Trading upon the terrorist act in Vladikavkaz2010-09-13 19:03
When two countries are at fighting terms with each other just like Georgia and Russia it's hard to believe the sincerity of condolences recently expressed by Georgian Foreign Ministry in respect of the terrorist act in North Ossetia. As the statement goes, Tbilisi is ready to help only in case of "a relevant appeal". Such note was made simultaneously with Grigol Vashadze's invitation to start a bilateral dialogue on "deoccupation", avoiding the issue of responsibility for the murder of Ossetians and peacekeepers in 2008.
The terrorist act in Vladikavkaz became the largest one in North Ossetia in the recent years. The force of the Volga explosion equaled to 30-40 kilos of tritol. By this morning, the number of the dead reached 18 people, including the terrorist. Mourning has been declared in the republic.
Over 100 wounded were immediately taken to hospital. Medicines and medical equipment have been delivered to the North-Caucasian republic from the Russian capital. 11 wounded were taken back by an EMERCOM plane and were accommodated at Moscow federal medical centers and hospitals. Two serious patents were left in North Ossetia, for they are so far unfit for transportation.
Works on reconstruction of the damaged dwellings were started in Vladikavkaz immediately. Last night, the crews installed window panes and helped remove the debris of the blown-up car and damage agents.
Russian regions expressed condolences to Head of the republic Teymuraz Mamsurov and the victims' families. Other states, including US, also sent their words of consolation. And only the "hostile" Georgia found it necessary to offer help.
"Terrorism cannot be justified. We have always criticized any display of terrorism. Georgian Foreign Ministry is sorry for the people who died in the result of the terrorist act and expresses condolence to their families and relatives", - the foreign ministry says.
This is a repeated formal expression of sympathy to the address of Russia on Georgia's part during the diplomatic break of relations. This March, after the terrorist act in Moscow metro, the Georgian president's press service disseminated a similar message: "President of Georgia declaims against any display of terrorism, particularly, against peaceful citizens".
