Leader of the Chechen terroristic organization claimed responsibility for Russian train bombing

The bombing was described as the part of terrorist attack series

In brief: Doku Umarov claimed responsibility for bombing the Nevsky Express

Last Friday an express train called the Nevsky Express was hit by a homemade bomb on its way to Moscow from Saint-Petersburg. Doku Umarov, leader of the Chechen rebels in the North Caucasus, claimed responsibility for this terrorist act at Wednesday.

The claim was posted on Kavkazcenter.com, a website known for similar statements by North Caucasus groups. Umarov’s web statement described Friday’s attack as the part of a series of operations targeting Russia strategic places. Such diversions are said to continue for as long as the Caucasus occupants won’t stop killing people basing on their religious views.

The funerals were held of some of the 26 people who died during the bombing. Sergei Tarasov, a former St Petersburg vice-governor, and Boris Yevstratikov, head of the Federal Agency for State Reserves, were buried among them on Tuesday.
