  • Russia's Czar Wars Aren't Over

    Monday's attacks on Moscow's subways provide an odious reminder of the Russian empire's post-Cold War instability and the Russian government's severe internal challenges. As this column goes to press, no organization has claimed responsibility for the attacks that left 39 dead and scores wounded, though Russian commentators and international analysts suspect Islamist-inspired separatists in the northern Caucasus region planned and executed the terror strikes. Russian security forces are fighting guerrilla and terrorist cells based in troubled Caucasus political fragments like Dagestan, Ingushetia and Chechnya. Islamist separatist groups from these areas have used "the woman-delivered weapon" in previous attacks on Russian...

    During the terror act a Karaganda boy was shot Ten year-old Zaur Gutnov from our city was shot by terrorists. After the explosion in the school gym, when the falling wall opened a path to safety for the hostages, the boy did not make it. His mother, who leaves in Karaganda, could not find the money to dash to Beslan. The explosions and shootings at the Osetian school were seen by Natal'ya Gutanova on television, but only after the funeral of her son... The photograph, crossed by a black ribbon of mourning, shows a laughing boy. He was born in...

    Russian Defense Minister ruled out the use of nuclear weapons in the fight against terror Pre-emptive strikes against terrorist bases will not include the use of nuclear weapons. This was declared by RF Minister of Defense Sergey Ivanov on the air (during an interview on Russian television station) NTV this Sunday. "A pre-emptive strike may include anything possible except for the use of a nuclear weapon. If they've declared war on us, and we've undergone an attack, well excuse me, in a war all means are well and good" the minister said. "When I spoke of pre-emptive strikes - this...

    Minister unwilling to blame Chechens Jonathan Steele and agencies in Moscow Wednesday September 8, 2004 The Guardian Not a single Chechen has been found among the dead gunmen who took children hostage in Beslan last week, Sergei Ivanov, Russia's defence minister, told the Guardian yesterday. "About half of the 32 terrorists have been identified and we have not yet discovered anyone from Chechnya," he said. The comment was a clear effort to back up the Kremlin's claim that last week's attack was not a result of Russia's actions in Chechnya. The defence minister's remarks came as other statements from prosecutors...
  • Turkey : There can be no double-standard on the ism issue

    You either oppose all those who engage in acts of ism or you bow down to living with ism. You cannot say the Chechen ism is good. It would be useful to heed the Russian reaction in this respect Russian Federation's Ambassador to Turkey A. Lebedev's reaction has been quite justified. The tone of the statement he made to the media, some of the words he used, were quite harsh. Obviously he was beside himself with anger. As an experienced diplomat, he should be able to control his feelings. Maybe he acted in this manner because he thought that he...

    Double Standards: Bandits Are Good, Terrorists Are Bad For CNN, and actually not only for CNN, the Russian Government and Chechen rebels are almost the same thing. Already several hours after Baraev captured the audience of the musical Nord-Ost, the main site of Chechen militants became practically inaccessible. The reason why “the main information calibre” of the terrorists broke down so soon is easy to guess. Just after the start of the events, the universally known TV company CNN started to add two links to all its publications about the Moscow tragedy – bringing to Russian Information Centre (official...

    Government: Man indicted on phony check charge says he could provide terrorism information The government is investigating whether Shishani has ties to terrorist organizations, but his name is not on the terrorist watch list created by U.S. intelligence agencies. Two of the checks found were for $5 million each; two were for $500,000 each; and five were for $200,000 each, an affidavit said. The checks, labeled ``cashier check,'' were purportedly issued by the Pomona, Calif., branch of West America Bank. Shishani's brother, Ali, said Wednesday that he had little information on the checks found in his brother's possession other than...
