      PONOMARENKO, FED UP WITH MOSCOW DECEPTION, WILL QUIT

      The war in Chechnya is being accelerated, Naurski District administration
      chief Sergei Ponomarenko said on Dec.29. Akhmad Kadyrov's appointment as head
      of the Chechen administration demonstrates to the people of Chechnya that
      Moscow isn't serious about trying to solve the republic's problems. All
      Chechens know that the separatist field commanders pass freely at check
      points, and the military justify their inaction by the fact that there has
      been no order to exterminate them. Ordinary people have become convinced that
      the Kremlin needs this hot-bed of tension. When he was the federal
      administration representative, he said, ordinary citizens came to him asking
      him to help solve their problems; but now they refuse to cooperate with the
      authorities and turn instead to the separatists.
      Ponomarenko said he doesn't want to deceive the people of his district, and
      will resign and return to his home town of Georgievsk.
