machinations". The procurator refused to lie. Chechens are not inclined to talk about the suffering, endured in enemy's capture or about the pain of a loss of a close-one. I heard from a person other than Aslan Maschadov, how cruelly were dealt with Machadov's brothers. One of them was crushed by a tank. A relative of the president was burned alive. Chechens can only be destroyed. Will Russia determine to take such a step? First - russification, in 1807 was planed to displace chechens from their native lands, by a Russian official Loficki. In 1852 Tsar Nicholas II spoke himself of the absolute need to russify the chechens. In 1856 general Milutin decided to re-settle chechens in the Don region. In 1863 Russian generals, Karcov, Melikov and Musukundov argued how they could be moved to the empire of Turkey and how to give their lands to the kozakhs. In 1865 April-May it was succeeded to deport 4097 families (about 20 thousand chechens). This fact is recorded in 1925 publication in Moscow of a book with a long name: "Dielo kanceliariji nacalnika Terskoj oblasti po sekretnomu stolu o preseleniji tuzemcov Terskoj oblasti v Turciju". In 1869 yet another plan to liquidate the chechens saw the light of day. It's author - baron, linguist, general Piotr Uslar, who wrote that in Caucasus met arab and slav civilisations and Russians will never be able to rest, if they don't prevail over chechens. Russians tried to conquer chechens also in 1944. All were deported to the steppes of North Kasachstan (the chechen men at the same time were serving in Soviet armed forces -- they fought Germans). Those who survived, after several years returned home and bit-by-bit pushed back Russian colonists, who at first would not allow the chechens to use chechen language, even when conversing between themselves. Chechens were not subdued, but lost a lot of people. "If it was not for the war with slavs over the last three hundred years, we would be ten million. Now - only one and two hundred thousand. This year Yelcin will, no doubt, endeavour that our numbers are further reduced", -- these are the spoken thoughts of an employee of Chechenpress. All that notwithstanding, today the fate of Caucasus is being determined. Who rules Grozny, has in their hands all Caucasus. These words I have heard many times. There is a lot of truth in that. The truth would be stronger if today there were five times more chechens. On Tuesday, Dudayev spoke with journalists. At that moment Russian planes started bombing again. On the floor first fell the Russian journalists. These images were captured by Chechen TV: at the feet of president Dudayev, general procurator Imayev and foreign minister Samsudin, lay frightened Russian journalists. Did they reflect on what at the same moment is felt by chechen women and children? Wednesday, after three days have elapsed since the storming of Grozny, the security service chief of Chechenia sought me out and said: - Return home. Chechens are being rounded up in Moscow. Russians want to exchange them to captured tank crews. For the head of a Lithuanian, heaven knows what the Moscow may demand; or they will force you to tell the world that which never happened. I got ready to travel in an hour. I still remember warm, sunny morning. It seemed that all city prays to Allah. Prayed not only in the Independence square assembled chechens. In offices, on prayer matts, words of prayer were said by ministers, officers, president. After the prayers, towards the mountains moved tens of busses and cars with women and children, whilst to the city flooded volunteers from villages of the district, Dagestan, Ingushia, Kabarda... I saw no fear in their faces. As if war was a normal state of affairs. In a few hours, Grozny became a city of men. I recalled the suggestions of certain politicians in Lithuania that the letting of the blood in North Caucasus is happening because chechen clans are arguing about the division of wealth and government. I could not say goodbye to friends. The chechen who looked after me did not want anyone to see that somebody is leaving. Who knows what might happen. He drove up to the very door. At that time the road to Ingushia was not controlled by the Russian army, I had hidden my Lithuanian passport and journalist's certificate. We agreed: if someone were to stop us, I am a Russian and live in Nazrane. At the border of Chechnya and Ingushia we were met by an Ingush. Changed cars. On the road nobody stopped us. In Nazrane I spent almost two whole days, because at that time Ingush conscripts were being moved to Moscow. I could not walk in the city. Even when neighbours dropped in, I was locked in a far away room. Until the plane landed in Moscow, I had no news about Chechnya. The show windows of Moscow sported Christmas trees with flashing lights, smiling Old Man Frost, good hearted Snow Whites.

SIGNIFICANCE: The decision to escalate the crisis was taken for reasons more of institutional rivalry in Moscow than the Chechen situation. ANALYSIS: Moscow's decision to send troops into Chechnya had little to do with the situation there: -- A ceasefire had been agreed with Defence Minister Pavel Grachev, and further talks were scheduled. -- The clan leaders who really run Chechnya had reportedly told Dudayev to reach agreement with Moscow on wide autonomy for Chechnya in return for Chechen recognition of Russian sovereignty. The lobbies and individuals behind the decision to send Russian troops into Chechnya were making military and political calculations which had more to do with institutional rivalries in Moscow than with events in the Caucasus. Military calculations. The 40,000 Russian troops now in Chechnya enjoy an overwhelming numerical superiority and could seize Grozny and other major towns. However, few of them are first-echelon regulars or specialist counter-insurgency troops, and they would be likely to achieve these aims only at substantial cost to themselves and the local population. Their ability to pacify the countryside is very much in doubt. The bulk of the Russian force now in Chechnya comes from the Interior Ministry's Interior Troops (VV) and Special Motorised Police Battalions (SMBM). Neither are particularly highly trained or well equipped. Chechen regular troops number some 3,000 men. Irregulars make up the bulk of the Chechen forces, numbering perhaps 30,000, either in the volunteer Self-Defence Units or the police Patrol-Guard Units, which are largely made up of clan gunmen who have been issued state licences. If talks fail, Dudayev's strategy will be to embroil the Russians in street fighting in Grozny and then, if necessary, take to the hills to wage a guerrilla war against Russian patrols and supply lines. The internal security troops and second-echelon regular units which have been deployed to Chechnya lack the training, professionalism and morale which such a war would require. The experience of the first two days of intervention highlights the problem: -- Two Russian platoons surrendered to the Chechens rather than fight in a conflict which they did not understand and in which they had no stake. -- Ingush gunmen were able to ambush a Russian column headed for Chechnya. They destroyed a dozen personnel carriers, damaged a dozen more and held up another 40 for several hours. -- Russian forces moving into Chechnya from Dagestan also met with resistance which was not easily overcome. Political calculations. The blunders of the last three days are in part a result of the fact that the Ministry of Defence (MO) has been marginalised in the operation. Plans for intervention were finalised in the border town of Mozdok at a meeting attended by FSK chief Sergei Stepashin, a senior VV commander and Deputy Prime Minister Nikolai Yegorov, who has responsibility for nationalities policy (see OADB, December 9, 1994, III). Grachev failed to appear. The use of SKVO forces rather than paratroopers and other elite units is a reflection of MO non-involvement. Grachev, himself an ex-paratrooper, resisted efforts to deploy his prize units but could not prevent the increasingly independent SKVO commanders from working with the FSK. The conduct of the SKVO command is a further symptom of the army's loss of cohesion. The timing and manner of the operation suggests that it was launched in order to forestall an attempt by Dudayev to mollify Moscow. At a meeting of Chechnya's principal clan leaders, Dudayev was told to replace his assertions of Chechen independence with proposals for autonomy within the Russian Federation. This would have represented a major concession on Dudayev's part, although it would also have ensured that Chechen criminal organisations continued to enjoy the benefits of operating within Russia's borders. Hardliners in Moscow, however, chose not to wait for the outcome of the talks scheduled for yesterday, for two reasons: 1. President Boris Yeltsin, having been encouraged by his closest aides to take a tough line on Chechnya, believed that his personal prestige was at stake. He was reportedly encouraged in this belief by the increasingly powerful Aleksandr Korzhakov, commander of the Presidential Security Service (PSB). Korzhakov believes he cannot lose: -- If Chechnya is promptly subdued, he and the PSB will share in the credit for this achievement. -- If not, the ensuing threat of Chechen terrorism will justify generous additional funding for the PSB and other internal security bodies, as well as the expansion of their powers and functions. 2. The last significant meetings with Dudayev were handled by Grachev. A prompt Chechen capitulation on the issue of independence would have redounded to his credit. The internal security forces, keeping the 1995 budget in mind, were keen to ensure that the MO did not reap the benefits of a settlement in Chechnya. Moreover, Grachev's many personal enemies have no desire to see his political fortunes recover. The hardliners backing the intervention are themselves anxious to reach agreement with Dudayev and thereby to avoid having to take Grozny and other towns by force. However, they are determined that such an agreement be concluded at a time and in a manner which suits their budgetary and political interests, and which gives at least the appearance of strong action achieving the desired result. Implications. The Chechnya intervention raises three major risks: 1. Protracted conflict. Regardless of what concessions are extracted from Dudayev or any other Chechen leader, the effective reimposition of Moscow's authority will require not a paper treaty but a forcible reimposition of it on the clans in the countryside and the gangs in the cities. Chechen terrorism in other parts of Russia also remains a very real potential danger. Threats of attacks on Russian nuclear power plants have already led to tighter security. Moreover, it is unclear whether Dudayev will be prepared to make the concessions which might have been on offer in the absence of an invasion. Giving way now could simply eliminate his usefulness to the clan elders and would in any case raise the risk of his being outflanked by the Afghan Mujahedin and Turkish 'Grey Wolves' who have come to Chechnya both to fight Russia and to campaign for a strict Islamic state. 2. Regional tensions. There is considerable opposition to the Russian move in other republics of the federation, especially in Chechnya's neighbours in the North Caucasus. Russian units have come under attack in Dagestan and Ingushetia, and volunteers from across the region are moving to join the Chechens. 3. Backlash at home. The hardliners are calculating that the political uproar in Moscow will be short-lived. Criticism from parliament and from most of the major parties has been sharp, but it is not clear to what extent public opinion is outraged or how long Yeltsin's parliamentary opponents will concern themselves with Chechnya. Chechen criminal activities have made them unpopular among ordinary Russians, and Dudayev certainly has few, if any, supporters in the political elite. However, if Russians begin to die in Chechnya in significant numbers or if Chechen terrorism begins to make itself felt in Russia proper, then the intervention could quickly become a major political liability. CONCLUSION: To succeed, the intervention must bring Chechnya into line quickly and at low cost. If Russian forces are unable to extract the necessary concessions without entering Grozny, then Moscow faces the risk of becoming embroiled in a long and costly struggle.

