Nationalists take responsibility for blowing up "Neva-Express" train

A spokesman of the Movement Against Illegal Migration (MAIM) has published in his blog a statement on behalf of the nationalist grouping named "Combat 18", in which the latter takes responsibility for blowing up the "Neva-Express" train.

However, so far, the investigation has no confirmations about nationalists' involvement in the incident.

"We, the combat independent grouping 'Combat 18', hereby take responsibility for blowing up the 'Neva-Express'. Further more! The time has come. We state that the war will touch on every philistine; this war has no neutrals and no innocent victims; there are just our supporters and our enemies," the statement says.

It is not clear so far, whether the statement was really made by the "Combat 18". But it is known that "Combat 18" is a really existing right-wing radical grouping. Comments from the members of this organization were taken, in particular, by correspondents of the "Russian Newsweek", the "Gazeta.Ru" writes.

Meanwhile, as the "Interfax" reports, so far, the investigatory bodies have no data of involvement of any extremist organization in the accident of the "Neva-Express" train.
