In pictures: War in Chechnya
Russian casualties

The number of Russian casualties is unknown.

The Russian authorities rarely publish figures.

The Committee of Soldiers' Mothers has estimated that 12,000 died between autumn 1999 and autumn 2003.

Many of those sent to fight in Chechnya were raw recruits, poorly trained and equipped - and sometimes poorly fed.

Many civilians have also died.
