On the anniversary of the Dubrovka terrorist act, Russian President Vladimir Putin urges to combat terrorism.
At the ceremony of opening the Russian Kant air base, the President reminded all those present that a year had passed since the tragic events in Moscow when more than 800 spectators of the Nord-Ost musical in Dubrovka theatre centre became hostages of terrorists.
"This is a heavy wound which will remain in our hearts for long," Putin said.
"We know well that if we give terrorists the opportunity of raising their head in one place, they will immediately raise it in another one," stressed the Russian president.