Status: O SPILLOVER EFFECT IN CAUCASUS. A delegation of the Confederation of the Peoples of the Caucasus handed to the Russian Duma's First Vice Chairman, Mikhail Mityukov, in Moscow a message demanding an end to hostilities and the withdrawal of Russian troops from Chechnya. The Confederation's parliament chairman, Ali Aliev, warned on Russian TV the same day that unless stopped now, the hostilities will spread far beyond Chechnya. According to Interfax on 14 December, Aliev issued instructions for the setting up of offices to induct volunteers in Nalchik (Kabardo-Balkaria), Maykop (Adygei), Cherkessk (Karachay-Cherkessia), Vladikavkaz (North Ossetia), Nazran (Ingushetia), Makhachkala (Dagestan), Sukhumi (Abkhazia), and Nazran (Ingushetia). Central headquarters are to be set up in Grozny and in Nalchik under the Confederation's Adygei Vice President, Amin Zekhov. In Dagestan, pro-Chechen villagers who had seized 59 Russian soldiers released only some of their captives, contrary to earlier reports. The Russian government's press center charged in a communique on 14 December that "the Dagestani leaders are not making any effort to resolve the issue." Dagestani residents also continued blocking a Russian MVD armored unit en route to Chechnya; the unit has gone into a "perimeter defense posture," Interfax and ITAR-TASS reported on 14 December. Special measures were ordered to reinforce security at key economic and transport installations in Dagestan and to secure Dagestan's borders against the penetration of arms and armed groups from Chechnya. The republic's government appealed to the population "not to follow those who by words or deeds provoke the people into unleashing a new Caucasus war." In Ingushetia's capital Nazran, a mass rally on 14 December protested against the use of force in the Caucasus and demanded "a stop to the murder of Chechen civilians and bombing of Chechen settlements," Interfax reported. Ingush President Ruslan Aushev told Moscow's Independent TV the same day that his people could not forget how the same Russian armored columns "and the same Defense Minister" assisted in the destruction of Ingush settlements and the expulsion of Ingush population from North Ossetia in 1992. He called for "peaceful talks" with Dudaev and "a prompt end to bloodshed." Continuing fighting would "drag in [people from] the neighboring republics, they are already beginning to move." The Ingush authorities charged that drunken Russian soldiers had beaten up the Ingush Minister of Health to death and had also killed one fellow-Russian soldier and injured two others, Interfax reported. Kabardo-Balkaria's parliament and government, evidently caught between two fires, appealed in a joint statement for a Russian-Chechen negotiated settlement while warning the population against heeding "statements that could give rise to armed conflicts in other parts of North Caucasus." Kabardo-Balkaria's President Valerii Kokov decreed a temporary ban on rallies, demonstrations, and pickets in the republic. In Abkhazia's capital Sukhumi, a mass rally was held to express solidarity with Chechnya. Independent TV reported that at this rally and elsewhere in Abkhazia, men were offering services as volunteers for Chechnya; and that Russian forces in Abkhazia were reinforcing its borders to intercept any volunteers. In Baku, a leader of Azerbaijan's opposition Grey Wolves party told Interfax on 14 December that about 270 Grey Wolves had gone to Chechnya as volunteers. -- Vladimir Socor, RFE/RL, Inc. CRITICAL VOICES. Concern over the invasion's spillover effect was voiced, among many others, by Boris Yeltsin's former ethnic affairs adviser Galina Starovoitova, currently co-chairman of Democratic Russia, on Russian Radio on 14 December. Besides condemning Yeltsin's "crude use" of "notorious tools of imperial policy," Starovoitova predicted that the military intervention in Chechnya will "produce mistrust of the center's policy and centrifugal tendencies in Tatarstan, Bashkortostan, Yakutia, Karelia," and other parts of the Russian Federation. Speaking from a military point of view, Lt.-General Aleksandr Lebed in Komsomolskaya pravda of 14 December warned "our state leaders and their all-wise Defense Minister" that they will achieve "a Pyrrhic victory" in Chechnya. In separate statements quoted by the 14 December Financial Times, Lebed and Deputy Defense Minister Col.-General Boris Gromov, both of whom fought in Afghanistan, warned that the intervention in Chechnya could turn into an Afghanistan-type protracted war. -- Vladimir Socor, RFE/RL, Inc. RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT BROADENS WARNINGS BEYOND CHECHNYA. Appearing on Ostankino TV on 13 December, Prime Minister Viktor Chernomyrdin threatened to hold the Chechen and Ingush leaders responsible for "pushing [their] people under the tanks" of the Russian invasion force. (Correspondents' reports from the field indicate that the crowds seeking to block Russian tanks act spontaneously). Defense Minister Pavel Grachev, also on television, accused Ingush President Ruslan Aushev of having "declared war on Russia." In his TV appearance, Chernomyrdin along with First Deputy Prime Minister Oleg Soskovets at a 14 December briefing cited by Interfax, and Federal Counterintelligence Service First Deputy Director Anatolii Safonov in the governmental Rossiiskaia gazeta of 14 December all charged that "thousands" of fighters from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Azerbaijan, Ukraine, and the Baltic States had joined the Chechen forces. (No known independent source has reported on such fighters in Chechnya). The claim may be designed as an excuse for sending in additional Russian forces, or pressuring some of the countries named. Adding a fresh justification for the operation, Federation Council chairman Vladimir Shumeiko described it to Interfax on 14 December as a "peacekeeping mission, to separate the warring sides," such as Russia is undertaking in CIS states. -- Vladimir Socor, RFE/RL, Inc. >From INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Thu Dec 15 14:10:55 EST 1994 Errors-To: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Sender: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Precedence: bulk Received: from andromeda.rutgers.edu by smarty.ece.jhu.edu (5.61/1.18jrs) id AA24506; Thu, 15 Dec 94 14:10:51 -0500 Received: by andromeda.rutgers.edu (5.59/SMI4.0/RU1.5/3.08) id AA25582; Thu, 15 Dec 94 14:10:49 EST Date: Thu, 15 Dec 94 14:10:48 EST From: Nikolay Miougue To: info-russ@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Cc: mugue@andromeda.rutgers.edu Subject: INFO-RUSS: chechen Message-Id: Status: O Folks, This is what I've got from Moscow and find it worth to be posted.

