Russian ground troops entered Chechnya on Thursday, taking positions on strategic heights near the border and reportedly advancing as far as six miles into the breakaway republic. The moves followed a week of airstrikes against Grozny, the Chechen capital, that sent nearly 80,000 Chechens fleeing in fear.
