The group of the Interior Troops reports the activisation of separatists' actions in Chechnya. According to the group's press bureau, the reduction of checkpoints on the roads leading from the republic's mountain regions to the flatlands allowed the bandits to freely move between villages. The military report that small groups of fighters are infiltrating Shali from other settlements. The village military units do not present a serious barrier to the fighters and can be blockaded by a group of 10-15 men, believe the Interior Troops. Local residents are leaving settlements in the Chechen flatlands. Some residents of the villages of Tongi and Roshni-Chu of the Urus-Martan District are leaving their homes and moving outside the republic for fear of the bandits' revenge, reports the press bureau. The most intensive subversive activity of the fighters in the flatlands was registered last night in the Leninsky District of Grozny and in the Vedeno District of Chechnya, says the press bureau.