Poetomu poezda organizovanno grabili na industrial'noi osnove, a gazoprovod ugrojali vzorvat', esli chto. Estestvenno, neskol'ko let Moskve bylo ne do togo.

V rezul'tate Chechnia tri goda byla velikolepnoi dyroi v granice, cherez kotoruiu shli i den'gi, i orujie, i proch. Estestvenno, i ugolovnyh prestupnikov ona ne vydavala. V poslednee vremia byli prodelany sravnitel'no razumnye deistviia: i jelezku i gazoprovod produblirovali v obhod Chechni. Odnako nikakogo podobiia granicy ne vozveli. Avtobusy hodiat. Vse by nichego, no v sviazi s ocheredym krizisom v obshem bardake voznik zakaz na 'malen'kuiu pobedonosnuiu voinu'. Snachala za delo vzialos' ex-KGB (vnutrenniaia polovina).

K sojaleniiu, tut je okazalos', chto edinstvennaia figura, sposobnaia kak-to konkurirovat' s Dudaevym - Ruslan Hasbulatov. Eta kandidatura po poniatnym prichinam ne poshla, poetomu nachal'nikom 'oppozicii' sdelali nekuiu nevzrachnuiu figuru iz zahudalogo roda - nekto Avtorhanov (naverno, rodstvennik tomu). Uje poluchilos' ne slava bogu. Pravda, udalos' peremanit' odnogo populiarnogo bandita, kotoryi chego-to ne podelil s Dudaevym. Tak chto shansy byli. 'Oppozicii' otkryli neogranichennyi kredit den'gami, orujiem i tehnikoi. Daje neskol'ko boevyh vertoletov s ekipajami podarili. No poka 'oppoziciia' raskachivalas' i delila portfeli, Dudaev okazalsia neplohim taktikom, darom chto letchik. On vnezapno brosil vse sily (okolo 10 tankov) na otriad etogo samogo bandita i v tiajelom boiu razbil ego nagolovu.

YELTSIN EXTENDS CHECHEN ULTIMATUM. In an address to the Chechen people transmitted by ITAR-TASS late on 15 December, Russian President Boris Yeltsin extended by 48 hours the deadline (due to expire at midnight on 15 December) for all armed groups in Chechnya to lay down their weapons, adding that he would consider such a ceasefire " a demonstration of good will and a first step towards the restoration of peace and legality" in Chechnya. ....After a brief period of calm during the morning, fighting resumed during the afternoon of 15 December as Russian tanks with air and artillery support continued their advance on Grozny from the north; the advance was halted when some 70 Russian tanks and armored vehicles ran into swampy ground, ITAR-TASS reported. -- Liz Fuller, RFE/RL, Inc. SITUATION AROUND GROZNY. Late on 15 December the chief of Russia's Federal Counterintelligence Service, Sergei Stepashin, announced that "it is necessary to leave open a corridor for the possible evacuation of the population from Grozny." The announcement, made at invasion headquarters in Mozdok via ITAR-TASS, could only strengthen Chechen resolve stemming from the memory of the 1944 deportations of the Chechen and Ingush--a memory also recently reinforced by the 1992 ethnic cleansing of the Ingush from North Ossetia with Russian military support. Also in Mozdok, Russian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Nationality Affairs Nikolai Egorov, who acts as Yeltsin's special representative for Chechnya, told ITAR-TASS on 15 December that Yeltsin may impose a state of emergency in Chechnya in connection with an impending operation of "disarming the unlawful armed groups." ..... On the same day the government's press center belatedly acknowledged that Russian fighter-bomber planes had been used against Chechen positions since 13 December. The communique complained that Chechen fighters were using hit-and-run tactics and taking cover amid the civilian population. Official communiques from Moscow and from invasion headquarters in Mozdok on 14 and 15 December also accused Chechen fighters of attacking Russian units said to perform humanitarian missions and of downing Russian helicopters said to carry aid goods. ... -- Vladimir Socor, RFE/RL, Inc. .....The Director of the Russian Foreign Ministry's Humanitarian Affairs Department, Vyacheslav Bakhmin, admitted at a briefing reported by Russian Radio that "as the federal authorities restore the constitutional order in Chechnya, violations of human rights, including the right to live, will occur. Such violations are absolutely unavoidable," he said. -- Vladimir Socor, RFE/RL, Inc. RUMBLINGS IN THE CAUCASUS . . . Villagers in Ingushetia continued erecting "serious obstacles" in the way of rear sections of the Russian troop column headed for Grozny, Egorov complained to ITAR-TASS on 15 December. Ingush president Ruslan Aushev told a media briefing in Moscow the same day that Ingushetia is sending humanitarian aid to Chechnya. Aushev denied that his republic is also providing military aid but stressed that "no one can check the participation of Ingush in the military conflict" on the side of their close relatives, the Chechen. Aushev called for the withdrawal of Russian troops from Chechnya as a prerequisite to any political settlement, and condemned "negotiations at gunpoint." He held both Yeltsin and "those who advised him" personally responsible for the turn of events. In Dagestan, villagers continued blocking the advance of the Russian troop column into Chechnya, ITAR-TASS reported on 15 December. A pro-Russian parliamentary deputy from Dagestan told Radio Mayak on 14 December that "a growing number of young people in his republic are acquiring weapons and preparing to come to the aid of Chechnya." North Ossetia's Deputy Prime Minister Georgii Kozaev--representing a republic traditionally aligned with Moscow--complained in Pravda on 15 December that Russia's "irresponsible and adventurist policy" was fanning anti-Russian sentiment throughout the region, jeopardizing the Russian Federation's integrity, and playing into the hands of Islam. Even loyal North Ossetians objected to the use of their territory as a staging area for the Russian military operation, he said. -- Vladimir Socor, RFE/RL, Inc. KOVALEV ARRIVES IN GROZNY. On its third attempt, the human rights delegation led by Russia's ombudsman, Sergei Kovalev, arrived in Grozny on 15 December. Kovalev said that he planned to try to convince Dudaev to compromise with Russian authorities and scored an early success when soon after arriving Dudaev agreed to talk to the delegation without any preconditions. Kovalev was earlier prevented from going to Chechnya aboard the personal aircraft of Petr Deinekin, the commander of the Russian Air Force. Kovalev's team, along with another group of State Duma deputies led by General Nikolai Stolyarov, then made another attempt to reach Grozny via Mozdok in North Ossetia, but the plane was sent back. The human rights delegation finally made it on an Aeroflot flight to Mineralnye Vody in the neighboring Stavropol region and then to Grozny with the help of Ingush authorities. The delegation includes three Duma deputies--Mikhail Molostvov of Russia's Choice, Valerii Borshchov of Yabloko, and Leonid Petrovsky of the Communist Party--as well as Oleg Orlov, the expert of the anti-Stalinist "Memorial" society. -- Julia Wishnevsky, RFE/RL, Inc. >From INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Fri Dec 16 09:27:56 EST 1994 Errors-To: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Sender: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Precedence: bulk Received: from sunset.ma.huji.ac.il by smarty.ece.jhu.edu (5.61/1.18jrs) id AA01032; Fri, 16 Dec 94 09:27:52 -0500 Received: by sunset.ma.huji.ac.il id AA27783 (5.65c/HUJI 4.152 for info-russ@smarty.ece.jhu.edu); Fri, 16 Dec 1994 16:27:28 +0200 Date: Fri, 16 Dec 1994 16:27:28 +0200 From: Gennady Grabarnik Message-Id: <199412161427.AA27783@sunset.ma.huji.ac.il> To: info-russ@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Subject: INFO-RUSS: russian true type fonts for windows Status: O Maybe someone may recomend me how to find russian true type fonts for windows Thanks in advance, G.Grabarnik >From INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Fri Dec 16 15:33:27 EST 1994 Errors-To: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Sender: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Precedence: bulk Received: from roo.INS.CWRU.Edu by smarty.ece.jhu.edu (5.61/1.18jrs) id AA01505; Fri, 16 Dec 94 15:33:23 -0500 Received: (dxf10@localhost) by roo.INS.CWRU.Edu (8.6.8.1+cwru/CWRU-2.1-bsdi) id PAA11180; Fri, 16 Dec 1994 15:33:21 -0500 (from dxf10) Message-Id: <199412162033.PAA11180@roo.INS.CWRU.Edu> Date: Fri, 16 Dec 1994 15:33:21 -0500 From: dxf10@po.CWRU.Edu (Dmitry Fyodorov) To: info-russ@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Subject: INFO-RUSS: universities affiliated with MSU Status: O Dear netters: I know there are several universities in the United States affili- ated with Moscow State University.

