Investigators estimate cost of Domodedovo airport terror attack

Цветы, возложенные в память о погибших вInvestigators have calculated the cost of organizing the terrorist attack on Moscow airport Domodedovo to have been approximately 500 thousand rubles (about $20,000), according to an article in ‘Kommersant’.

According to investigators, the biggest expense for the terrorists was the purchase of an automobile. This was intended for Rustam Altemirov and Zaurbek Amriyev to scout out the most convenient sites for an attack. Two other accomplices, Islam and Iles Yandiyev, also used the vehicle to meet Magomed Yevloyev at the Moscow bus terminal. Yevloyev was the immediate perpetrator of the terrorist attack, and came from Ingushetia.

The attackers chose Domodedovo from among the several metropolitan airports because there, according to the scouts’ observations, security was the most negligent in checking out people passing through metal detectors by the airport entrance. Security often walked away from the metal detectors, while many of the passengers, taking advantage of the crowded conditions, avoided them altogether — as did suicide bomber Yevloyev on the day of the bombing.

In addition to the car, the terrorists spend money on mobile phones and a rented apartment in Moscow. On January 24th, 2011, Yevloyev went by taxi to the site of the bombing. Under his clothing he wore an explosive device. The cost of building the bomb apparently was not included in the investigators’ estimate of 500 thousand rubles.

As a result of the bombing at Domodedovo’s international arrivals area, 37 people were killed, and another 180 injured. Vladimir Putin, speaking for the authorities, initially denied the existence of a ‘Chechen trail’, but on February 8th Doku Umarov, the leader of the banned ‘Caucasus Emirate’ group, took credit for the terror attack. According to investigators, in January of 2011 he prepared at least three bombings for Moscow, but two of them were unsuccessful.

In late March two of the main organizers of the terrorist attack on Domodedovo – the Yandiyev brothers — were detained. On September 16th the two scouts, Altemirov and Amriyev, who were on the international ‘most-wanted’ list, were killed in Istanbul by unknown visitors from Russia. On October 26th Doku Umarov and the head of the southwestern from of the 'Caucasus Emirate, Aslan Byutukayev, were tried in absentia. Five other people remain on the ‘most-wanted’ list.
