@Peter_Bridgman Almost funny. A BBC expert on Chechnya says the suspect is a zealous Muslim. The interviewer immediately switches to the topic of Chechen politics.
@rineer07 Chechens are NOT Russians ... This is a separatist republic in which Sunni followers live!
@fleetstreetfox And a fake Boston terrorist account has already appeared. Stupid people, I wash my hands.
@RileyRebel129 Anyone who asks why Chechen terrorists organize a terrorist attack against the Americans clearly does not know how Russians deal with terrorists ...
@iboudreau So, that is, the Chechen rebels staged a terrorist attack on the Boston Marathon, so ... Okay, you have to start drinking in the afternoon, otherwise you will not understand.
@mikeyfranklin My wife is a school teacher and she is proud that she is American. And she comes from the USSR. Just try to attach to its origin - I hope you ass.
@BBCDanielS Um! If you are a Chechen from Kyrgyzstan, you did not live long in Dagestan, and then moved to America, where you lived more than 10 years, the connection with Chechnya is rather conditional.
@mattyglesias If all of this is part of an international conspiracy to secure Chechnya’s independence, it’s a little hard to understand what its authors are hoping for.
@ yaffaesque Suspect from Boston Johar Tsarnaev 19 years - this means that he was born in 1994 year, when the First Chechen War began. A whole generation knows nothing but conflicts.
@OliverBullough It seems that Chechens have never organized terrorist attacks against non-Russian targets outside of Russia (except for the terrorist attacks in Turkey on 1990).
@RagHolmas @OliverBullough Generally, a Chechen tried to blow up the Jørgensen hotel in Copenhagen in 2010, and was convicted of attempted terrorist attack.
@MiriamElder A spokesman for Ramzan Kadyrov, the Chechen leader, turned off his phone at an untimely time.
@asteris It's time to come down from heaven to earth: a guy with a gun just single-handedly led to the collapse of a huge city in the US, two days later after the Congress, ruled by the National Association of Gun Owners, hacked an already weak weapon control bill
@hsofia I am very sorry for Boston, we are all terribly worried about you, and for Muslims from Chechnya, who, by the way, cook excellent food.
@Soma_G Dear Indians on Twitter, we miraculously managed to avoid the label of a nation of terrorists. Let's refrain from stupid jokes about Chechens?
@baratunde The suspects are Chechens. That is white and muslims? And what will Fox News do with this fact ?!
@Whisky_Jean I remember, not so long ago Chechen "rebels" were honored as freedom fighters. Now imagine, they are called fundamentalists and terrorists.
@MarkAdomanis If your first wish, when you learned that the terrorists are Chechens, is to blame Russia for everything, look first in the mirror.

The explosions in Boston were the work of Chechens? .. mmm ... again a headache.
お ば け う さ ぎ @pantasmacoello
And then the Chechens turned out to be criminals. So what? Will America again confront Russia? Will the people that they pointed to suffer? Will there be an invasion of Russian Chechnya?
日本国 皇帝 @nihon_koutei
Why precisely Chechens? After all, Russia will not have them, with which they already have strained relations, to ask for something ...
Mdaa ... It's hard to say something. But after all, the enemy of Chechnya is Russia, not America. It is clear, if there are connections with foreign countries, and now this is some kind of home-grown terrorist ... What is happening at all?
菜 雪 @nasetsu
What is the point of Chechens blowing up bombs in America? .. And, by the way, where did the talk about the North Korean trace go?
Alkaida was initially sponsored by America as a militant group, and then when the Americans stopped supporting, she responded with a terrorist strike. Maybe this time we are dealing with a similar case?
It is likely that America supported the Islamic community in Chechnya, and when it was left to the mercy of fate, the sight of the terrorists shifted from Russia to America itself. Something tells me that it really was.
ら か ・ マ ヤ ＠KL @KK_KL_PP
But after all, they are from the neighboring republic, what is the need to specifically specify their Chechen origin? The only thing that comes to mind is to mislead the people.
If you recall the conflicts in Chechnya, then it was all in Russia, and if the brothers from Chechnya are guilty of the Boston bombings, then is it really Russia and America to unite in the fight against terrorists?
