Russian security services guilty in the deaths of Nord-Ost
Tuesday, 20 December 2011

Strasbourg reaches a decision on ‘Nord-Ost’. OnDecember 20th, the European Court of Human Rights almost fully satisfied claims by victims and relatives of the deceased victims of the terrorist attack on the theatrical center at Dubrovka.


The applicants themselves consider today’s decision by Strasbourg to be a real victory, and had been waiting for several years. Nowthey hope that an objective investigation into the incident will take place. Thevictims and relatives of the deceased hostages filed their claims with the European Court back in 2003.

In their petitions, they demanded that those who planned the hostage rescue operation be brought to justice. Thesecurity forces at the time released a poisonous gas into the auditorium where the audience and actors of the musical ‘Nord-Ost’ were being held hostage. Information about the gas is still a secret. Theplaintiffs believe that the use of this gas killed and injured not only the terrorists, but a large number of hostages aswell.

They also state that the government was unable to organize necessary medical assistance to the victims. There were no measures taken to block off traffic so that ambulances could quickly reach the hospitals, and physicians at the hospitals simply had no idea how to treat people poisoned by an unknown gas. Intheir lawsuits, they also pointed out that there was no effective investigation into the incident.
