Liberals condemn attack on Moscow Metro

LI News Issue 177, April 1, 2010

Sergei Mitrokhin, Leader of LI Full member YABLOKO, was quick to express his condolences after the deadly attacks on the Moscow Metro on Monday morning. “On behalf of the YABLOKO party I am expressing our deepest condolences to all the relatives of the victims of today's acts of terror, and our support and compassion to all the victims.” He added that Russians should thoroughly investigate the incidents, saying “I demand an objective and urgent investigation of these crimes. I find it necessary that not only the organisers of these acts of terror but also the heads of the security bodies who did not draw any lessons out of the previous crimes of this kind in Moscow and other cities in different parts of the world [will be interrogated].” LI President Hans van Baalen MEP issued a statement earlier this week condemning the attacks: “These cowardly attacks once again show the need for increased international cooperation in the fight against terror. Russia can not defeat terrorism alone. Putin and Medvedev need to reconsider their opposition to NATO and foster stronger relations with its member and partner countries in order to provide better security to its citizens.”

Terrorism has no excuse or justification. On this Monday morning in Moscow it has shown its ugliest face. A hideous crime was committed without concern or consideration for human life. We deplore in strongest terms and call to justice all of the perpetrators of this massacre. Fighting terrorism requires determination and cross-border partnership.

YABLOKO’s activists, donate your blood to the victims!

Alexei Melnikov, member of YABLOKO’s Bureau, specially for the web-site.March 29, 2010

Today the democratic opposition should be together with the people. Tomorrow we will discuss the atrocious acts committed by the terrorists and the role played by Putinís incapable government. Also we shall make the correct choice at the elections of the State Duma of Russia in 2011 and the President of Russia in 2012.

However, already today all YABLOKO’s civil activists who are registered in Moscow or in the Moscow Region can do what they can. It is necessary to give blood for those injured during the explosions in the Moscow metro.

It is necessary to give your blood free of charge and starting from tomorrow. You can do this, for example, at the Blood Transfusion Centre (Polikarpova 14), five minutes on foot from Begovaya metro station. You will need your passport at the Blood Centre. Information: (495) 945-75-45. Working hours for donors: Monday – Friday, also the 2nd and the 4th Saturdays of the month: 8.30 -13.30.

The author of these lines has already given his blood. I am calling all of you to follow my example.

A police state is a poor defense against terrorism

Sergei Mitrokhin’s blog at the Echo Moskvi radio web-site, March 29, 2010

On behalf of the YABLOKO party, I am expressing our deepest condolences to all the relatives of the victims of today’s acts of terror, and our support and compassion for all of the victims. I am demanding an objective and urgent investigation of these crimes.

I also find it necessary to investigate not only the organisers of these acts of terror, but also the heads of the security bodies who did not draw any lessons from the previous crimes of this kind that took place in Moscow and other cities across the world.

It would appear that the authorities have lulled themselves into a false sense of security with their own propaganda; the claims that they have successfully ended the war in the Caucasus, that they have allegedly achieved stability in Russia.

Is not it clear that after every operation against militants in the Caucasus we should not confine ourselves to bravura reports and press releases, but we must prepare for the terrorists’ acts of revenge in every Russian settlement, especially in crowded towns and cities...
