      Chechnya has finished the exchange of passports for 740;000 of its
      citizens

      740,000 "Russian citizens", who live in Chechnya, have got new
      passports, the process of exchanging the main documents in the
      republic has been finished, reports ITAR-TASS.

      According to the chief for pasport-visa department of the MVD of
      Chechnya - Alkhadzhi Muguyev, the exchange in the republic began
      already in February 2000, much later than in other subjects of the
      federation.

      In this case a large part of archives of passport filess was
      destroyed by the fighters, and local residents periodically brought
      for the exchange not only their Soviet passports, but also passports
      of the so-called "Chechen Republic of Ichkeria";

      "Problem was also in the fact that before giving out a new passport,
      for all the men it was necessary to verify their participation in
      those illegal armed units" - said Muguyev.

      However, because of this work several tens of people, who hid their
      criminal past have been revealed.
