Russian forces appear to have taken control of Djohar (Grozny), the Chechen capital, though sniper fire continues. How many Chechen forces successfully withdrew toward the west and south, and how many were killed or surrendered, are not reliably reported. But Shamil Basaev, probably the most powerful Chechen commander, was severely wounded and may have lost a leg. At least two other important commanders were killed, as was Leche Dudaev, the nephew of Djohar Dudaev, the commander killed in 1995 for whom Grozny was renamed.
