Alexander Lebed, a former paratrooper general, stood against Putin in the 2000 presidential elections.
Their complaints are familiar: first, that the army has been starved of support, both political and financial, to smash rebels in Chechnya and second, that under corrupt and incompetent civilian leadership, Russia has lost her great power status - and needs to claw it back.
Far from wanting a political settlement to end the Chechen war, the generals are already demanding its widening, to include an invasion of neighbouring Georgia to strike at rebel bases.

 Irish elections strengthen republicans
Following its strong result in the Six County elections, in the national elections on June 7 Caoimhghín O Caoláin won the border constituency of Cavan-Monaghan to become the first Sinn Féin member elected to the Irish parliament on a straight Sinn Féin ticket since 1957.
O Caoláin's 19% share of the vote almost tripled the party's 7.6% in the 1992 26 County elections and was thousands of votes ahead of the rest of the field.
Sinn Féin campaigned in the Irish elections as a voice for “the rights and aspirations of the excluded and of those who wish to see a new Ireland truly free from outside interference”.
