Terrorist who blew himself up in Grozny originates from difficult family

Rustam Mukhadiev, a suicide bomber who committed a self-killing act in the evening on July 26 at the national theatre-and-concert hall in the centre of Chechen capital, was brought up by a difficult family: his parents were divorced.

A source from power agencies of the Chechen Republic said: "Bandit Rustam Mukhadiev, who committed on July 26 an act of terror at the theatrical-and-concert hall in Grozny, grew up in an incomplete family. His parents divorced when he was small, and his grandmother was rearing him."

"Mukhadiev had incomplete secondary education - he finished nine forms of a secondary school and bookkeeper's training courses. On September 1, 2007, he left his house, saying that he was going to the sea with his friends. Initially, he was a member of Hussein Gakaev's gang, operating in the Vedeno District, and then he joined the group of Usman Muntsigov, also known as 'Shatral'. His mother and other relatives failed to react timely and learnt that he was in the IAF much later from law enforcers. Actually, the irresponsibility of his parents and other close relatives became the reason of the tragedy on July 26, when six persons were lost and several more wounded for Mukhadiev's guilt," the source has emphasized.

In the opinion of the contact of the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent, most of the young men now in illegal armed formations, have also have grown up in problem, needy and incomplete families. "It's much easier to recruit into militants and fool with false ideas a young man, who is poorly educated and suffering from some kind of inferiority complex. Bandits know it quite well and are especially hard in 'treating' such youngsters," the militia officer said.

Meanwhile, yesterday, President of the Chechen Republic Ramzan Kadyrov held a meeting with Ruslan Alkhanov, Minister of Internal Affairs, and his deputy Apti Alaudinov. Mr Kadyrov demanded, in the shortest possible time, to completely liquidate the group of militants, where Rustam Mukhadiev was a member.

At the same time, Ramzan Kadyrov has reiterated his statement that militants' relatives should bear responsibility for their actions. "They have their relatives, they have their tape (kin), they have their tukkhum (tribal union), and they all should respond for their member. Let them liquidate their dogs by themselves, or give them to us!" he has stated.

In the opinion of one of local legal experts, this another Kadyrov's statement about application of the principle of collective responsibility in relation to relatives of IAF members can provoke another wave of violence over the republic.
