"The people, whose relatives were killed in the course of numerous wars and conflicts with illegal armed formations, remain captives of medieval vendetta. We can see manifestations of that from time to time. Women, who lost their husbands, brothers, sometimes children, they take revenge. They do not care who will be their victims - they only need to kill those representing the ethnic nationality that, as they believe, was the factor that deprived them of their loved ones. I do not see any other motives of this crime. We can remember that from the hostage crisis in the Moscow music theater, when there were many female suicide bombers from this category of criminals," Doctor of Historical Sciences, MGIMO professor, retired KGB lieutenant-general Nikolai Leonov told Pravda.Ru.
