Russian Hyrdo Plant Closed After Two Die in Terrorist Attack

July 21, 2010

Russia (ChattahBox) – A hydro plant in the North Caucasus has been shut down after a group of people stormed in, killing two guards, assaulting to workers, and setting off four out of five bombs.

The fifth bomb placed within the plant was set, but security officials were able to detonate it before any injury resulted.

According to Bloomberg, the plant was a part of the OAO RusHydro chain, the largest hydro energy company in Russia, located in Baksanskaya. The plant will be shut down for six weeks.

Federal Security Service agents are currently working under the direction of Prime Minister Vladimir Putin’s deputy, Igor Sechin, in order to ascertain the full extent of the terrorist attack, the group responsible, and any possible future plans.

Chances are, it was a random act of sabotage from Islamic insurgents, which are common in the region. The North Caucasus has been struggling under separatists bent on furthering corruption in the area, and breaking away from the main of the Russia government.

New laws have recently been implemented in a hope of stemming off some of the higher reaching corruption in the area, and reducing violence. However, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has admitted that steps taken over the years to secure the corrupted forces within the nation as a whole have been unsuccessful.
