MOSCOW, December 29, 22:23 /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian State Duma lower parliament house will raise the subject of the terrorist attack in Russia’s southern city of Volgograd as soon as it resumes work after the New Year break, deputy speaker and leader of the United Russia faction Vladimir Vasilyev said on Sunday.
“I am sure that this subject will be discussed at Duma’s first session after the holidays,” he told the Ekho Moskvy radion station. “This is for sure.” He said he had no doubts that the lawmakers would invite representatives from police and security agencies. “This instrument [of parliamentary control] will be employed. Of course, we will look into this subject, we will hear their reports about measures taken,” Vasilyev noted.
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 reports, as many as 16 people were killed in the blast, 43 sought medical assistance.
