Vyacheslav Nikonov: our country is at war with terrorism


Vyacheslav Nikonov is sure that the terrorist attack, which happened April 3 in St. Petersburg, will be thoroughly investigated, according to the press service of State Duma committee for Education and Science.

“Our country is at war with terrorism for many years. We know that in many cases terrorist attacks were prevented, however some powers exist which aim at destabilizing our country to the maximum extent and kill our nationals. Somebody declared a war to us openly like the Islamic state or Al-Qaida (organizations banned in Russia – editor’s comment). We are among top enemies for a sufficiently large number of countries including the only superpower on the planet. That is why our state feels extreme pressure,” the State Duma deputy claimed this during the TV programme 60 minutes on air of the Russia TV Channel.

«Russian Intelligence services have been working very efficiently for the last years, but, unfortunately not all the efforts were fruitful, besides terrorists learn too. They are ready to take any possible measures to suppress our will to counteraction and destabilize the society of our country”, the politician remarked.

“I am sure that this terrorist attack will be thoroughly investigated. All metro stations are equipped with video cameras. We will absolutely get a clear picture of what has happened and find out who the executor is. I hope that we will find the customer too, however this is much harder,” Vyacheslav Nikonov added.

Vyacheslav Nikonov expressed his sincere condolences to relatives and friends of the perished and wished to find enough strength and energy to the injured struggling for their lives.

Izvestia talked to Russians living in the country to find out how the January events had affected their relations with Kazakhs.
