une 14, 1995 - An armed group headed by influential rebel leader and notorious warlord Shamil Basayev seized a hospital in the southern Russian town of Budyonnovsk.

The then-Prime Minister of Russia Viktor Chernomyrdin entered into phone negotiations with the terrorists. After fierce fighting and further negotiations Basayev’s gunmen left Budyonnovsk taking a group of hostages who were released after the rebels reached the Chechen border. In the course of the 6-day hostage drama 129 peaceful residents were killed and 415 were wounded (18 of them later died of their wounds). 54 municipal buildings and 110 private houses were either fully or partially destroyed in the fighting. 15 members of Basayev’s gang have subsequently been sentenced to lengthy prison terms.

In exchange for the civilians Raduyev received 8 State Duma deputies as guarantors of their safety.
The hostage drama lasted for nearly ten days. Throughout that time Radyuev’s men held some 160 people hostage. The rebels used many of them as a human shield on their way to Chechnya.

When the rebels failed to observe the agreement, the federal forces attacked the rebels’ convoy. Raduyev and his men then occupied a checkpoint in Pervomaiskoye. After fierce fighting Salman Raduyev fled. Earlier this year Raduyev was sentenced to life in prison on terrorism charges.
