The situation in the North Caucasus Republic of Dagestan continues to deteriorate. Last Saturday, a female suicide bomber blasted herself at the republican Interior Ministry building in Makhachkala. A policeman was killed in the explosion, a woman died at the hospital, 18 people were wounded. This is already the second terrorist act, which was committed in the city last week. On Monday, May 20, the bomb blast went off at the building of the Federal Bailiff Service.
The bomb explosion went off in downtown Makhachkala at the republican Interior Ministry building on May 25, the Moskovsky Komsomolets daily reported. A woman went up to the policemen, who were on the police mission to ensure the public order, and detonated the explosive device at about the noon. Fifteen people were wounded, one woman died at the hospital. Law enforcers and civilians were among wounded people.
The experts already managed to identify the suicide bomber and the power of the bomb, the Novye Izvestia daily reported. The National Anti-Terrorism Committee (NAK) reported that Madina Aliyeva, who was a common law wife of one of gunmen killed before, staged the Saturday suicide bomb attack.
It is not ruled out that Madina Aliyeva’s crime was an act of revenge for the death of her husband, former deputy commander of the united military group in the North Caucasus Boris Podoprigora told the newspaper, “The whole generation, which the suicide bomber belonged to, grew up and does not imagine another life to themselves, expect for a constant bloodshed.”
The Saturday explosion made acting Dagestani President Ramazan Abdulatipov urgently come back from Moscow to Makhachkala, the Kommersant daily noted. “The terrorist acts committed in Makhachkala resulted from unlawfulness, corruption in the local authorities that that have been worsening for a long period of time,” Abdulatipov stated. “Purge your villages, districts and towns from evil, save your children, your future,” he told the residents of the republic.
