Have there been terrorist attacks in Russia?

Terrorism has a lengthy history in Russia, dating back to the time of the Russian Empire. Significant terrorist activity has occurred in Russia since the end of the twentieth century, most notably the Budyonnovsk hospital hostage crisis, the 1999 apartment bombings, the Moscow theater hostage crisis, and the Beslan school siege. There have also been several small-scale incidents involving violent protests or riots caused by terrorists.

What is terrorism? Terrorism is defined as the use of violence in order to achieve political goals through fear. This can be done through threats or acts of violence for their own sake, such as suicide bombers who die along with others if they are able to carry out their plan, or survivors who may be traumatized by the experience. Terrorism can also take the form of provocative actions that lead to violence being used against the perpetrator, such as starting a fire at a military facility or occupying buildings during protests. Acts of terrorism have been committed throughout history in order to advance political beliefs, usually in relation to freedom but also including other ideas such as white supremacy or religious extremism.

How has Russia dealt with terrorism? Since the end of the Soviet Union, Russia has experienced several high-profile terrorist attacks that have killed hundreds of people. In addition, many smaller-scale incidents have occurred over the years that have left dozens if not hundreds of people dead. The government has taken measures against terrorism that include criminalizing certain activities related to it and holding trials for those suspected of committing crimes connected to terrorism.

TSAR ALEXANDER II: Tsar Liberator and the Rise of Russian Terrorism TSAR ALEXANDER II: Tsar Liberator and the Rise of Russian Terrorism

Alexander II was born on January 21, 1829, in St. Petersburg, Russia, to an aristocratic family. He was educated at home by private tutors and then attended the Bestuzhev Courses for Young Noblemen and Officers of State Police from 1840 to 1847. In 1848, he joined the Imperial Army as a cavalry officer. During the Polish uprising, he was wounded at Grunwald and became ill with typhus. After recovering, he was appointed governor of Vitebsk and then of Kovno in 1856. There, he showed himself to be a capable administrator who improved the military and economic conditions there. In 1861, Alexander was elected tsar after his uncle, Nicholas I, died without heirs. He continued to build up the army and improve government institutions while also trying to modernize Russia into an industrial country.

In the aftermath of the assassination of Alexander III in 1881, terrorist acts against officials responsible for the crime began to appear. The most notorious of these men was Andrei Zhelnov, who organized several attacks against those believed to be involved.

What was attacked in Moscow in March 2010?

MOSCOW, March 29, 2010 (ENS) – According to Russian emergency officials, twin bomb blasts purportedly detonated by female terrorists blasted through Moscow's metro system this morning, killing at least 38 people. Another 140 people were injured.

The first blast occurred around 6:50 a.m. local time (0350 GMT) on the metro's Kolomensky line between Kropotkinskaya and Maloyaroslavets stations. The second explosion took place about 10 minutes later on the Lyubyanka line between Lubyanskaya and Partizanskaya stations.

Russian emergency services say both blasts were caused by explosive devices placed in plastic bags left on the trains. Investigators believe that the women involved are members of a new radical Islamist group called "Eternal Memory."

Metro staff quickly evacuated passengers from the affected cars before detonating the bombs, which had electric switches attached to them. Officials say this indicates that the attackers did not intend to cause mass casualties. However, the death toll may rise as more bodies are recovered from the debris.

Investigators have found some evidence that points toward Kurdish separatists as being responsible for the attacks, however, no one has been arrested yet in connection with the bombings.

What is the Russian cyber attack?

Russia's cyberwarfare comprises denial-of-service assaults, hacking attacks, misinformation and propaganda distribution, involvement of state-sponsored teams in political blogging, internet surveillance using SORM technology, cyber-dissident persecution, and other active measures. The term "cyberattack" is often used by the media to describe incidents involving Russia that result in damage or loss of data, but which do not cause physical destruction. Such attacks may involve the use of malware (i.e., software designed to infiltrate computers without their knowledge) or social engineering techniques.

The first public evidence of a Russian cyberattack occurred on March 4, 2014, when the website of Ukraine's largest news outlet, Kyiv Post, was hacked, causing hundreds of articles to be deleted. On July 17, 2014, the website of the German government was hacked, causing NATO reports to be published online. On August 1, 2014, the website of the International Institute of Information Technology (IIIT) in India was hacked, causing its database containing personal information of over 70,000 people to be leaked. On September 16, 2014, the website of the United Nations Office for Drug Control and Crime Prevention (UNODC) was hacked, causing all of its websites to go offline for several hours. On October 21, 2014, the website of the French National Assembly was hacked, causing thousands of documents to be leaked.
