The people are very nervous; they are on the edge of hysterical. Vladimir Zhirinovsky’s party, the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia (LDPR), is holding a meeting. Many people have gathered for the meeting, basically, the youth. They ask to stop the war in Chechnya at any cost. Assistant to the president Sergey Yastrzhembsky is also there. So far, he has not given an interview or released any statements.

About 70 relatives and friends of the hostages gathered on Red Square at 1:00 p.m. Moscow time. They gathered on the part of the square that is called the Vasiliyevsky Lowering, since the Red Square itself is closed. The people are holding a demonstration. They are holding posters and slogans calling upon the authorities to stop the war in Chechnya and to start peace negotiations.
