“I saw that piece of news (quoting statements by some Verkhovna Rada members in support of the terrorist attack in Grozny and the wish to see a 'second front' opened in Russia’s Caucasus region) after I addressed the OSCE meeting,” Lavrov told a news conference on Friday. “That’s blasphemous and cynical. I believe there are even sufficient reasons for the law enforcement agencies to consider the possibility of opening a criminal case.”
At about 01:00 a.m. Moscow Time Thursday (22:00 UTC Wednesday) a group of unknown assailants driving three cars attacked a traffic police checkpoint in Grozny. Then militants penetrated the Press House where republican newspapers, web publications and offices of federal media are based, and a school.
Law enforcers blocked the buildings, and a counterterrorism operation was launched in downtown Grozny. Russia’s National Antiterrorism Committee (NAC) told TASS Thursday that 10 militants were neutralized as a result of the operation in Grozny.
