An Impossible Peace in Chechnya?



An explosion yesterday ripped through the international arrivals hall at Moscow’s busiest airport, Domodedova. The attack killed at least 35 people and wounding about 130. Many are in critical condition.

Witnesses claimed a suicide bomber shouted “I’ll kill you all!” before detonating the explosives. The man and a woman accomplice detonated the bomb. Three others are reportedly connected to attack.


Authorities are linking the incident to Chechen insurgents who have instigated similar attacks in Russia in the past.

“God, bring peace between Russia and Chechnya.  Bring justice. Give patience and grace to those who need to forgive. Create a new vision for this relationship, and a win/win for both sides. This seems impossible in human terms, but you do the impossible. We pray for a miraculous peace. Soon. Now. Complete! In Jesus’ name…”

    Amen to your prayer! Let us pray for the victims and pray that people on both sides renounce revenge killings and violence.