Now I am sending it to the addresses in the areas close to Chechnya in hope that you will share with us information about the situation in Chechnya. I am an organizer and coordinator of an e-mail news-list INFO-RUSS, which links the community of refugees and emigrants from ex-USSR in the USA and worldwide. I has more than 1000 subscribers in the USA, Canada, Israel, all the major European countries, England, Australia, South America, Japan, etc. (By the way, on INFO-RUSS, we also use Russain language, tak chto vy mozhete otvechat' mne po russki, ispolzuya angliskie bukvy takim zhe obrazom kak ya pishu eti strochki.) On the day of invasion of Russian military into Chechnya, I posted a message to INFO-RUSS inquiring information about events in Chechnya. So far we've got quite a few reports about the situation, and reviews about history of the the conflict. But NONE of the came from the most relevant sources -- from Chechnya. We need to hear from you; we need to hear YOUR part of the story. Would you please provide us with witness's reports, any report from the people who were directly involved into any clashes with Russian army, or people who personally witnessed what is happening with civil population (ANY civil population, either Chechens or Russians or any other), or description of how people tried to stop tanks with their bodies, of what happened with soldiers on both side of the front, of any damages to people's homes, villages, situations with refugees from the area, with violations of human rights, about volunteers from other Caucasian areas coming to help Chechnya, etc. We would be interested to hear stories both from Chechens and Russians, from Muslims and Christian, from any other community in that area, and from soldiers (on both sides of the tranches...) My main task, the way I see it, is to let the world -- or at least my subscribers -- know what is happening in reality, and from all the parties involved, not just from one party, or one country, or one group of population. The more people know, the easier it will be for them to appeal to authorities in their respective countries for help. The first victim of any war is the truth. Help us to help you. At this point, governments of many countries (including the USA), prefer to pay no attention to Russian tanks moving into your country. It has happened before (like with Czechoslovakia), it is happening again. Have your voice and your witness's accounts heard. There is no guarantee it would help; but without your speaking out, it will be for sure much worse...

