Last week has become a sad page for the world’s common fight against terrorism. First of all, on Monday a terror attack, which claimed 14 lives, was carried out in the St. Petersburg metro. Unfortunately, instead of concentration on looking for effective ways for combating terrorists the western media was actively disseminating statements by some Russian opposition and western political figures, who tried to link this Monday tragedy with recent anti-corruption protests, and was discussing how Putin could benefit from the situation. It seems that previously there existed, at least, an understanding that terrorism is a common global threat, whereas now it has been abandoned and the real international cooperation in the fight against terrorists has been replaced by political games and conspiracy theories.
