We have collected their reminiscences, as well as the stories of sympathetic journalists.

The victims were diverse: from the very young to gray-haired elders; funny, talented, busy, dreaming of a career or finishing one with dignity. Theyall still live in the pages of this book and in the memories of the survivors. Wehope they will live in your memory aswell.

ECHR takes up claims of Beslan terrorist attack victims against Russian government

ImageThe European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has accepted for review lawsuits filed by victims of the terrorist attack on the school in the Russian city of Beslan (North Ossetia), which occurred in 2004, according to a press release by theECHR.

From 20072011, 477Russian citizens filed complaints against their government. Theyare consolidated into a case titled Tagayeva and others against Russia. Plaintiffs believe that Russian authorities violated their right to life, right to a fair trial, and freedom of expression. Inaddition, the applicants accuse law enforcement agencies of the Russian Federation of being unable to quickly and adequately respond to indications and warnings of the planned terrorist attack, and of failing to perform an effective investigation into the events. Someof the plaintiffs also argue that the deaths of many of the Beslan hostages were as a result of disproportionate use of force by law enforcement.

The reopening of the investigation into the October 2002attack on actors and spectators at the musical Nord-Ost

On Wednesday, Russia's Investigative Committee (ICRF) confirmed several media reports on the resumption of the criminal investigation into the seizure of the Dubrovka Theater Center, which occurred October 23, 2002. In2007, the Moscow city prosecutor's office suspended the investigation due to the fact that it was not possible to detain organizers of the attack. Sixterrorist accomplices received sentences ranging from 81/2 to 22years in prison. ICRFrepresentative Vladimir Markin reported on the arrest of Chechen native Hassan Zakayev, who is suspected of organizing the attack. Hewas arrested in August, but information about this has only lately appeared in themedia.

'Nord-Ost' set the value of a citizen’s life, but it has yet to be indexed

Even after the decision of the European Court, no one wants to name those really responsible for most of the hostage deaths at Dubrovka

ImageThe twelfth anniversary of ‘Nord-Ost’ is this Sunday. Russia does not like to recall such dates, however. Itseems high time all these Nor’easters to grow out of it. Sowhat? Allthe terrorists involved in the hostage taking were killed, and all lawsuits both in Russia and abroad had their day in court. Somepeople were compensated Butrelatives and former hostages still kick up a fuss, still looking for some kind of truth. Butwhy?

To better to understand why, in a nutshell, let me remind you what ‘Nord-Ost’ means. Letme remind you what happened back then at Dubrovka, and that has been going for the last 12years because ‘Nord-Ost’ did not end with the assault and the death of 130hostages. Ithas been continuing and Iwould even venture to say, still continues. Itleaves open a route for further blood to be spilled in our Russian reality, and to some extent even justifies it by convincingly showing us all that when people die in the name of the abstract interests of the state, no one will, or should, be found responsible.