America already does not have time with Iran and North Korea.
I accidentally saw a shoot in which a Chechen soldier cuts with a knife the throat of a living Russian soldier. Such things really happen all over the world, many people slaughter cows and pigs in exactly the same way. I could never understand such cruelty and from childhood I have not eaten animal meat. For more than fifty years.
寺 尾 智 史 Satoshi TERAO @SATERAO
And the Boston brothers along the way come from Kyrgyzstan, it is from Chechnya as from Moscow to London. And when I hear American big news agencies report that “it comes from a region not far from Chechnya,” I once again marvel at the deepest knowledge of all Americans, including journalists, in geography. All for educational courses on retraining. Although the Japanese media that repeat this nonsense is no better.
French-speaking Twitter users:
@Souuf Wait, do you have oil in Chechnya too?
@Kfb1701 Take the trouble, illiterate! The word you are trying to write is written as Chechnya. And better shut up ...
@Ohundniquitweet Well, considering that Chechnya is a Muslim region, they are probably Islamists, this explains the attack.
@Tokko_Tai Chuyu, the attitude of the American administration towards Russian policy towards Chechnya will change a little.
@SiMo_HaMM Chechnya. I doubt that Americans are aware of the existence of this African country bordering Nepal.
@Alxjdn Currently, 98% of those who write about Chechnya would not be able to find it on the map.
@Antaeus79 Straight I can see Putin calling Obama: “I told you so”

Sami Yasin Çolak @ yasin_colak: Two Chechens locked up Boston residents in their homes. Just two people.
TerbiyesizHerif @ TerbiyesizHerif: They say the Boston terrorists are Chechens! All news coming from the USA is either misinformation or outright lies! Chechens are an excuse, democracy is fantastic!
Fatih Tezcan @ fatihtezcan: I guess the Boston terrorist attack was planned by the United States. In the ranting of the United States will never believe. I do not get tired to greet our Chechen brothers.
Fatih Tezcan @ fatihtezcan: AP: The performers of the explosions in Boston are two Chechens. NBC: One of the Chechens arrived from Turkey. They almost said that he was from Kasimpasi ...
cüneyt özdemir @ cuneytozdemir: Alas, the Boston terrorists turned out to be Chechens ... So, the roots of this question somehow reach Turkey ...
Irem Koker @ ikoker: According to the murdered suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, having fled the Chechen war to Kazakhstan in the 1990s, he subsequently moved to the United States as a refugee.
tolga b. @ toutologue: The persecuted terrorist is a Chechen who was born in Kyrgyzstan. The ground is ready for the establishment of an al-Qaida trail or at least a Taliban.
İlker YİĞİT @ ilkoFb: If I were born again, I would like to be a Chechen ...

The end of the empty speeches, ololo!
Chechens were. America has a snake on its chest
In the morning they were Indians, now they are from Russia. Waiting for the evening and put on Syria.
In this case, there are all signs of a CIA action.
By chance, did not the Americans so harshly criticize the uncompromising approach of the Russians to the Chechen murderers?
žiji a sázím on-line
I walked away for a moment. Well what is it? Who leads? What is the score? How many dead are on the side of good / America / Israel / CNN, and how many are on the side of evil / Muslims / Iran / Al-Jazeera? Bets made?
The September 11 attack - in response, an attack on Al-Qaida, an attack in Boston - in response, Chechnya. Well, we have something to wait for, because Chechnya is a former republic of the Soviet Union .... Or did the United States and Russia plan all this to seize Chechnya? I'm not surprised at anything
German readers comments
Where were all these special news releases and tickers in real time when a couple of dozen people were killed and injured a couple of days ago in Mogadishu during a bomb blast? Probably, the lives of American citizens are valued more expensive.
The suspects are, in all likelihood, two brothers from Chechnya. Thus, the Islamist background becomes more likely.
Should we consider nowhere to provide more shelter to all these people, especially from war zones? It may be inhumane, but is it humane to allow potential terrorists into the country, who may have many people's lives on their conscience? Or those people who were mutilated, probably dozens of people, as happened in Boston? The state accepts these people under pressure from humanitarian organizations and for reasons of "humanity", and as a token of gratitude, they kill people in the name of their faith ...
