Russian experts urge upgrade of terror prevention system

Russian blasts necessitate upgrade of terror prevention system: experts.


MOSCOW,-Russian experts on Monday urged an upgrade of the terror prevention system after two suicide bombings hit the southern city of Volgograd within 24 hours.

Russia tightened security nationwide after the attacks, which left at least 32 people dead and more than 70 others injured.

"Stopping a terrorist on the spot is not enough. A terrorist must be eliminated before leaving to carry out an attack," said Josef Linder, president of the International Counter-terror Training Association.

He believed that Volgograd was chosen by terrorists because the city is an important transportation hub and a symbol of Russian victory in World War II.

"Countering terror is a continuous work. It includes infiltration of the agents into the terrorists' infrastructure," he told Xinhua.

Linder said the terrorists might be trying to create an atmosphere of panic and to trigger anti-government sentiments.

"Monday's blast is literally a spit into the eyes of the authorities who just declared one day ago the 'yellow level' of emergency in the region," he said.

Meanwhile, federal authorities were certain that the twin bombings could have little impact on the upcoming Sochi Winter Olympics, over which some Western media were casting doubts.

"All necessary security measures have been taken. No additional security measures will be taken in Sochi. Everything necessary has been done," Russian Olympic Committee President Alexander Zhukov told reporters on Monday.

Igor Korotchenko, chief editor of the National Defense magazine, echoed Zhukov, saying: "Despite the attacks, the Sochi Olympics will be successful and security there will be guaranteed on the highest level, because Russia has been in contact with the world's leading special services over the Games' security."

The masterminds of the Volgograd bombings have failed to achieve what they had expected -- alienating people from the government, Korotchenko said.

Instead, people are uniting against extremists, he said.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
