Appeal to the Chairman of the Government of the RF
Written by Ирина Халай   
Среда, 05 Ноябрь 2008
1Honored Vladimir Vladimirovich,

September 16th, 2008, was the 9th anniversary of the largest terrorist attack in Russia, in the town of Volgodonsk, the Rostov region. Officially more than 15,000 were injured, 1000 of them children, while the aftermath of that terrible tragedy still affects our children and us.

On July 11th, 2002, the Council of Europe Committee approved 'Guidelines on human rights and the fight against terrorism', in which Article XVII 'Compensation for victims of terrorist acts' states:

«If damages cannot fully be recovered from other sources, particularly through the confiscation of property belonging to the perpetrators, organizers and sponsors of terrorist acts (such as in our case), with respect to such acts committed on its territory, the State must contribute to the compensation of victims for their losses and injuries.»
On June 1st, 2007, the Council of Europe Convention on the Prevention of Terrorism CETS 196 entered into law in Russia. Article 13 of this Convention is 'Protection of compensation and support for victims of terrorism'.

The Russian Federation, despite signing these international treaties, still has not determined the status or legal concept of 'victim of a terrorist act' and 'disabled as a result of a terrorist act'.

Adopted in 2006, Federal Law 35, 'On Combating Terrorism' does not define the status of 'victim of a terrorist act' and 'disabled as a result of a terrorist act'. Russian Federation Government Resolution 6 of January 12th, 2007, applies to legal relations arising from January 1st, 2007. The federal budget of the Russian Federation has no expenditures for the victims of terrorist attacks. Due to this legal vacuum, both adults and children who were not protected by law are caused to suffer.

Based on the above, we ask that Federal Law 35, 'On Combating Terrorism', be brought into accordance with signed international treaties. This is because the bill, 'On social protection of victims of terrorist acts', which we sent to all entitled to initiate legislation in accordance with Article 104 of the Constitution of the Russian Federation, has not found support anywhere.