The one Russian column approaching Grozny continued using artillery and aerial power against Chechen positions and residential areas as well as engaging Chechen forces in tactical clashes, Russian and Western media reported. Moscow's official toll of 16 Russians killed through 16 December is generally deemed understated. The Russian side has yet to acknowledge the Chechen civilian casualties, estimated to number in the hundreds. One major official justification for the intervention is to protect the physical security of the Chechens, in their capacity as Russian Federation citizens, in connection with the "inter-Chechen conflict." -- Vladimir Socor, RFE/RL, Inc. RUSSIAN GENERAL: LAW AND HUMANITY ABOVE ORDERS. On 15 and 16 December Major-General Ivan Babichev, commander of one of the three Russian columns moving toward Grozny, publicly announced that he was halting the advance and would refuse to use force against civilians. The military operation against Chechnya was unlawful and inhumane, and any orders to attack the population or residential areas would be "criminal," Babichev said. He made the statements to Russian and Western journalists and in a fraternizing encounter with a predominantly female Chechen peasant crowd astride his column's path. He also strongly implied that a nighttime attack by unidentified forces against his column had probably been orchestrated by Russian security services in order to provoke an attack on the Chechen. Officers from various elements of the column told the press that they had prepared letters of resignation from the military and would submit them if ordered to attack. Comprised of several hundred tanks and armored vehicles, elements of a motor rifle division and of the elite Pskov paratrooper division, MVD units, and other elements, Babichev's column had refrained from challenging civilian crowds thwarting its advance through Ingushetia and Chechnya toward Grozny. The column's head is still reported 35 kilometers from Grozny and its rear still in Ingushetia. Another column seems to be marking time on the Dagestan-Chechnya border. -- Vladimir Socor, RFE/RL, Inc. ETHNIC RUSSIANS ALSO VICTIMS. Ethnic Russians, whose share in the population of Grozny and environs remains substantial, are being made to suffer the rigors of bombardment and blockade alongside the indigenous Chechen population. Respected human rights campaigner and Duma deputy Sergei Kovalev told RIA on 16 December that "many of the industrial and residential buildings on the outskirts of Grozny have been destroyed." Outside Grozny, hardest hit by Russian forces has been the predominantly Russian-inhabited town of Pervomayskoe. Ethnic Russians interviewed by Russian and Western media express indignation at Moscow's use of force which puts their lives at risk. Reports from the field also speak of the emergence of a sense of solidarity among local ethnic Russians and Chechens in the face of common adversity. There are no reports of Chechen threats of any kind to local Russians. One of the justifications for the Russian intervention had been the presumed need to protect ethnic Russians in Chechnya. -- Vladimir Socor, RFE/RL, Inc. SHEVARDNADZE SUPPORTS RUSSIAN ACTION IN CHECHNYA. Russia must defend its national interests and territorial integrity in Chechnya, Eduard Shevardnadze told ITAR-TASS on 18 December. Shevardnadze said Georgia supports a united and indivisible Russia, because if Moscow will not curtail an "aggressive separatism," it could lead to the disintegration of the Russian Federation. Georgia, which has a joint border with Chechnya, has, of course, a special reason to support military action against Dudaev; it has its own separatist territory, Abkhazia, and Shevardnadze hopes that the Chechen example will help legitimize Georgian policy towards its secessionist state. -- Victor Yasmann, RFE/RL, Inc. >From @JHUVM.HCF.JHU.EDU:owner-rferl-l@UBVM.CC.BUFFALO.EDU Tue Dec 20 09:28 EST 1994 Received: from jhuvm.hcf.jhu.edu by super.ece.jhu.edu (5.61/1.18jrs) id AA07362; Tue, 20 Dec 94 09:28:13 -0500 Message-Id: <9412201428.AA07362@super.ece.jhu.edu> Received: from JHUVM.HCF.JHU.EDU by JHUVM.HCF.JHU.EDU (IBM VM SMTP V2R2) with BSMTP id 2861; Tue, 20 Dec 94 09:25:45 EST Received: from JHUVM.HCF.JHU.EDU (NJE origin LISTSERV@JHUVM) by JHUVM.HCF.JHU.EDU (LMail V1.2a/1.8a) with BSMTP id 2852; Tue, 20 Dec 1994 09:25:35 -0500 Date: Tue, 20 Dec 1994 15:24:52 +0100 Reply-To: rferl-daily-report-request@AdminA.RFERL.ORG Sender: RFE/RL Research Institute Daily Report From: rferl-daily@admina.rferl.org Subject:INFO-RUSS: RFE/RL Daily Report 20 DEC, 1994 Status: O --------------------------------------------------------------- Excerpts from RFE/RL Daily Report No. 239, 20 December 1994 RFE/RL Research Institute is a division of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, Inc. --------------------------------------------------------------- CHECHNYA: MILITARY SITUATION. Having initially claimed that the intervention in Chechnya was meant to defend the welfare of Chechens caught in an "inter-Chechen" conflict and also to protect local Russians, Moscow escalated military operations against Chechnya on 19 and 20 December by subjecting the capital city Grozny with its mixed Chechen-Russian population to air and missile bombardment. Russian and Western media reports from the field featured interviews with local ethnic Russians who observed that it was Russia's military intervention that was placing them in danger. Industrial plants, bridges, municipal utilities and residential quarters were hit, along with a few military targets. One Russian combined-arms column inched toward the northern approaches to the city, shelling Chechen and Russian-inhabited villages in its way. Weapons used included Uragan artillery installations, Sukhoi-27 fighter-bombers, and helicopter gunships. Although regularly stressing in other contexts that Chechnya's residents were Russian Federation citizens entitled to full protection under its laws, the Russian authorities avoided all mention of casualties. Meanwhile, the other two Russian columns were still 40 to 50 kilometers away, having allowed their progress to be thwarted by protesting villagers in Ingushetia, Dagestan, and Chechnya itself. Vladimir Socor, RFE/RL, Inc. ARMY DEMORALIZED. In a speech to Russia's Federation Council and at a news conference in Moscow, both on 15 December, Ingush President Ruslan Aushev confirmed earlier reports that Russian soldiers in the columns crossing Ingushetia en route to Chechnya had often urged the protesters on the highway to disable the military vehicles and had shown them simple ways to do that. The eastern column was reportedly still mired on the border with Dagestan; information about it remained sketchy, but Ekho Moskvy reported from the field on 17 December that the column was not about to move forward and had been partially disarmed. Besides passivity and fraternization with civilians, Russian soldiers began displaying the more brutal side of military demoralization. In a widely reported incident partially witnessed by visiting Russian Duma deputies, at least nine Ingush civilians were murdered by Russian soldiers; an ethnic Bashkir soldier was also killed by apparently drunk Russian fellow servicemen. (In earlier incidents, another Russian soldier and the Ingush minister of health were killed by drunken Russian soldiers, as were five Ingush villagers.) Units approaching Grozny were for the first time reported by correspondents to be committing violent robberies. Vladimir Socor, RFE/RL, Inc. MORE RUSSIAN TROOPS ON THEIR WAY? Radio Liberty reported on 19 December that some troops from the Ural Military District had been ordered to Chechnya and that public protests were under way in Sverdlovsk Oblast against the proposed deployment. The Black Sea Fleet, for its part, command denied to Interfax the same day that preparations were under way to send marine infantry troops to Chechnya. Vladimir Socor, RFE/RL, Inc. FURTHER ETHNIC CLEANSING FEARED. The most recent Russian official statements and actions tend to reinforce fears expressed by the Chechens since the beginning of the invasion that another deportation may be in the offing. Those fears stem not only from the memory of the 1944 deportation of Chechens and Ingush but also from the 1992 ethnic cleansing of the Ingush from Prigorodnyi Raion with Russian military support. In statements carried by Russian TV and ITAR-TASS in recent days, Russia's Security Council Secretary Oleg Lobov and Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Nationality Affairs Nikolai Egorov, among others, have called on the population in areas controlled by Chechen authorities--which at present still means most of Chechnya--to flee to safe areas through corridors to be opened by Russian forces. Officials of the Federal Migration Service told ITAR-TASS and Interfax on 19 December that accommodation had been ranged for refugees from Chechnya in seven regions of central and southern Russia and that an operational group had been set up to coordinate the action. While "assuming the obligation to resettle the refugees and to find accommodation for them in Russia in the future," the officials acknowledged that most refugees were expected to wish to remain close to their homeland until the emergency had passed, and they gave assurances accordingly. The service said that nearly 9,000 refugees from Chechnya had crossed into Dagestan and nearly 5,000 into Ingushetia as of 19 December. But Russia's Ministry for Emergency Situations disputed these figures, claiming that the number of refugees was far higher. Vladimir Socor, RFE/RL, Inc. FOUR MEN IN A BOAT. In a statement reported by Russian media on 18 December, Aleksandr Barkashov, the leader of the Russian National Unity Party, which styles itself a fascist party, endorsed the military intervention in Chechnya. During the preceding days the ultranationalist leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky and the leader of the pro-Soviet and nationalist All-Russian People's Party, Sergei Baburin, also announced their support for the intervention and for Yeltsin's decisions on Chechnya. Evidently taking into account the unpopularity of intervention against Chechnya, Zhirinovsky and Baburin had initially adopted a cautious position, with Zhirinovsky even recommending restraint. They must since, however, have concluded that they cannot afford politically to concede primacy in matters concerning the preservation of Greater Russia to Yeltsin. Vladimir Socor, RFE/RL, Inc. MOSCOW EXPERT DOES NOT BELIEVE IN CAUCASIAN WAR. In the opinion of Pavel Felgengauer, a military correspondent for Segodnya there is no danger of an all-Caucasian war breaking out, as supporters of Chechen President Dzhokhar Dudaev claim. Writing in the paper on 19 December, Felgengauer points out that Chechen forces are cut off from the rest of the country and possible help from neighboring republics by a blockade at the perimeter of Chechnya and around the capital Grozny; this, he argues, makes the situation very different from that faced by the Soviet army in Afghanistan. Felgengauer also contends that Dudaev's supporters differ considerably from those of the legendary Imam Shamil, who led Chechen resistance to Russia in the last century. In Shamil's time, Chechens were united around a strong religious leader, while Chechnya today is splintered and disorganized. Felgengauer adds that the leaders of neighboring Caucasian peoples are competing with Dudaev rather than supporting him. Felgengauer concludes that Dudaev's only hope is that the forces in Moscow protesting against the Russian army's intervention in Chechnya will persuade the president to change his policy, but he thinks this is unlikely.

