The main version of the terrorist act committed in administrative buildings in Znamenskoye, Chechnya, is that it was ordered by separatist leader Aslan Maskhadov, reported Ilya Shabalkin, an official spokesman for the Regional Operational Headquarters for co-ordinating the counter-terrorist operation in the North Caucasus.
