MOSCOW, March 29. /TASS/. Muscovites and visitors to Russia’s capital are bringing flowers and candles to the sites of the explosions that claimed the lives of 40 people in the Moscow subway seven years ago.
Tables were set up on the platforms of the Lubyanka and Park Kultury stations in downtown Moscow, covered with red carnations, burning candles and oil lamps. The few straphangers passing through these stations on Wednesday paused for a moment near the flowers. Other passengers upon seeing the memorial, understood and exited the subway cars to silently pay their respects for a few minutes, recalling all those whose lives came to an abrupt end because of the suicide blasts.
The double bombings that had rocked the Moscow subway on March 29, 2010, left 40 people dead and 160 others injured. The explosive devices were set off by female suicide bombers, known as ‘black widows’.
The ringleader behind these explosions, Magomedali Vagabov, was eliminated in Russia’s North Caucasus Republic of Dagestan in August 2010.
