MOSCOW, December 30, 18:47 /ITAR-TASS/. Terrorist acts in Volgograd, as sorties of terrorists in the United States, Syria, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan and other countries, are organised by a single pattern and have common inspirers, the Russian Foreign Ministry reported.
“Within the past 24 hours dozens of peaceful civilians, including women and children, fall victims of the terrorist acts in Volgograd. The investigation is underway. Medical aid is being provided. The lists of victims are being specified,” the report says.
“A new attack, which was cynically planned on New Year Eve, is another attempt to open an internal ‘front’, play havoc and chaos, and provoke inter-ethnic feud and conflicts in the Russian society. We won’t rebuff and continue the severe and consistent struggle against a treacherous enemy who ignores borders and can be stopped only by joint efforts. The criminal sorties in Volgograd as the terrorist attacks in the U.S., Syria, Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan are organised by a single pattern,” the ministry said.
“Amidst continuing provocative calls from gang group heads like as Doku Umarov for consolidating forces under the Jihad flag and involving new militants the positions by certain politicians and spin doctors, who divide terrorists into ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ depending on geopolitical goals, are becoming more and more destructive,” the ministry said.
“Such stances led to the most tragic consequences. Terrorism is a crime and punishment should be inevitable. Today terrorism should be condemned,” it said.
Russia expresses deep gratitude “to all world leaders, who following a statement by the U.N. Security Council of December 29, 2013 denounced the terrorist acts in Volgograd”. “We praise the statements by many world leaders, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and representatives of other international organisations,” the ministry said.
Russia considers the global community’s position “their resoluteness to fight terrorists where they were and what slogans they used to justify criminal actions”, the ministry said.