Russian forces, including spetsnaz units, continued their slow advance toward Grozny from the north against vastly inferior but, apparently, highly motivated Chechen forces. Russian fighter-bombers and helicopter gunships attacked both military and civilian targets in Grozny and several nearby villages. In Grozny, the Russians continued showing a preference for nighttime bombing. Western agencies cited Russian officers on the ground as saying that the air force was using recently developed bombs of higher accuracy; this was corroborated by military analyst Pavel Felgengauer on NTV on 18 December, crediting Russia's military industry for the achievement. Chechen defenders downed two helicopters before reporting in the night of 20 to 21 December that their air defense had run out of ammunition. Reports of violent robberies committed by Russian soldiers were indirectly confirmed by the Internal Affairs Ministry's spokesman in Moscow who said at a briefing, as cited by Interfax on 20 December, that "armed bandits in Russian Army uniform are on the move, attacking refugees and looting." Vladimir Socor, RFE/RL Inc. KOVALEV IN GROZNY. The veteran human rights campaigner and Duma deputy Sergei Kovalev, who is also chairman of a human rights commission attached to the Russian Presidency, has spent the last week in Ingushetia and Chechnya and the last few days in Grozny in order to assess the human costs of the invasion. In a statement to the Russian and foreign public, reported by Radio Liberty on 20 December, Kovalev said the intervention in Chechnya was no longer Russia's internal affair, given the massive loss of life. On 19 December Kovalev ascertained that there had been at least 43 civilian deaths as a result of that day's bombing of Grozny, Radio Liberty's correspondent reported from the scene. Kovalev, who has opposed the intervention all along, released to the media on 20 December the text of a letter to Boris Yeltsin appealing yet again for an end to the bloodshed, for renouncing official misinformation, and for political dialogue with Chechen President Dzhokhar Dudaev (whom Russian democrats consider legitimate). Kovalev noted in his letter that he was being denied access to Yeltsin (as he had been when still hoping to sway the president prior to the invasion). In messages to Yeltsin made public during the preceding days, Kovalev had in vain drawn attention to the wanton destruction caused by Russian troops in the villages of Osinskaya and Pervomaisk. Democratic deputy Viktor Kurochkin gave an eyewitness account of the same events to the Duma, NTV reported on 18 December. Vladimir Socor, RFE/RL Inc. NO "MINIMAL BLOODSHED." On Russian Radio on 19 December the head of the Afghanistan Invalid Veterans' Fund and secretary of the Chamber of Public Organizations attached to the Russian Presidency, Vasilii Sadovnikov, dismissed the notion that there could be "minimal bloodshed" in Chechnya, giving a graphic description of the carnage he had witnessed in Afghanistan and now again in Chechnya. He, too, appealed to Yeltsin to stop the military intervention. But Yeltsin's adviser Georgii Satarov appeared to give the current official view when he told Ostankino TV that civilian casualties are inevitable in an operation of this kind (which he himself supported). He blamed it on the troops' "front psychosis, that's a known thing...there is no escaping it." Foreign Ministry official Vyacheslav Bakhmin took a similar line on "unavoidable" violations of human rights of civilians, including the right to life, by Russian troops in Chechnya. Vladimir Socor, RFE/RL Inc. WAVE OF REFUGEES. Russia's Minister for Emergency Situations Sergei Shoigu told a media briefing in Moscow on 20 December that some 100,000 people had fled from Chechnya in the preceding 10 days, Interfax reported. The figure is eight times as high as the estimate offered the preceding day by Russia's Migration Service (see the Daily Report of 19 December). According to Shoigu, 64,000 refugees are in Ingushetia, some 30,000 in Dagestan, 3,000 in Vladikavkaz, and 2,000 to 3,000 in Stavropol Krai. Russia's Federal Counterintelligence Service Director Sergei Stepashin, Deputy Prime Minister Nikolai Egorov--who is also Yeltsin's special representative for Chechnya--and other officials continue urging the population to flee for its life and accept relocation by the Migration Service, raising fears of another deportation. The refugees are unable to flee to either Georgia or Azerbaijan, as, under a decree issued on 20 December, the Russian government has reinforced its troops on the border with those countries, and banned cross-border movement by civilians, vehicles of all types, and goods in either direction. Radio Mayak's political commentator observed on 20 December that, "apparently, the processes of willing exodus or deportation have already begun. Russia's forces have chosen the tactic of displacing the population. The 400,000 inhabitants of Grozny are being urged to leave the city, but where are they to go? Where are they going to push Chechnya's population in general?" Vladimir Socor, RFE/RL Inc. OCCUPATION PLANNING UNDER WAY. In connection with the plan to introduce temporary direct rule from Moscow in Chechnya, senior Russian officials have told the media in recent days that they are in the process of selecting Chechen figures for posts in the new structure. For the top position reserved for a Chechen native, Federation Council Chairman Vladimir Shumeiko has endorsed Doku Zavgaev, Izvestiya reported on 20 December. Zavgaev was the CPSU Central Committee first secretary in Checheno-Ingushetia until 1991; he supported the August 1991 putsch and was ousted by Dudaev. More recently Zavgaev has been employed in Yeltsin's Presidential Administration, and he supports the Russian intervention. According to Moskovskie novosti (no. 63, 11-18 December), Zavgaev is a member of the most influential clan in Nadterechnyi Raion, which has served as a base for Dudaev's opponents and the Russian intervention; Zavgaev's brothers are reported to play a major role in that raion. Under the headline "Puppeteers in Search of Puppets," the same analysis did not rule out the candidacy of Umar Avtorkhanov, the nominal leader of the Provisional Council created and armed by Moscow in Nadterechnyi Raion to oppose Dudaev. Another claimant is Salambek Khadzhiev, head of a shadowy "Chechen national salvation government" described by Interfax on 19 December as slated to form the territorial organs of power under the direct administration to be formed by Nikolai Egorov. In Izvestiya of 20 December, the head of the Chechen Elders' Council, Said-Akhmed Azizov, insisted that "we have our own state with its organs, and any attempts to saddle us with outsiders will lead not to peace but to war." Vladimir Socor, RFE/RL Inc. OIL PRODUCTION FALLS. Output of crude oil in 1994 fell by 11 percent in comparison with last year from 354.6 million tons to 314 million, according to preliminary data from the Fuel and Energy Ministry cited by Interfax and Western agencies on 19 December. Output is expected to decline still further in 1995 to 295 million tons. But while oil production has been falling since the late 1980s, exports have grown. In the first 11 months of 1994, 87.8 million tons were exported outside the former USSR, a 15 percent increase over the same period in 1993.

The city is being bombed at nights to enhance the terror on the civilian population. How much longer shall we witness this crime against humanity in silence? The U.S. government ignores cries, blood, and death of Chechen civilians because it is shy to irritate Russia and president Eltsin who has become another bloody dictator after breaking every law in his country. Russian government is deaf to the cries of its people, as it has always been in the past. LET"EM HEAR US !!!!

Chert, tol'ko chto uslyshal srochnoe: komandovanie ob'javilo, chto s polunochi prioritetnoj tsel'ju ob'javljaetsja gostinitsa "Kavkaz", i predlozhilo zhurnalistam (a oni vse tam zhivut) ee pokinut'. Ofitsial'noe obosnovanie - v gostinitse zhivut boeviki, i ona stala voennym ob'ektom. Itak: neskol'ko slov o pravovom aspekte situatsii. Nastorazhivaet, chto obsuzhdaja tezis "territorial'noj tselostnosti Rossii" i printsip nevmeshatel'stva vo vnutrennie dela, nashi zapadnye sosedi kak budto zabyli o Tret'ej korzine Hel'sinkskogo soglashenija, o tom, chto na prava cheloveka i gumanitarnye voprosy ne rasprostranjaetsja printsip suvereniteta v polnom ob'eme. Takim obrazom, demokraticheskie pravitel'stva imejut pravo trebovat', chtoby nenarushenie prav cheloveka imelo prioritet pri vypolnenii zadachi zaschity territorial'noj tselostnosti (skazhem, oni sverhaktivno pol'zujutsja etim pravom v ex-Jugoslavii). A v moral'nom smysle oni eto delat' objazany (nu, na to oni i politiki, chtoby v udobnyj moment zabyvat' o morali). No, kak politiki, oni tozhe sovershajut oshibku. Priverzhennost' Zapada (iskljuchitel'no na slovah) printsipu prioriteta prav cheloveka sniskala zapadnym demokratijam ogromnyj avtoritet v Rossii i oblegchila obschuju pereorientatsiju russkoj kul'tury (vesternizatsiju), bez kotoroj ne mozhet byt' prochnym nikakoe partnerstvo.

