| On behalf of the Russian Democratic Party YABLOKO I express
condolences to the families of the victims of the act of terror in the
Moscow Metro on February 6, 2004, and all those who suffered hours of agony
and uncertainty as they waited to hear from their next to kin.
Terrorism is a bloody barbarinism. This is not the first time that Russia
has been laid low. All the political forces should unite in the fight
against terror to free our compatriots from terror and fear for their
There is no justification for terrorism - neither political or religious
any other. There is no justification for murder or murder threats of
innocent and defenseless people. Terrorism does not arise from poverty
suffering, or even revenge. It is simply villainy which knows no boundaries.
The Russian Democratic Party YABLOKO is ready to provide any aid that
victims and the authorities in Moscow and Russia may need.
We feel this grief together with everyone else.
Chairman of the party
