Barayev then quieted the hall down, and said that the next day, on October 26th, that they would finally begin negotiations with General Kazantsev, who had been authorized by the government to do so. Talks were to begin at 10or 11in the morning. Barayev said that everyone could relax until then, because there would be no assault until negotiations began, but their further actions would depend on the results of the talks with Kazantsev. Relaxed people then began to settle themselves in tosleep.

The last time Ilooked at my watch, it was 3:20 A.M.One of the Chechens said: It's boring in your Moscow, I'm going to go do some shooting. He left the hall, and Iheard some shots. Ithought that Ishould get some sleep, so that morning would arrive more quickly. Sasha and Sandy were asleep in each other's arms. Ifell asleep, and woke up in the intensive care section of the cardiology ward of Hospital No. 7.

Ilearned about Sasha's death from the radio on October 27th, 2002. Thecircumstances of her death, how she had been crushed under a pile of bodies during transport to the hospital, Ilearned this from the news, and from people who at been present at her identification. Ilearned of Sandy's death from workers from the American embassy on October 28th, 2002. WhenI went to the morgue to identify him on the 29th, Ilearned that he had received no medical assistance whatsoever.

Iam frequently accused of not being objective; they say that Isuffer from 'Stockholm syndrome'. Ireally have no reason to side with the Chechens: they set up the situation that resulted in the death of my entire family. Iunderstand clearly that even in spite of the Chechens' acts my loved ones could have been saved had the authorities not undertaken this senseless, illogical assault, which could protect no one, and could have led the Chechens to blow everyone up. Theassault itself was the cause of my loved ones' deaths.
