Administration Of Grozny Alleges That Federal Forces Had Fired At Dwelling House

The Administration of Grozny has alleged that the federal forces had opened fire at a dwelling house in the city, killing two people. According to a statement by Ruslan Martagov, head of the administration's press-service, which was released in Grozny, last Sunday "an unidentified unit of federal forces blocked and opened fire at house in No.52, Polyarnikov Street." The statement asserts that Said-Emin Utayev, born in 1962, and Magomed Arsamirzoyev, born in 1965, were killed in the shelling. The military command has so far not commented on that allegation of the mayor's office. Earlier, Interior Minister Boris Gryzlov publicly reproached the municipal authorities for having left Grozny during the May holidays, thereby actually leaving it to the mercy of fate. Of late Grozny has become the most dangerous place in Chechnya. Hardly a day passes without gunmen from the separatist formations blowing up land mines on roads and staging acts of terrorism. The mass-scale murder by Chechen bandits of Russian-speaking residents of Grozny has caused particular reverberations in the country. -0 (tol/ter) 07/05/01 14:11
