Russian vow 'a threat to everyone'
Sep 8 2004
Russia's threat to target "terrorists anywhere" is a danger to Britain, Europe and the rest of the world, a top Chechen separatist based in the UK has warned.
Akhmed Zakayev said the vow meant Russia may try to assassinate Chechens wherever they are, regardless of international boundaries.
And he warned that sent out a "very disturbing signal to all civilised countries".
Mr Zakayev, an envoy for Chechen separatist leader Aslan Maskhadov, also rejected claims by Russia that he should face a renewed extradition attempt following the Beslan school massacre.
The separatist, who has been granted asylum, spoke out after Colonel General Yuri Baluyevsky, chief of the Russian General Staff. reasserted the country's right to strike at terrorists the world over.
Mr Zakayev said: "I think these are probably not empty threats, in fact they have already shown in practice that that is the way they do things.
"It is a very disturbing signal they are sending for all civilised countries.
"There are lots of Chechens all over the world and of course they talk freely about how dissatisfied they are with Putin's policies.
"To Putin, that makes them international terrorists. It is a warning to other European countries that Russia may come and carry out an assassination on your soil at any moment."
In February this year, two Russian agents assassinated Chechen rebel leader Zelimkhan Yandarbiyev in a car bomb attack in Qatar.
Same complaints made about Bush. Big deal.
If I were a Chechen terrorist living abroad I wouldn't get to close to any umbrellas.
And his point would be..................??
ALL Chenchens should be microchipped by what ever country they are hiding in....and the Russians given the necessary detection equipment to find them wherever they try to hide.. Russians will be like the Orkin guys of terrorist cockroaches... rock on Rooskies....rock on.... imo
Just as America's unilateralism was portrayed as a "threat" to the world. So now is Russia's.
It's clear these thugs seek to hide behind the UN's skirt and play up divisions between the free countries of the world.
Aha! Fighting fire with fire!
One can only hope they do!
Another brave muslim speaks.
He is afraid he will not get to rape some Russian school girls.
Payback's a bitch, Akhmed.

Hmmmmm so why isn't he in Chechnya if he is so brave?
"Akhmed Zakayev said the vow meant Russia may try to assassinate Chechens wherever they are, regardless of international boundaries."
Can I vote for Putin?
I hope they ARE worried!
the Russians don't have the same PC hang-ups the rest of us have....
To be more accurate, this should say "Russia's threat to target "terrorists anywhere" is a danger to Islamic terrorists in Britain, Europe and the rest of the world". Islam is like a disease upon the earth, and it should be reduced to controllable levels.
The Russian mafia makes the Italians look like grade-school bullies.
We should ask Russia to join our international coalition against terrorism and work together in a corrdinated manner to eliminate these vermin from the gene pool.
And what's the downside of this?
