CHECHEN REPUBLIC OF ICHKERIA
PRESS-OFFICE OF PRESIDENT
Press- Office of the President of the Chechen Republic Ichkeria hereby declares that the today's terrorist act on the Pushkin Square in Moscow has no connection whatsoever to Chechen Armed Forces.
The Chechen Republic of Ichkeria has always condemned terrorism in all forms. The Chechen Armed Forces have never targeted civilians and never will. We are fighting against Russian Occupational Forces; not against Russian civilians.
Unfortunately, Russian political and military leadership has a bitter experience of blowing up of civilian premises and then putting blame on Chechens without producing any evidence.
The Chechen Republic of Ichkeria offers sincere condolences to the victims' families. We sincerely hope that those responsible for the today's and last September's terrorist acts will be brought to justice.
Press-Office of President.
