Russian negotiators Vyacheslav Mikhailov and Arkady Volsky insisted yesterday that there would be no peace in Chechnya until Dudayev is no longer surrounded by arms. Chechen president Dzhokhar Dudayev’s spokesman Movladi Udugov retorted that Chechen forces are not in a position to comply with the Russian ultimatum on handing over their heavy equipment. Udugov added that the Russian military knows this and that their demand is tantamount to "a declaration of war."

According to the Russian military command, on September 20, two Russian officers were captured and two soldiers wounded by Chechen forces.(1)
