Head Ingushetia, Yunus-Bek Yevkurov overturned the ban in the country on the issue of relatives of the corpses of militants. According Evkurova so by the relatives will be less reason for revenge. Additionally the republic's authorities have promised to provide assistance to families whose babies were members of an illegal armed group. "They are guilty, yes, but more guilty society — which allowed him to get in this environment," — declared Evkurov. He promised to release the home of surrendering militants, even if there is a possibility that they will return to the underground life: "Wants, will come again, and finally give up."
Statements of Ingushetia were a reaction to the "signal" from President Medvedev, who said that the principle of "we're just going to destroy the terrorists and destroy the more, the better," should "remain in the past."
About his own decision to abandon the practice of not issuing bodies of those killed during anti-terrorist operations militants to their relatives head Ingushetia, Yunus-Bek Evkurov At yesterday's meeting with the youth camp "Mashuk-2011" in Pyatigorsk. "I personally rebuked not give the dead bodies of bandits. Give out, even buried. This is made in order not to embitter the remaining "- said Evkurov.
The practice of not relatives of those killed in battle militants in issuing their corpses acts in Russia in accordance with the provisions of the law "On the funeral business." In 2007, the Constitutional Court has recognized these rules do not conflict with the Constitution. Russian authorities for a long time prior to the law introduced the practice of not issuing bodies of dead militants, especially the warlords and their relatives for burial. The body of Aslan Maskhadov, who was killed on March 8, 2005, did not give to bury their relatives, although requested by international human rights organizations. With the request to issue a year later murdered body of Shamil Basayev in general no one spoke, "Kommersant". Evkurov sure that the federal government will go to meet him, although his initiative to the militants and contrary to the law.
Evkurova statement was a reaction to the speech of President Medvedev at a meeting of the Council on the development of civilian society and human rights proposed not to destroy insurgents and re-educate. Medvedev said that the principle of "we're just going to destroy the terrorists and destroy the more the better" should stay in the past, because "it is necessary not only to destroy those who sow terror, and try to educate them, to return them," Medvedev quotes "Open Democracy"
Head Russia and commented on the statement about the "police terror" in the Caucasian republics. Soldiers of the militants, according to the views of Medvedev, "people with his shortcomings," but the attitude to them as "criminals who are engaged only in that hinder citizens of the Russian Federation to live", is threatened by the entire law enforcement system. The President noted that the forgiveness of terrorists — is "a matter of choice," the "question of tact and desire to control or another member of the Federation."
Yunus-bek Evkurov the first to respond to the wishes of the head of state. And not only inside the Republic suspended the federal law, and promised to help the families of the real fighters, since, according to the head of the republic, is that their sons have gone into an illegal armed group itself guilty of Russian society. "And plus, to help a family where the child died. Since we now have to realize: they are guilty, yes, but more guilty of the society — which allowed him to get in this environment, "- quoted Evkurova" Caucasian Knot ".
Head Ingushetia, said that if a man came voluntarily, "he questioned, we do not detain him, we let him go home. Questioned — go home. Even if he is a murderer. He himself came from. Could not come, and could not come. If they want, will come again, and finally give up. "
