Putin: A new threat - terrorism - has been added to the ideas of fascism still surviving in the world

A new threat - terrorism - has been added to the ideas of fascism still lingering in the world, said Vladimir Putin.

"Today we have no right to shut our eyes to the fact that both the Nazi swastika and the ideas of fascism are still roaming the world. And that the no less terrible evil - terrorism - has been added to them," the Russian president said in his address at a Victory Day parade in Red Square in Moscow.

"It (terrorism) also brings death and destruction. It is the task of the entire world community to give terrorists a worthy rebuff and rid the world of that scourge," Putin emphasised.

He warned against forgetting the lessons of history. "We know how fascism was born and that a final blow to Nazism could be dealt only by the world combining its efforts," Putin said.

An explosion has detonated in the Dynamo stadium in the Chechen capital of Grozny, killing some and wounding others, a RIA Novosti correspondent reports from the scene.

The blast occurred at 10:35 a.m. in the central grandstands of the stadium, where a concert on the occasion of Victory Day was being held.

As reported by the RIA Novosti correspondent, many people had come to the stadium today - all the stands were filled.

The concert began after the solemn part of the festival, devoted to the 59th anniversary of victory in the Great Patriotic War against German Nazism (1941-45). As the RIA Novosti correspondent reports, the ceremonial part consisted of a marchpast by several columns of staff members of the Chechen Interior Ministry and an address by the president of the republic, Akhmad Kadyrov.

"Victory Day is a unifying holiday both for all peoples of Russia and for the peoples of the former Union republics," Kadyrov said in his address.

He also wished good health to veterans and peaceful life to all inhabitants of Chechnya.

According to some information, the explosion in Grozny left wounded Colonel-General Valery Baranov, commander of the joint grouping of forces in the North Caucasus. This information was provided to RIA Novosti by a source in the press-service of the Chechen president.