It seems that the US authorities are more efficient than the German police, the Federal Criminal Police Office, the Constitution Conservancy, and so on. All of them for 10 years could not catch the killers of the "National Socialist Underground" (NSU), despite the availability of accurate information.
Chechen gangs are clearly Islamic. A large number of Chechens who fought on the side of the Taliban were killed or captured in Pakistan and Afghanistan. The United States has never taken action directly against the Chechens, so the Chechen terrorist attack in the United States can, in fact, be explained only from the standpoint of Islam. But we must first wait until the facts about the intruders are known. I already in advance rejoice in the emergence of numerous conspiracy theories that will explain why the CIA / Mossad / Merkel are behind the “supposedly Chechen” terrorist attack in the United States.
This is how it is done! Two days later, the two suspects were not only identified, but also detained. The fact that one of them died during this action is regrettable. I would love to see him in court. In contrast, Germany has long been unable to cope with their problems. There, the protection of criminals is above the protection of victims. Respect the United States!
It remains to hope that these "suspects" will ultimately prove to be "correct."
I have already ceased to understand anything. First, it was about a Saudi who was arrested, and then expelled for reasons of national security. First there were blacks, then Russians and someone else from the former USSR. There are other absurdities. I hope that in the coming days everything will become clearer.
It turns out that not all Chechens ended up in Syria, and a couple of their representatives lost their course and got into the United States.
Respect! Not only for the murder, but also for the rapid detection of suspects.

The Huffington Post
Boston received two Chechens ... let's hope that others will direct their energy to peaceful purposes ... My condolences to the victims of the terrorist attack.
"We will pursue terrorists everywhere ... we will soak them in the toilet"
Vladimir Putin, September 1999
So they are Russian. Chechnya and the surrounding regions are Russia. Why talk about proximity to Chechnya? If a Greek commits an act of terrorism in France, they will not say that they come from a region close to the Peloponnese, they will say that the Greek did it - right? Why all these vile insinuations?
New fashion: if you can’t solve your national problems, export them. Or has it always been and is it just a boomerang effect? Who then first began?
Chechens are terrorists of the religion of the world.
These two brothers are Chechens, well, yes, another blow to the "religion of love."
"One suspect was killed." Had it happened in France, these thugs would have already burned two dozen cars and threw stones at the police station - and all this with the support of our associations!
I can not understand! How can such a sweet, peaceful country that cares for poor countries without robbing them have so many enemies? Just the head does not fit!
Le Renard 3
Because of the atirus ideology, we take women and insurgents Chechens, feed them, provide them with housing and keep them on our taxes. And in return we get death. Excellent result!
Comments from Spanish readers
That's right said !! This damn Islamists - evil, which must be wiped off the face of the Earth. The only thing they can do is sow death, terrorism, wild fanaticism, ignorance, etc.
I wonder why there should be mosques in Europe.
That's the way to fight terrorism. To block everything so that the fly does not fly. Check everything centimeter by centimeter, and when terrorists are discovered, if they do not give up and open fire, they are destroyed. Why keep them behind bars 30 years at public expense? No, they must be destroyed! Did they leave the chances of life to those who were killed? This is the way to deal with all the terrorists in the world. I remember how the Baader-Meinhof gang was destroyed in Germany. Brilliant operation!
And why never explode bombs in mosques of European cities? Why?
What nonsense! You think that all bad things happen because of the USA. It is the United States who invented fascism, communism, Islam, etc. And then begin the war, in which they are sent their guys to die for these ideologies. Clearly, everything can be explained by the fact that the Jews control the United States. Together with weapons manufacturers, they need constant wars to enrich themselves. And the American people are solid fools who believe everything they are told and are ready to waste their resources and ruin their lives. Rave! It seems that you do not know anything about the United States, but you hate this country very much. Do you have an inferiority complex? Are you a loser?
Many here believe that if you are anti-American, then you are Muslims. Let us remember who were the friends of the United States in Afghanistan in the 80s? Who was removed and who was put in power in Iraq and Libya? Who is being supported in Syria? About Chechnya, I really keep quiet.
