Kavkaz-Tsentr reports:

The captured General Malofeyev is still alive but his medical shape is still serious because of the injuries he has received during a Russian bombardment of the place where he is kept. The Kremlin keeps on trying to kill Malofeyev by attacking the mountain villages where he is supposed to be imprisoned with bomber planes and 'Skad' rockets.

In Dzhokhar the heavy fighting continued during the last day. The Russians attacked in Khankala, in the 56th District, in Staraya Sunsha, in the Staropromyshlovsky District, near Chernorechye and near the tinning factory. All these attacks have been repulsed.
The Chechens are in control of the town, and special units of the Mujahideen carry out actions behind the Russian lines.
In Tashkala a Russian tank column has been attacked. Four armoured vehicles have been knocked out. In the 56th district the Mujahideen attacked a Russian marine infantry unit and killed more than 40 Russians.
Face-to-face combat in Staraya Sunsha and in the 3rd Micro-District – the Chechens lost 5 men here, the Russians about 70.
All in all, during the last 24 hours in Dzhokhar the Russians suffered more than 300 casualties, 17 armoured vehicles have been knocked out.
9 Mujahideen died, 15 were wounded.

According to the leader of the committee of foreign affairs of the Chechen parliament, Akhyad Idigov, an official Chechen delegation has arrived at the Council of Europe. Their aim is to enlighten this institution on the real situation in Chechnya and to appeal for the exclusion of Russia. They want to throw light on the Russian war-crimes: the killing of innocent people, the robbery and the marauding in the occupied territories. In this territories concentration camps have been set up, even special concentration camps for children. The Chechen delegation's intention is to meet with various delegations of the Council of Europe.

The Argun Valley is in control of the Mujahideen. Though the Putin regime has concentrated 40,000 troops there, the Chechens resist all the Russian attacks there and perform counter-attacks. The last day about 130 Russian died on this battle field. The Mujahideen are in control of several important heights near Duba-Yurt. Yesterday a Russian attack has been repulsed their.

In the Vedeno Valley the situation remains stable. The Mujahideen have withdrawn from Vedeno two weeks ago in order to occupy more advantageous positions. But only yesterday the Russians dared to move into the town.

Near Serzhen-Yurt the Chechens are retaining the military initiative – every movement of the Russians is stopped by Chechen attacks. In the fights in the Argun Valley and in the Vedeno Valley 7 mujahideen died during the last day.
