After Subway Bombings, Russia's Next Move

Tuesday, March 30, 2010

It's been over 24 hours since the terrorist attack in Moscow, where two female suicide bombers targeted subways, killing almost 40 people.

Russian security forces say Chechnya or a neighboring region in the Caucasus regions are likely behind the bombings, and Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has vowed to destroy those responsible. Could this be the end of President Dmitry Medvedev's liberalizing of the Russian government and the return of Putin's iron fist? We pose that question to Heather Conley, director of the Europe Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
