"Shamil Basayev! I am at work," the prime minister shouted into his beige telephone at the guerrilla leader holding hundreds of hostages. "I will answer for all that is happening in this country. How much time do you need to give me an answer?" It was 2:40 a.m. To millions of Russians who watched a replay on national television, the scene marked a dramatic turn from a Kremlin policy of war in Chechnya, the start of high-level negotiations and the emergence of Viktor S.

The killing of the soldiers--the deadliest direct combat between peacekeepers and Serbs in three years of war--came just hours after French President Jacques Chirac threatened to pull out his troops unless they are given better protection.
