VOLGOGRAD, March 02, /ITAR-TASS/. An address delivered by leader of Ukrainian far-right movement Right Sector Dmitry Yarosh to warlord of international terrorist organisation Imarat Caucasus Doku Umarov with an appeal “to unite forces” places Yarosh and Umarov on a par, as only terrorists can co-operate with terrorists, Governor of southern Russia’s Volgograd Region Sergey Bozhenov told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
“Umarov is recognized as an international criminal not only in Russia, but also in the United States. Yarosh’s readiness to become Umarov’s accomplice makes him outlawed and demands sanctions against him and those who support him,” Bozhenov believes.
Umarov and his bandits brought much grief in the region, the governor said. “Umarov’s gunmen are masterminds and perpetrators of horrible explosions in the city of Volgograd in October and December 2013 that claimed 40 lives, including women and children, and wounded more than 100 civilians,” Bozhenov recalled.
In the previous year the southern Russian city of Volgograd came under several attacks of terrorists. On October 21, a female suicide bomber blasted a bus. Suicide bombings were staged at the city’s railway terminal on December 29 and on a trolleybus in the city on December 30.