To tell the truth, I just can’t understand how there are still people who don’t understand (or don’t care for them, for whatever reason) the danger that this religion represents. Tolerance - no! I am writing from an Islamic republic where I have been living (unfortunately for myself) for almost five years now. I know what I'm saying because I know them well. They have no place in any of the civilized countries. If they want to live in the Middle Ages, let them roll to their home with their fellow tribesmen. We absolutely do not need them! None of them!

La nación (Argentina)
Chechens who flee from Grozny, provide shelter and save them from being destroyed by the Russians, and they respond with terrorist acts to the country that received them and gave them freedom - incredible!
Imagine how much money was saved for the country by a policeman who fired a shot? A bullet costs no more than 20 cents, but how much does a lawsuit cost and 30 years of prison content?
What are the cunning, found a scapegoat and sewn it.
El Espectador (Colombia)
Americans, as always, if the terrorists are either Russians or Muslims
Well done! It is also necessary in Colombia to deal with terrorists, and not to appoint them as mayors!
Americans love to make a show! let them call for James Bond ...
Comments of Polish readers
Well, please, as recently as a couple of months ago, Gazeta Wyborcza went through a whole series of reports about poor Chechens who ILLEGALLY came to Poland and were kept in a refugee camp. Everyone shouted that they needed to be released. A couple of weeks ago, Poles from the same town were accused of not wanting to see a Chechen camp in their neighborhood. And here you are: a demonstration that Chechens can arrange, if you give them freedom. In Russia, the Chechen mafia is considered to be the most dangerous and merciless for no reason.
Why Chechens staged a terrorist attack in the States? They could not do more harm to Chechnya and help settle in Russian. I see this as a second bottom. Some more similar actions and people will start burning mosques with the faithful.
It's hard to believe. What could Chechen independence fighters have against the USA? What did they want to achieve in this way? Chechen traitors who cooperate with Russia, or Chechen mercenaries who are ready to order, for money, do anything, to those who pay them (as befits mercenaries) is another matter. These could be Chechen Muslim fanatics. Or maybe they are innocent people who have been involved in this matter: they can no longer object to the murdered ones, because, as the rule of the special services of the whole world says, “no one is better than a corpse”. It cannot be ruled out that the accusation of Chechens is a friendly service of Barak Vladimir.
Now the Russians will have all the cards in their hands, and they will be able to swing them everywhere, although they themselves are exactly the same bandits. But at the same time I was once again struck by an American truly cosmic stupidity. Russian and Chechen mafiosi, Islamists of all stripes calmly receive visas and residence permits, and completely harmless people of other nationalities put insurmountable obstacles ...
“Chechens are our brothers,” our right-wing politicians are praising them with might and main, accept with open arms and are called liberators, because they attack the Russians. It is very curious how they will behave now, after the terrorist attack in America. What hypocrisy and duplicity!
Comments from Brazil readers
Well, where are these human rights defenders from the United States? When the dude was arrested, he was not injured, and the corpse was brought to the hospital? Is there really no one responsible for this murder?
I had a dream to live in the USA, because in Brazil life is disgusting. But with such chances of becoming a victim of a terrorist, it is better to stay here.
I agree with Danilo ... Quite a lot of people died here in Brazil, becoming victims of bandits who are defended by human rights defenders, both local and from the United States. And they defended this terrorist. But better here than there.
Who allowed the US to kill this guy? Where are international human rights organizations? Why not protect him? Here in Brazil there are no criminals, there is only a certain number of poor fellows who are victims of the political system, because of which they kill and rob without any measures!
Dudes I know this suspect !!!! He was in my school, he is Brazilian !!! I'm in SHOCK, anyone. give the US police phone number !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Holy Mother of God. I read all this ignorant nonsense here ... Dudes talk about human rights. Bu-ga-ga.Tut and thrown bombs there, and they, the poor, need human rights ... ha ha. Why would these common people not go there, to meet with the families of those who died or were injured due to an explosion? In the name of the love of God .... Is it not a shift of values?
And here there are commentators who did not even bother to read the news, but they already make a hunchbacked one in full. Pipets.
