13976.jpegGeorgian ministry of foreign affairs resents over a statement made by Russia's deputy chair of Federation Council Alexander Torshin accusing Georgia of involvement in the terrorist attack in the airport of Domodedovo in Moscow in January 2011.


As News Georgia reports, Georgian deputy FM Nino Kalandadze called this statement "revolting and groundless". "This statement is revolting. It should be highlighted that such statements are heard still more often on the part of Russia's official representatives", - Kalandadze stated today at an official briefing in the Ministry of Foreign affairs. According to her, "this statement must be considered as part of a more serious intention" and "this is not a statement of an individual". She also remarked that Russian law-enforcement authorities had made no hint that Georgia might be involved in the blast.

It will be remembered, as it was reported today, that Alexander Torshin, first deputy chairman of the Council of Federation, member of the National Anti-Terrorist Committee,  in charge of the Caucasian Commission believes that Georgia is involved in the terrorist attack in Domodedovo airport in Moscow. He does not think that militant Doku Umarov is fully responsible for the blast. "He only accepted the money of the masterminds handing it over. Thus, he was an intermediary and an accomplice, but even this role seems doubtful. I am certain that the bombing was masterminded abroad" - A. Torshin said.

The explosion in Domodedovo airport of Moscow took place on January 24 resulting in nearly 40 deaths and 150 injuries. Following the attack Russian president Dmitry Medvedev stated that Domodedovo security system had long been in anarchy and that the airport management would be called to account. After the tragedy a number of officials in charge of transport security were dismissed from their posts.
