Suicide bombers committed recent terrorist attacks in Volgograd. There were three attacks over the past three months killing 37and injuring 143. Itis with a high degree of probability that we can state that the last two terrorist attacks were connected.

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. Inaddition, the Volga emergency center received several false calls about threats. Cityauthorities urge people not to panic, but celebrations involving children for December 31in the city are cancelled, and Volgograd Region Governor Sergei Bazhenov declared five days of mourning in the region, from December 30to January 3rd.

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.

Strasbourg, a Russiancity

ImageWhat the European Court of Human Rights can and cannot do when considering the complaints from citizens of the Russian Federation

The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) regularly requires the Russian Federation to pay compensation to its citizens. Forits part, the Russian Federation implicitly executes the court’s decisions. Therestoration of justice, however, is far more complicated. Itis probably because of this that the stream of complaints from citizens of Russia in Strasbourg is only growing.

Beslan waits

In the near future the ECHR may end the communication phase on complaints from the Beslan victims. Thecommunication phase is the name of the procedure during which the court shall inform a state defendant of a complaint, and the state responds to the court’s questions. These questions are based on the arguments of the applicant. Theapplicant, in turn, responds to the state’s responses. Themost probable date for completion of this phase is the end of 2013. Karinna Moskalenko, head of the International Protection Center and one of the leading experts on the ECHR, is one of the representatives of the Beslan victims. Sheexpressed this assumption in an interview with the newsmagazine ‘Sovershenno Sekretno’. Thevictims expressed this same hope during the latest the ninth anniversary of the tragedy.
