Battle of Grozny

In the Battle of Grozny of August 1996, Chechen rebels regained and then kept control of Chechnya's capital Grozny in a surprise raid. The Russian Federation had conquered the city during the Battle of Grozny and posted there a large garrison of federal and republican Ministry of the Interior troops.

It was captured by a column of Russian troops led by elements of the 104th Guards Airborne Division in a surprise south-east dash from the village of Tolstoy-Yurt.