A reshenie pravovogo spora siloj bezuslovno zapreschaetsja mezhdunarodnym pravom. Razumeetsja, russkoe pravitel'stvo imelo pravo i dazhe objazannost' blokirovat' opasnost' dlja porjadka i zakona na sopredel'nyh territorijah adekvatnymi opasnosti merami, t.e. usileniem politsejskogo kontrolja za dvizheniem ljudej i osobenno gruzov (oruzhija, to est') cherez granitsu.

V otlichie ot chechentsev, abhazy sostavljali v svoej avtonomii men'shinstvo (okolo 15% protiv 55% gruzin). Demokraticheskie organy vlasti, sposobnye vyrazhat' volju naroda k nezavisimosti, sozdat' udalos' (pri pomoschi aparteida - naznachennye esche kommunistami etnicheski abhazskie vlasti avtonomii prinjali izbiratel'nyj zakon, po kotoromu golosa imeli raznyj ves v zavisimosti ot natsional'nosti izbiratelja), no vot s voennoj siloj bylo huzhe - vojna ne vybory, nel'zja prosto provozglasit', chto odin abhaz pobivaet chetyreh gruzin. Razumeetsja, russkie generaly komandovali abhazskoj armiej, intendanty vooruzhali, artilleristy streljali, letchiki bombili zhilye kvartaly Suhumi (tak chto Kavkazu ne vpervoj), i nakonets lichno g-n E vmeshalsja s edinstvenno izvestnym emu voennym navykom - predatel'stvom (pod ego chestnoe slovo russkie razoruzhili obe armii, posle chego na bezoruzhnyh gruzin poehali tanki abhazov, chisljaschiesja hranjaschimisja na russkih skladah - i bystro vzjali Suhumi).

Kstati: komandoval shturmom Suhumi rossijskij general, zverstvo kotorogo nad gruzinami potrjaslo dazhe samih konfederatov, i sejchas sredi zaschitnikov Groznogo hodit mif, chto imenno etot general komanduet shturmom goroda.

According to ITAR-TASS on 21 December, a joint session of Russia's government, Security Council, and Presidential staff that day concluded that Chechen resistance was "sharply increasing." It found that the defenders of Grozny were being reinforced and were moving outward from the city center to ward off Russian forces. Moreover, "guerrilla groups and snipers are active everywhere. Losses among the [Russian] servicemen have increased." A communique from invasion headquarters in Mozdok, on the same day, also reported by ITAR-TASS noted "a significant exacerbation of the situation in the last few days," as Russian units "are repeatedly being fired upon." Moreover, "Chechen fighters are laying mines and using Afghan-type hit-and-run tactics." It also reported that groups of outside "mercenaries" were joining the Chechen forces. In what appears to be the most intense engagement thus far, 11 members of a Russian "reconnaissance" (spetsnaz?) unit were killed and five went missing in fighting for the village of Petropavlovka to the north of Grozny, a Russian communique said. The Russian side has not updated its casualty toll since 15 December when it offered an implausibly low figure of 17 killed. Meanwhile, Russian air bombardment of Grozny and shelling of villages continued, increasingly described by Western agencies as "terror" bombing apparently aimed at persuading the population to leave. With the water, heating, electricity, and food supplies in Grozny severely disrupted, a growing number of people are fleeing the city. Ethnic Russian residents, not having relatives in the countryside, tend to remain behind, exposed to the hardships of a war among whose stated aims was that of protecting them. Vladimir Socor, RFE/RL, Inc. YELTSIN ADDRESSES THE CHECHENS. For the first time since the beginning of the invasion, and apparently prompted by the developing military quagmire, Russian President Boris Yeltsin addressed the people of Chechnya on 21 December. Restating the demand for the disarmament of Chechen "unlawful formations" (but notably dropping the standard adjective "bandit"), Yeltsin held them responsible for "the killing of fellow-countrymen--Chechens, Russians, and other nationalities"--and insisted that Russian forces engaged in Chechnya "are not endangering the peaceful population." These remarks are so at variance with the situation in the field that they seem to bear out Sergei Kovalev's point in his open letter to Yeltsin (see Daily Report of 21 December) about "false and mendacious information" being supplied to him. Yeltsin went on to pledge that "the deportation of the Chechen people will never be repeated under any circumstances"--a formulation that even if sincere and well meaning will remind Chechens about Yeltsin's September vow that there will be "no military intervention under any circumstances." Yeltsin pledged to provide economic relief, without mentioning the destruction being wrought by Russian forces, and to "guarantee all the civil rights and liberties" on Chechnya's territory and to restore "local bodies of power," without mentioning his own recent decree on the introduction of direct rule from Moscow in Chechnya. He predicted that Chechnya "will again become an equal subject of the Russian Federation." Vladimir Socor, RFE/RL, Inc. CIVILIAN MORALE HIGH DESPITE LOSSES. Following an appeal by President Dzhokhar Dudaev, on 20 December despite wintry weather at least 100,000 Chechen joined a human chain on the highway from Grozny to Dagestan to protest the Russian military intervention and to reaffirm the goal of independence. The crowds held placards condemning the killing of civilians by Russian forces and calling for a free Chechnya. Some placards chastised international indifference to the situation. Anecdotal evidence reported by Western agencies indicated that ethnic Russians from Grozny participated in the chain. The inspiration for the action undoubtedly stemmed from Dudaev's experience in the Baltic States, where such demonstrations were organized during the final stage of Soviet rule. As commander of a Soviet air force division based in Estonia, Dudaev had shown sympathy for the Baltic independence movements. The mass response to his appeal belies the assumption, which permeates Russian official discussions of Chechnya, that most of the population opposes Dudaev. On the same day, Dudaev appealed to Chechens not to blame Russian residents for the actions of the Russian military. Although the local Russians are by all accounts unmolested, Moscow claims that they are in imminent danger. On 20 and 21 December, agencies reported the arrival of poorly equipped but determined Chechen volunteers from the countryside to reinforce the defense of Grozny. Vladimir Socor, RFE/RL, Inc. MOSCOW WARNS AZERBAIJAN, UKRAINE OVER VOLUNTEERS IN CHECHNYA. On 21 December the Russian government press service issued a statement, reported by Interfax and ITAR-TASS, condemning alleged atrocities committed in Chechnya by mercenary groups composed of volunteers from Azerbaijan, Ukraine, and Afghanistan, two hundred of whom are reportedly headquartered at the Kavkaz hotel in Grozny. The continued participation of such groups in hostilities could, the statement warned, "complicate Russia's relations with the countries they come from." In the case of both Azerbaijan and Ukraine, the volunteers in question are politically aligned with radical opposition groups. Whether the Afghan contingent is that recruited last year by Heidar Aliev to fight in Nagorno-Karabakh, where a cease-fire has been in force for six months, is not clear.

