Salting militants in barrels2012-11-14 15:37
Russian security officials learned how to polish off terrorists in the outhouse as soon as Vladimir Putin came to power. And now they are going to "salt them in barrels". In Chechnya, the clergy was forbidden to perform funeral service over the killed militants and burying them on the common cemeteries. Ingush leader Yunus-Bek Yevkurov, in response, said he would not hand out the bodies, since "to salt them" means to engender terrorism. "Yevkurov knows something about salting the bodies, if he's talking about it", Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov said.
The head of Ingushetia Yunus-Bek Yevkurov commented on the ban to bury militants in common cemeteries in Chechnya wrote in his blog: "If someone thinks that he can not to pass the body, not to bury normally, to salt them in barrels or something, we will simply engender terrorism even more".
Yevkurov's phrase, of course, does not imply any special manipulation of the body, and was used only as a figure of speech. But it has hit the bull's-eye.
Chechen leader was quick to respond on his official website. "Apparently, Yevkurov knows something about methods of "salting the human bodies in the barrels", if he's talking about it. In Chechnya no one had ever heard about this before, until Yevkurov wrote this", said in a statement by Kadyrov.
Yevkurov actually criticized not his colleague, but the decision of the Spiritual Board of Muslims of Chechnya. And the fact that Kadyrov took word about salting of bodies of militants on his own account exposes him either as the author of the ban on funeral or active lobbyist for the idea.
The two leaders of the neighboring republics have again demonstrated their different attitudes to terrorism. Yevkurov wants to bring the bandit underground into the light, and Kadyrov prefers to "polish off them in the outhouse". Yevkurov carries on a dialogue with the relatives of dead militants, and Kadyrov encourages the ban of Spiritual Board of Muslims traditionally to bury the corpses on the common cemeteries.
Yevkurov decided not to unleash war with militants. "It is important to understand there is the law on terrorism", recalled the head of Ingushetia in the blog. "This document clearly states who falls under the law on terrorism, etc., and also points to the fact that the bodies of terrorists cannot be handed out to the relatives. This is the law. Now about those who do not fall under the law on terrorism. After all investigative activities we must hand out the bodies, and let the relatives bury them. They use these examples to warn the remaining children in the family against committing the same crimes".
In response Kadyrov "strongly advised Yevkurov to look at the problem of security in Ingushetia, the more that unfortunately there are very much of them".
For Yevkurov, according to his adviser Beslan Tsechoyev, the ban on funerals in accordance with the custom is unacceptable not only from an ethical but also from a legal point of view. "The head of Ingushetia, Hero of Russia Yunus-Bek Yevkurov, supporter of the rule of law in Russia, believes that everything is secured in the law, so you just have to follow the letter of the law. I think that any other restrictions, not implied by the laws of the Russian Federation, such as the initiatives of public or religious organizations, which are coercive in nature, not really fit into the framework of the laws of Russia", said Tsechoyev in a conversation with a reporter of the "Big Caucasus". "Speaking about Yevkurov's methods, they are complex. And he has managed to stabilize the situation in the republic thanks to methods integrated and established in law".
