      The kidnappers seemed to be going straight for him, Gluck said, but on
      the other hand, one of the first things they did after covering his
      head and speeding away was to ask him who he was (*). They also
      confiscated his documents-- including his two permits from Russian
      military authorities allowing him to work in Chechnya (**), he said.
      ------------------------
      Gluck spent most of his captivity in a house on a street where he
      could hear traffic moving outside and occasionally people
      shouting(***). At night, he was kept awake by his own anxiety and by
      the sounds of artillery nearby(****). He thought of trying to escape
      but never acted.
      ------------------------

      * Kidnappers wanted just this person, so the case was planned before.
      ** What would ordinary criminals or Chechen "warlords" do with Russian
      documents if they exactly knew who they kidnapped? Only a "civil
      servant" is insterested in confiscateing such documents.
      *** such heavy remarcable traffic for ex. of military lorries etc.
      exist in areas under Russian control, at checkpoints etc.
      **** The artillery exist only in Russian bases and at checkpoints.

      Obviously he was kept all the time quite near to Russian troops.

      How near?

      Sincerely BIR