To: info-russ@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Status: O Dear IR-folks, Below is another excerpt from RFE/RL Daily Report No. 241, 22 December 1994, on "reopened" dissident movement and samizdat in Russia. I just want to make a little comment on the report below by Julia Wishnevsky, an old dissy herself, who is usually well informed and write good reports. She wrote "all four participants in the 1968 demonstration against the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia who are still alive--Larisa Bogoraz, Pavel Litvinov, Nataliya Gorbanevskaya, and Viktor Fainberg --have signed a petition condemning the Russian intervention in Chechnya". It is good to know that my own instincts (I am talking here about Chechnya) are still the same as that of the people whom I used to know personally for many years, to know both as brilliant and talanted individuals and as bravest and honest to earth dissidents, pioneers in open opposition to the sov-system, people with whom I had had an honor of having my signature to appear on the same protest letters 28 years ago and later. It is so good to hear their names and voices again, to know they are the same brave and outspoken dissies, soul and heart... The only thing is that, thanks God, they are not "all ... participants ... still alive". There were seven of them at that demonstration in Red Square in 1968. Vadik Delone died in Paris about 10 years ago; and unfortunately at this point I don't know anything about Kostya Babitsky, but the 7-th demonstrator, Volodya Dremlyuga, it quite alive in NJ (at least as of an hour ago when I spoke with him on the phone:-). Good for him; after 6 years spent by him in the worst sov-camps, he can use some extra time on this earth... It is my pleasure to let those of you who remember my posting about "7 in Red Square" know that the rumors of him not being alive are a bit exaggerated:-) --Alex Kaplan, INFO-RUSS owner/coordinator --------------------------------------------------------------- Excerpt from RFE/RL Daily Report No. 241, 22 December 1994 --------------------------------------------------------------- CHECHNYA: SOVIET DISSIDENT MOVEMENT REVISITED. The invasion of Chechnya has revived forms of activity typical of dissidents in the Brezhnev era, many of whom had hitherto supported President Yeltsin. Apart from the veteran human rights activists Sergei Kovalev and Mikhail Molostvov, whose actions in Grozny have been covered in the Daily Report, as many as 17 former political prisoners signed the appeal protesting against the invasion (Express-Khronika, 16 December 1994). Elena Bonner, a founding member of the Moscow Helsinki group and the widow of the Nobel prize winner Andrei Sakharov, declared in an open letter that Yeltsin could not remain Russia's president if the invasion were to continue. Finally, all four participants in the 1968 demonstration against the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia who are still alive--Larisa Bogoraz, Pavel Litvinov, Nataliya Gorbanevskaya, and Viktor Fainberg--have signed a petition condemning the Russian intervention in Chechnya. Since no Russian newspaper has published their petition so far, it is circulated in samizdat form among Moscow human rights activists.

Boris Velikson ____________ President Clinton White House Washington, DC Boris Velikson Section de Biophysique des proteines et des membranes DBCM Centre d'Etudes de Saclay 91191 Gif-sur-Yvette Cedex France December 23, 1994 Dear Mr President: as a US citizen and as a former Soviet citizen, I urge you to stop considering the situation in Chechnya as a a Russian internal affair. This is a major event for the future of not only the Caucasus region, but of the world as a whole. During the 16 years that I have been living in the West, the incapability of the US government to evaluate events in Russia in their full context and on time, as well as the experts' failure to correctly predict their consequences, has become anecdotic. However, it is not too late at the moment to use the whole weight of the US political and economic strength in order to try preventing Russia from becoming a threat for humanity once again. The current events mark a threshold in the short history of the post- Soviet regime in Russia. For the first time, the government's troops are openly killing innocent people for purely imperialist (moreover, nonrealistic) purposes. Personally, I cannot any more feel different about the current Russian government than I felt about the Soviet regime. There is no legality to a government that murders civilians, whether or not such a government has come to being in a democratic fashion. I would like to remind you that Hitler came to power democratically. It is important to understand that what is happening now has nothing to do with any inter- or intra-ethnic conflict, or with the question whether or not the right of the Chechen people to self-determination should be recognized. The situation, complex in the past, has become crystal clear. The lives being destroyed now are not the price to pay for saving other lives (even if one recognizes to a government the right to decide who will die instead of whom). The children killed by Russian bombs in Grozny died simply to satisfy someone's criminal ambitions. The so-called East-West conflict has often been misrepresented as a conflict between world powers. This is false. The Soviet regime was a worse enemy of its people than of the US as a state. The current government has become MY enemy - it has shown that it would easily kill me or you or whosoever if our house happens to stand on its way. The political situation is unstable in Russia. It seems that only some 20 per cent of the population are in favor of this war. This means that an external influence may help shifting the balance and stop the bloodshed. I urge you to stop any governmental help to the Russian government. Stop dealing with criminals!

I need an urgent legal advice in family law. The situation is the following. My wife and I are getting divorced (sorry to bother everyone with a family drama), and we both currently live in the U.S. We are both Russian citizens. I came here 3 and 1/2 years ago as a student (F-1 visa) and she and our daughter joined me a year later (F-2 visas). Later on I started working for the World Bank and got a G-4 visa (special status, which does have certain priviledges) for all of us. Now we have not lived together for 7 months and since then my wife changed her visa to F-1 (I think) as she now goes to school. All these visas are temporary, and only G-4 can have some special strange status. According to the Russian law, Russian citizens have to get divorced at the place of permanent residense of one of the spouses, which is in Moscow. My question are: Can we get divorced in the U.S.? Does the court in the U.S. have jurisdiction over us (we lived in our (different!) states for more than six months which enables us to pursue legal actions in these status)? Maybe the court has jurisdiction over child support, custody and visitation, but cannot divorce us? It is very important to me as my wife thinks that if we get divorced I stop being a father to our 6-year old daughter. She created hundrends of problems in this respect. I love my child and know that she needs me as well as her mother. Only in the U.S., where I can actually impose (!!!) the decision of the court, I can be an effective father to my daughter. Also, only here the court can mandate certain things to help my wife deal with the situation. Is there a lawyer or anyone with a legal exprtise (I am sure I am not the first one to have this problem) who can help me clarify this matter? This can be a person anywhere in the world, as long as the advice is well-based, but my location preference would be the U.S. Once again, sorry to bother all of you with the family drama, but some things happen in this life. I would appreciate all the help that I can get.

Status: O Hi, dear fiends! I guess, now it is quite busy time for the countries of Western democracies. At least it is so now in England, in he time between Christmas and New Year (periods when even railway and subway are shut down) - everybody shopping, popping in to the friends, inviting them, etc. Apparently all in the West are gradually forgetting Chechens fighting with huge Soviet-like war machine making the "example" for other nations of Russia (or FSU as well?) as g-n E (love this abbreviation :-) without any hesitation said. When Gorbachov send tanks to Vilnus everybody in Russia understood that next step will be tanks in Moscow. It seems to be a case now too. What is worse is that media lies again like in the old time. My relatives in Moscow tell us that they again have to look for the information between newslines and extract it from rumors. The worst stuff is that it looks like if g-n E will end Chechens with bombs and army (now army again wants to draft junior 2-3d year University students), he will have end up with clear hands as for the West and also within Russia. But next time tanks will be shooting not on the Parlament, not somewhere in Chechnya - they will be shooting on Russians. In one of the previous info-russ-mailings there were some addresses for USA sitizens and non-sitizens to write to. I think it would be very useful if those of us who are sitizens or rezidents of Western countries will write to local goverment officials or influental organizations (i.e. churches, academic organizations cooperating with Russia such as ISF, media, etc.). Those who are Russians might write to Russian Government and Parlament (I can't escape doubts regarding sense of that, but, if the organisation on the Old Square is the same, every letter will count :-). Therefore, if there are some ideas regarding addresses in Russia - surface, e-mails, faxes (and Great Britain, where I am now), I will appresiate them. You can write directly to me, I will digest the mailings and post them back on the net.
