How a Muscovite became a terrorist
Written by ,   
, 30 2013


The sounds of explosions have already been heard in Volgograd this year. InOctober, a female suicide bomber named Naida Asiyalova blew herself up on a public bus, killing seven. Another bomb went off near a highway patrol station. Those guilty of blowing up the bus have been named, but in order to understand why Volgograd has once again become a target for terrorists, it is worth knowing about the investigation and who these peoplewere.

Until this fall, it had been a long time since Volgograd had reports of incidents related to terrorist attacks. Thelast time was in 2004, shortly before Beslan, when a female suicide bomber blew up an airplane in route to Volgograd from Moscow.

Just this last October 21st (2013) bus number 29in Krasnoarmeysky region was driving along at full speed when an explosive device went off. Literally within a few hours, law enforcement agencies mentioned the name of suicide bomber: Naida Asiyalova, a native of Dagestan. Thefederal broadcast channel first showed her undamaged passport (photo), dressed in a hijab. Thenext day, however, the document was presented showing a different photo, which was singed by fire. Atthe time there was information that Asiyalova was literally torn to pieces, and a bit later that the organizer of the terrorist attack was her husband, Dmitry Sokolov, a young Muscovite who had converted to Islam and gone with Asiyalova in Dagestan, where her relatives lost track of him. Thisstory bears the marks of the Russian security services as we have come to know them over the past tenyears.

On Monday the second terrorist attack in two days was made on Volgograd the third in the last three months. Citizens are in a panic. Immediately after Monday's bus explosion, false information about a terrorist attack on a tram and on bus routes appeared on social networks.

Is it realistic to believe that we aresafe?

ImageI cannot say that Isuffer from weak nerves these have been steeled after more than 10years in journalism. During this time Ihave lost track of how many crisis situations Ifound myself in, but nothing truly scary has ever happened.

I have never been so frightened for my life, or that of those Ilove, that Ihad to scrutinize the inside of a bus or subway car for explosive devices. Although for almost half a year since active preparations for the World Student Games began they have been calling on us to do this on public transport.

Trucks still park right next to public places without causing worry. Forgotten packages on the porch do not frightenus.

Right now there are so many alarming reports from Tatarstan, and so little reliable information, that putting together a coherent picture about what is going on, or believing that the situation is under control, is more and more difficult.
