    MOSCOW, MARCH 19 (RIA NOVOSTI) - In Chechnya frontline aviation is actually not used, Vladimir Mikhailov, Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Air Force, told journalists.

    "The situation in Chechnya has noticeably changed for the better and we practically are not making use of frontline aircraft. They only make some reconnaissance sorties," Mikhailov said.

    He also noted that the intensity of use of army aviation in Chechnya has subsided. "Our helicopters are mostly delivering cargoes to hard-to-reach regions and carrying personnel of, above all, airborne-and-assault units," said the Air Force commander-in-chief.
