Volgograd city oftears
, 30 2013

: /Reuters

Suicide bombers committed recent terrorist attacks in Volgograd. There were three attacks over the past three months killing 37and injuring 143. Itis with a high degree of probability that we can state that the last two terrorist attacks were connected.

On Monday the second terrorist attack in two days was made on Volgograd the third in the last three months. Citizens are in a panic. Immediately after Monday's bus explosion, false information about a terrorist attack on a tram and on bus routes appeared on social networks. Inaddition, the Volga emergency center received several false calls about threats. Cityauthorities urge people not to panic, but celebrations involving children for December 31in the city are cancelled, and Volgograd Region Governor Sergei Bazhenov declared five days of mourning in the region, from December 30to January 3rd.

Is it realistic to believe that we aresafe?
, 21 2013

ImageI cannot say that Isuffer from weak nerves these have been steeled after more than 10years in journalism. During this time Ihave lost track of how many crisis situations Ifound myself in, but nothing truly scary has ever happened.

I have never been so frightened for my life, or that of those Ilove, that Ihad to scrutinize the inside of a bus or subway car for explosive devices. Although for almost half a year since active preparations for the World Student Games began they have been calling on us to do this on public transport.

Trucks still park right next to public places without causing worry. Forgotten packages on the porch do not frightenus.

Right now there are so many alarming reports from Tatarstan, and so little reliable information, that putting together a coherent picture about what is going on, or believing that the situation is under control, is more and more difficult.

ImageKSENIYA LARINA: Good afternoon. Thisis Kseniya Larina at the mike and we are starting the program “Culture Shock”. Every year for the last 11years we here in the studio mark those tragic days, because it was on that day that the awful situation at Dubrovka was tragically resolved, 11years ago was this operation to liquidate a hotbed of terrorism and in the process killed 130hostages. Onehundred and thirty hostages. Children, actors, and theater workers, all killed at a performance of ‘Nord-Ost’ at Dubrovka, and now a part of history. There was an attempt to resurrect the play, to somehow extend its existence, but this did not work out. Today in our studio we have Dmitry Milovidov, a member of the ‘Nord-Ost’ (organization) coordinating council, and the father of two hostages, one of whom perished. Hello, Dmitry.

DMITRY MILOVIDOV: Good afternoon.

LARINA: Alexandra Rozovskaya is an actress, a leading actress from the Russian Academic Youth Theater. Hi, Sasha.


LARINA: At that time, 11years ago, Sasha was part of the cast of ‘Nord-Ost’, part of the children’s troupe, and she spent all those days at Dubrovka. Marina Litvinovich is a social activist, a journalist, and a human rights activist. Welcome and hello, Marina.

LITVINOVICH: Good afternoon.

Once again on 'Nord-Ost'
, 26 2013


ImageDue to health reasons, this year it was not possible for all of us to gather at that tragically famous spot on Dubrovka, the place where we lost brothers and sisters, children and parents, during the course of an operation more aimed at destroying terrorists than rescuing hostages. Certainly, history will answer the questions in full, but right now former hostages and relatives of deceased victims have already been fighting for the truth for 11years. Theyare fighting for the truth about the case and the truth about the deaths of their lovedones.

Last year on this day dozens of hostages and their families gathered for a sad anniversary of the event 10years since the tragedy of 'Nord-Ost'. Onthat day, October 26th, 2012, our principal applicants in this case old and new signed an appeal to those obligated to assure the appropriate work of investigative bodies in our country so that they finally organize a thorough and independent investigation, pursuant to the decision of the European Court in the 'Nord-Ost' case ("Finogenov & Others v. Russia "), and to determine all those circumstances that the authorities so carefully conceal from its own citizens.

'Nord-Ost' at 11years
, 21 2013

Today is a sad anniversary. Eleven years ago, on October 23rd, 2002, Chechen militants stormed and took hostage the theater on Dubrovka in Moscow.

The up-to-date, newly remodeled, and beautifully furnished building was hosting the musical 'Nord-Ost'. Gathered here was not a poor crowd the hall was full of nice suits and dresses, the scent of costly perfume, and the warble of pricey mobile phones.

In short, located here at ground zero were not the marginal members of society, but mainly representatives of the middle class that could spend a few hundred a lot more money back then than nowadays to go see this cultural project. Perhaps arguably cultural, since not one of the songs from the musical was even at least a seasonal hit, even after the tragedy.

The audience was probably about as happy as those not so poor people that bought tickets for the Titanic back in theday.

'Nord-Ost', meaning a nor'easter or northeast wind, turn out to be icy, and chilled all the way to the bone. Theglamorous spectacle became a true hell on earth. Paleactors, in the remnants of their makeup, climbed down from windows and told reporters what was going on. Whatthey said, of course, was confused, and confusing, which intensified the nightmarish atmosphere.

In memory of Politkovskaya
, 09 2013

Memory is increasingly a rarity these days. Itdisappears somewhere beneath the murky layers of unconscious time, somewhere consistently and deliberately edited from the minds of the well-fed for the sake of peace of mind in their gray matter. Donot remember, do not think, and do not know that is the truth that the majority places on a pedestal. Memory for them is dangerous; they do not need it because it can raise doubts about their ownpiety.

Anna Politkovskaya, the journalist from ‘Novaya Gazeta’ who was murdered in 2006, was remembered on the 7th of October in many cities around the world. Hername is born by streets and parks in Rome, Tbilisi, Milan, and Paris. Thisyear a collective act of memory took place in the city of Samara. Ittook place, and, perhaps, became something greater.

On October 7, the Samara House of Journalists and Writers held a round table discussion in memory of Anna Politkovskaya. Representatives attended from the publications such as ‘Gagarin Park’, ‘Zasekin.ru’, ‘Novaya Gazeta in the Volga region’, ‘Svoboda Information Agency’, as well as Svetlana Zhdanov, head of the local Roskomnadzor (Russian FTC). Alsoattending were activists from non-governmental organizations, and bloggers.. Participants shared their thoughts and memories of Anna Politkovskaya, and discussed issues concerning the freedom of speech in Russia, Togliatti, and Samara.
