      SPECIAL OPERATIONS AGAINST CHECHEN WARLORDS ON

      MOSCOW, OCTOBER 31, RIA NOVOSTI -- Vladimir Moltenskoi, commander of
      the Joint Group of Federal Forces in the North Caucasus, has
      disproved media reports alleging that he had ordered to suspend a
      special operation against Chechen militant leaders.

      "These reports are not true and Chechen warlords should not better
      relax," Moltenskoi told RIA Novosti on Wednesday.

      He stressed that federal units are conducting reconnaissance and
      search operations according to the plans, which among other things
      aim to block and destroy leaders of illegal armed groupings. "I see
      no reason why such operations should be suspended or cancelled," said
      the commander.

      To him, a large-scale operation is being completed in the Nozhai-Yurt
      district of Chechnya. In the course of the operation discovered were
      several militant bases and hideouts with weapons.

      The military reported on 200 militants which have been destroyed or
      detained over the last two weeks.
