MOSCOW, December 29, 19:22 /ITAR-TASS/. Head of Russia’s North Caucasian Republic of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov has called to pass a law “overwhelmingly toughening punishment” for terrorist activities.
“I am absolutely confident that we cannot exterminate this evil by playing in democracy and humanity,” he wrote on Sunday in the Istragram social network, commenting on the Sunday act of terror in the city of Volgograd that killed 15 people. “I call on the State Duma [lower parliament house] to pass, at its next session, a law overwhelmingly toughening punishment for those who commit terrorist act and for those who share terrorist ideas, who propagate their ideology and train terrorists.”
He also called to outlaw all radical movements, parties and groups. “We must not divide criminals into good and bad,” he noted. “Terrorists are neither Muslims nor Christians, even if they pretend to be praying 24 hours a day.”
A female suicide bomber set off an explosive device at Volgograd’s central railway station at 12:45 Moscow time on Sunday. According to the latest data, the blast killed 15 people. As many as 45 people were wounded.
