Faced with mounting criticism from the West over the war in Chechnya, Russian President Boris N. Yeltsin will head to Beijing today for talks with Chinese leaders aimed at balancing what both countries see as global domination by the United States. As Moscow's brutal campaign in the separatist southern republic increasingly alienates Yeltsin's Western friends, the Russian president is scheduled to meet with his Chinese counterpart, Jiang Zemin, on Thursday and Friday before returning home.

Federal troops prepared Sunday to renew an offensive against the Chechen village of Komsomolskoye, which the military had claimed was under its control after a week of fierce fighting.

Chechen civilians who have been stuck at border checkpoints for days won the backing of the United Nations on Friday in protesting Russia's policy of restricting the movement of Chechen males ages 10 to 60.

They came to the showdown carrying every weapon they could. On one side stood five dozen men, fingers ready on triggers. Staring back at them across a bleak stretch of grass and sparse shrubs were a couple of hundred warriors, guns raised, holding an emaciated prisoner. Magomed Keligov waited. His face was gray and gaunt, his hair shaggy, his legs shackled. He had seen the sun just once in nearly 12 months. Most of that time he had been fastened to the wall of a cellar by a yard-long chain.

President Clinton said Wednesday that punishing Russia for its war in the separatist republic of Chechnya--as several GOP presidential candidates have urged--is not in U.S. interests. Nor, he said, will economic pressures resolve the crisis. "The people of Chechnya should not be punished for what the rebels did," the president said. The militants have been blamed for terrorist bombings in Moscow and other Russian cities.
