- Story Text: Russian troops continued to reinforce their lines around Grozny,the capital of breakaway Chechnya, on Sunday (January 22), as they extended their hold on the city.
Heavy tanks, helicopters, trucks and troops moved in the direction of Grozny from the stronghold of Tolstoy Yurt, north-west of the city.
The new reinforcements were six kms (four miles) from the capital and no resistance from the Chechen side was reported.
Russia sent troops into Chechnya on December 11 to crush the region's three-year independence bid. Chechens have put up stiff resistance and Moscow, despite its superior firepower, has been unable gain control over Grozny.
