Chechen president Aslan Maskhadov has ordered Chechnya’s elite Borz (Wolf) regiment to disband, saying some members had set up roadblocks to stop cars and rob travelers. He has also disbanded the "Army of General Dudaev," which is commanded by maverick field commander Salman Raduev. Chechnya is setting up a national guard consisting of some 2,000 servicemen.
