    ROSTOV-ON-DON, January 12,2004. (RIA Novosti) - The band, which broke into the Tsustinsky district of Daghestan in December last year, was headed by Ruslan Gelayev, said deputy Prosecutor General Sergei Fridinsky at the news conference on Monday.

    Fridinsky referred to the evidence given by five militants who were detained during the anti-terrorist operation.

    According to them, differences had arisen between the heads of bandit units in Chechnya - Gelayev, Basayev and Maskhadov. It is for this reason that Gelayev decided to spend winter in Georgia, pointed out the deputy Prosecutor General.

    The band, which consisted of 36 members, has been practically destroyed, he underscored. However, Fridinsky did not exclude that some bandits could break away from the encirclement.

    The detained militants have been charged with murder, the attempt on the life of law enforcers, and the participation in illegal armed units, said the deputy Prosecutor General.
