GROZNY, December 26 /TASS/. Ramzan Kadyrov, the head of the Chechen Republic, has blamed law enforcers for the inability to prevent a series of terrorist attacks in Grozny on December 4.
A group of unidentified gunmen that moved in three cars attacked a traffic police post in the Chechen capital of Grozny at 01:00 in the morning on December 4. After that, the militants penetrated into a nearby school and the Press House. Police blocked the two buildings. Four policemen were killed and 36 were wounded in the fighting that lasted for several hours. Eleven militants were killed.
“It was our fault and the fault of our law enforcement agencies. It was our shortcoming for which we paid dearly,” Kadyrov stressed.
The Press House re-opened in Grozny last Thursday. Three of its guards and a boiler-room operator were awarded medals “For Merits to the Chechen Republic” for the courage displayed while performing their line of duty. Journalists and employees of the republic’s Ministry for National Policy, External Relations, Press and Information were also decorated with medals.
It took less than three weeks to restore the damaged building. About 800 people took part in the restoration works.
The republican Press House is located in the Leninsky district of Grozny (92, Mayakovsky Street). It houses shops, cafes, republican Internet publications, newspapers and the offices of federal media outlets.
