Doctor Hassan Baiyev tells his story
Written by Василий Щуров   
Вторник, 29 Октябрь 2002
In the newspaper ‘Trud’
Recall that ‘Trud’ has written more than once about Hassan Baiyev, who during the fighting in Chechnya performed thousands of operations and saved the lives of wounded people. Thanks to the international organization ‘Doctors Without Borders’ he has a residency permit in the U. S. Yesterday our reporter contacted Baiyev while it was afternoon in Moscow but still early morning in Boston.
- Hassan, if it is not a secret, how did you make contact with Barayev’s people?
“It’s no secret. Govorukhin, Jr. asked me, and also by Belovetsky the journalist and an Interior Ministry general, it seems, by the name of Pronin. They wanted the rebels to receive a delegation for talks. The gave me a number and I called.”
- Did the militants agree to speak with you?
“I spent two wars in Chechnya in a hospital rescuing soldiers and officers, and militants, but most of all civilians. I also treated Barayev’s mother. I said my name and they knew me. I asked Movsar (Barayev) to receive the people I named, and to do what they wanted. He promised he would, and on my part I asked for two things: the release of the children and the sick among the hostages.”
- And what was Barayev’s answer?
“He said that the children were already released, and that there were no sick people… And in general, he said that they (the authorities) had not fulfilled his conditions, in particular they had not shown a tape the journalists had filmed. As I understood, they had a television set.”
- What else did you talk about?
“I said he should think about the consequences of the reckless actions that he’d begun. I said that the terrorist attack would be costly for many people, but especially for Chechens, living in Russia. He replied that he’d thought it all through.”
- From the tone of the conversation, was there some chance to persuade the militants to negotiate? Or were they going to see it through to the end no matter what?
“I think the latter. He told me straight out that he had no road back.”
