Moscow's Tverskoi court has denied 3 of the first 24 claims filed by the victims of the terrorist attack in Dubrovka in the absence of direct orders to pay out compensation to the victims in the federal legislation, plaintiffs' attorney Igor Trunov told reporters.
His conclusion is based on the motivated court ruling he received on Thursday.
Victims of the terrorist attack in Dubrovka (last year's hostage taking in the theater center on October 23) demand that the Moscow administration pay them moral and material damages.
The court ruling says, "Analyzing the federal law "On combating terrorism" the court came to the conclusion that the law does not mention directly the need for the subject of the federation to pay damages to victims of terrorist attacks." Trunov added that on Thursday the lawyers of the Dubrovka terrorist attack victims appealed against the court's ruling.
The appeal will be considered by the Moscow City Court.
Other claims for moral and material damages against the Moscow administration filed by the victims of the terrorist attack are scheduled for February 10, 11, 13, 14, the victims' lawyers said.

More than 5.8 million people voted for Nicholas Maduro at the presidential election in Venezuela. This is more than a quarter of registered voters. Why did those people vote for the man, who, as Western media write, took Venezuela to the brink of collapse?
It has long been understood that the West has been trying to subject Russian borders to total control. We have not seen such activity even during the Cold War
