BASEL, December 5. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has described as blasphemous and cynical statements by some Ukrainian parliament members about the latest terrorist attack in Grozny.

“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.”

Terrorist attack on Grozny

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.
