On the 8th of December Russian forces controlled half the northern section and all the western half of the city but they had pulled out of the eastern during the night after heavy fighting caused a retreat, during the day Chechen paramilitary's and Soltirean forces were fighting side by side to hold the presidential palace from Russian tank and infantry forces it is unknown how many died holding that area but the Soltirean and Chechen forces held out after wiping out most of the Russian tanks and infantry attacking.During the night of the 8th Russian force late for the attack after having to move around the Volgan Federations boarder had arrived and enter the city, Soltirean forces seemed to be on the breaking point as the Russians kept barraging the city inflicting heavy casualties defeat seemed to be on the horizon the defending forces had no food,water,shelter,electricity, and a ever decreasing amount of ammunition Karkas still in the city said that a retreat may be made to keep the Soltirean people alive. Then on decmeber 9th Reinforcement arrived from Georgia, Azerbaijan,and Armenia in a joint wide scale invasion of Russia to save karkas, The Russian high command then forced every soldier it had into Grozny declaring Total war on the Soltirean's, they killed civilians and surrendering Soltirean troops thousands were killed in this action but the Soltirean's and their supporters held on. On December 10 Russian forces were forced to retreat as the defending forces soon counter attacked and surrounded the Russian troops facing defeat the Russian commander's soon broke out and fell back past the Volgan,Russian,Soltirean Boarder ending the 5 day battle at a heavy cost to both sides Almost 200,000 Russian troops died in the battle and it costed them nearly 30 billion dollars to fight it, for the Soltirean's and their allies the cost was estimated in the 200,000 or 300,000 range with tens of thousands of civilians dead and millions of dollars spent on the fight. one of the losses was great for a Soltirean woman who's husband was fighting in the city trying to protect her and their child from the Russian troops.
