Answering a question about reports that the top Chechen terrorist Doku Umarov is dead, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev noted that law enforcers have not yet obtained solid proof of this.

I think that until the proof of death is presented for certain terrorists (I do not want to pronounce any names here), the special services must list them as alive. When such proof is presented the terrorist’s name must be taken off the list of the living,” Dmitry Medvedev made this statement during his recent interview with CNN.

The PM answered the question whether he possessed any information about the fate of Russia’s most wanted man – Doku Umarov. The head of the Chechen Republic, Ramzan Kadyrov, has repeatedly announced that this terrorist leader is dead.

On January 16, Kadyrov again reported that the security services had intercepted the terrorists’ radio communications in which they acknowledged the death of their leader and discussed possible candidacy of his successor.

Umarov last appeared alive in a video posted on the internet last summer. He called upon his supporters to step up terrorist activities in order to thwart the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics.Umarov has not featured in any videos since then, but the terrorist underground has refused to acknowledge his death, at least in public statements.

Medvedev said that there was no terrorist threat to athletes and spectators arriving for the Sochi Olympics.

We are absolutely sure that we will be able to protect all athletes at the Olympics and I will repeat it, we will do our best to host the Olympics very well,” he stated. “Frankly, there are no more threats to the Olympics in Sochi than there are to Olympics in other places. The world is global. We know about the sad events that have taken place at sports events in other countries, including the United States, and it is unjust and wrong to say that all threats now concentrate around Sochi.”

Medvedev also noted that Russian and US special services have reached a good level of cooperation in providing security at the forthcoming Olympics.

Yes , Indeed Krysta, for all the 12 Crusades, the results were the same. and this here is the 13th...same thang!

  


all of the crusades took place at times when millions of whites were enslaved and half of europe was under muslim rule and the oppression, jizya, rape, mass murder, enslavement.There's a reason why europes dark ages happened during islams golden age, it doesn't take a genius to figure out where that prosperity came from but it takes a mental contortionist or a brainwashed fool to rationalize that the crusades were wrong but islam's war is Ok.

west rome fell from within, the west lacked a superpower and muslims saw an opportunity so they invaded east and western europe, enslaving millions and killing millions more, the eastern invasion failed and only managed to capture most of Anatolia and parts of greece it wasn't until the balance of power in europe shifted to the west and the renaissance began(by kicking out the non-white oppressors) that the muslims conquered the east for 700y

Aga in another RT blogger. If you ever read world history you would know that slavery has existed and still exists through out the history of mankind everywhere.

  


th ey're brainwashed marxists who latch on to white bashing because they've been taught that it's noble introspection when they attack whites for crimes that have been committed against them ten fold by the other races and that it's just hateful xenophobia to criticize other groups"the protected groups". The most ironic part is that whites and whites only abolished slavery and died in thousands
