    RUSSIA TO FIND OUT WHICH FORMER SOVIET
    REPUBLICS DELIVERED ROCKETS TO CHECHEN
    TERRORISTS

    MOSCOW,
    November 20, 2002.
    from RIA Novosti
    correspondent Olga Semyonova/
    --The
    Russian side has called on all the former Soviet republics to inspect
    anti-missile systems at their disposal, so that they could be compared
    with those confiscated from Chechen terrorists. In other words,
    Moscow is trying to find out from which ex-soviet republics rockets
    were delivered to Chechen terrorists.

    "The Foreign Ministry sent appropriate diplomatic notes to all the
    former USSR republics, first of all the Baltic states," Russian Defence
    Minister Sergei Ivanov announced opening a session of the
    Council of the CIS Countries' Defence Ministers on Wednesday. In
    particular, the question is about Igla portable anti-missile rockets
    (PZRK), the minister specified.

    In the course of an anti-terrorist operation in Chechnya several dozens
    of the Igla PZRK, bearing serial numbers, were confiscated from
    terrorists, Ivanov recalled. Stressing that "such dangerous weapons
    must not fall into the hands of terrorists" the Russian minister
    announced his intention to clear up the way the terrorists had got
    hold of the Iglas by the serial numbers.

    According to him, this will contribute to joint efforts on fighting
    terrorism and preventing new supplies of dangerous weapons to
    terrorists in future. In this connection Ivanov suggested
    discussing the issue of fighting terrorism apart from the official
    agenda.

    I doubt it would be the Baltics.

    Turkministan, Khazahstan, or any of the "Stans" is probably all suspects.

    Well, to our friends at Kremlin HQ, all former "Soviet republics" are suspects. And what better time to suspect the "suspicious" Baltics than during the NATO party?

    The "Baltic female snipers", you'll remember, rose to prominence in Kremlin HQ's imagination during the first Chechnya War...

    Give it a rest, you along with that russophobe, Leopoldo. Everytime the butterfly flaps its wings in Brazil you two think it came from Russia to destroy your precious baltics. Russia doesn't give a shit about your baltics. They say they do but they dont. Right now they want to win against the terrorists in Chechnya.

    For two bright people you two sure are clueless when it comes to reading between the lines and what is said in public versus what is meant.

    Did you have a point, state so, but don't hide behind silly mysterys.
