As of 7 August, UN Secretary-Generals report, no progress has been made towards resolving this conflict. A Resident Deputy to the Special Envoy has been sent to assist in achieving settlement and safe return of refugees and IDPs, maintain the territorial integrity of the Republic and negotiate special status for Abkhazia.
The total number of IDPs is estimated to be 152,000 in Daghestan, Ingushetia and North Ossetia, although there are considerable difficulties in assessing numbers due to their constant movement. Distribution of food is hampered by tensions between Ingushetia and North Ossetia, meaning that neither Ingus nor Ossetian drivers can be used.
In early September, a huge car bomb explosion, clearly intended for President Shevardnaze and which left him and other bystanders extremely shaken but otherwise unhurt, further raised tensions. But despite being considerably shaken, the Presidents response was that efforts to suppress the rebels would be redoubled.
