Doku Umarov threatens Russia with a ‘Year of Tears’
Written by Lenta.ru   
Суббота, 05 Февраль 2011

ImageDoku Umarov, leader of the North Caucasus underground, has threatened Russia with new attacks. In a video posted on one of the extremists’ websites, Umarov vowed “a year of blood and tears.” According to the militant, he plans to commit acts of terrorism once a week or once a month, leaving their regularity “at the discretion of Allah.”

Umarov said that his militants in Russia were supposedly carrying out a certain mission, and that he had sent a “warrior” by the name of Sayfullah to do the job.
The newspaper ‘Novaya Gazeta’ suggested that Sayfullah was the suicide bomber who attacked Domodedovo. Journalists from ‘Caucasus Online’ also adhere to the theory that Umarov was referring to the terrorist attack at the capital city airport.
As targets of Umarov’s planned terrorist attacks, he named those who do not like Islam and mock people from the Caucasus. Umarov, however, did not specify his reasons for targeting the arrivals hall at Domodedovo, which resulted in the deaths of citizens of Tajikistan and Uzbekistan — countries with majority Muslim populations.
An act of terrorism at Domodedovo airport occurred on January 24th, 2011, when a suicide bomber detonated explosives with a power of 2 to 5 pounds of TNT in the arrivals halls. Not counting the terrorist, 36 people were killed, and 180 received wounds of varying severity.
After the terrorist attack on Domodedovo, telephonic threats increased in several Russian cities. In Moscow, following the bombing of the airport, several large shopping centers had to be evacuated because of bomb threats. The last such incident occurred on Saturday, February 5th, when a threatening phone call forced the police to evacuate all visitors from the ‘Atrium’ shopping mall on Kursk, and search it for explosives.
In early February, a number of officials, including Vladimir Putin, announced that the terrorist attack had been solved, but shortly thereafter Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said that it was premature to make such statements before any court decision. After the terrorist attack, a series of retirements in the ranks of law enforcement followed: the leadership of the agency responsible for security at Domodedovo airport was axed.
Doku Umarov, who calls himself the “Emir of the Caucasus Emirate,” has repeatedly claimed responsibility for bombings in Moscow. In particular, Umarov claimed involvement in the double bombing of the Moscow subway in March 2010.
