RIA Novosti

MOSCOW, March 23 (RIA Novosti) - The terrorist attack, in which the car of a Russian diplomat in Stockholm was blown up, is linked by Moscow with the spreading of views of Chechen terrorists the Swedish media give floor to, a Russian diplomat told RIA Novosti on Wednesday.

As is known, Swedish news agency TT published on March 21 this year an exclusive interview with Shamil Basayev, a leader of Chechen terrorists.

"There is a direct link between the Swedish news agency giving floor to terrorists and the latter's deeds, with the terrorists being, in fact, encouraged to use unpunished violence in the face of the Swedish authorities' inactivity," the diplomat said.
