“It was an act of terrorism.” Evgeny Royzman believes terrorists set off explosion in Magnitogorsk
Former mayor of Yekaterinburg sustains the conspiratorial theory of the tragedy.
Former mayor of Yekaterinburg Evgeny Royzman believes the cause of the apartment building’s collapse in Magnitogorsk was an act of terrorism - not a domestic gas explosion.
“As far as I can see now, they’re trying to figure out what caused the explosion and how it happened, at all. I assume those who are working over there now don’t have any doubts. - Royzman says in his interview with Echo of Moscow radio station. - There are many people gathered there. I just know that the whole Investigative Committee arrived at the scene from Yekaterinburg, including the drivers and everyone being on duty and working over there. In other words, that was not an incident caused by a domestic gas explosion, put it bluntly. This is another story… I believe that was an act of terrorism.”
The explosion of the apartment building in Magnitogorsk occurred in the morning, on December 31. According to the official line, it was caused by the domestic gas explosion. 39 persons died following the incident. 6 were rescued from the rubble - including a 6-month-old child. At the present time, he is being treated in Moscow.
Mass protest rallies have been taking place in Moscow on a regular basis since the beginning of this summer. People are protesting for lots of different reasons. However, the reaction of the law enforcement authorities is always the same: repression. What is the reason behind the brutality shown during the dispersion of mass rallies? A conscious intimidation policy or incompetence of law enforcement functionaries escalating the violence and unable to imagine the potential consequences of this?
