130 осталось в Норд-Осте

I hasten to bring you good news — the collected materials have been submitted in preparation for printing, and so soon, very soon, you will not only be able to read the Memorial Book on our site, but browse through it in hard copy as well.

Many thanks to those who responded to our request and told about loved ones who died at Dubrovka, and thanks as well to those journalists who wrote about the lives of these people. Without your help this book would never have been written.

Thanks to public and political figures — all who tried to save the hostages back then, and who now support our project:

…The Book of Memory is but a small fraction of what we have been able to do for the 130 persons who were killed at Dubrovka, October 23–26, 2002. A person lives on in the memories of friends, relatives, colleagues.

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. They all still live in the pages of this book and in the memories of the survivors. We hope they will live in your memory as well.

This book was published with the assistance of the Office of the Mayor of Moscow.

Terrorist attack on Dubrovka: A case, but no answers
Written by Любовь Чижова   
Wednesday, 17 December 2014


The reopening of the investigation into the October 2002 attack 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. In 2007, the Moscow city prosecutor's office suspended the investigation due to the fact that it was not possible to detain organizers of the attack. Six terrorist accomplices received sentences ranging from 8 1/2 to 22 years in prison. ICRF representative Vladimir Markin reported on the arrest of Chechen native Hassan Zakayev, who is suspected of organizing the attack. He was arrested in August, but information about this has only lately appeared in the media.

'Nord-Ost' set the value of a citizen’s life

'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. It seems high time all these Nor’easters to grow out of it. So what? All the terrorists involved in the hostage taking were killed, and all lawsuits — both in Russia and abroad — had their day in court. Some people were compensated… But relatives and former hostages still kick up a fuss, still looking for some kind of truth. But why?

To better to understand why, in a nutshell, let me remind you what ‘Nord-Ost’ means. Let me remind you what happened back then at Dubrovka, and that has been going for the last 12 years — because ‘Nord-Ost’ did not end with the assault and the death of 130 hostages. It has been continuing and I would even venture to say, still continues. It leaves 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.

Очевидцы теракта 1999 года в Волгодонске — о том, как изменился город спустя 15 лет после трагедии


В первой половине сентября 1999 года по стране прошла серия терактов: 4 сентября — у пятиэтажного дома в дагестанском Буйнакске, 8-го взрыв прогремел в Москве на улице Гурьянова, 13-го — на Каширском шоссе. Ранним утром 16 сентября в спальном районе Волгодонска взорвался ГАЗ-53. Накануне террористы купили машину у местного жителя якобы для перевозки на рынок картофеля. Документы купли-продажи договорились оформить утром, а ночь его попросили подежурить в машине. Автомобиль припарковали прямо напротив одного из подъездов. После пяти утра мужчине стало холодно в салоне, и он вернулся в квартиру. В 5:57 «картошка» мощностью в две тонны тротилового эквивалента взорвалась.

По степени разрушений этот теракт остается самым масштабным в стране. Взрывная волна полностью разрушила фасадную часть двух подъездов и перекрытия, вынесла стекла и рамы, скрутила двери. Всего в двух городских кварталах было повреждено 37 домов. Погибло 19 человек, более 15 тысяч — около 10% волгодонского населения — официально признаны пострадавшими в разной степени.
