peter, Putin has gone to many terrorist sites, if you want more comment from the man, maybe you should read Russian media instead of short news stories you get here? Show he is human? You mean prove your cold-war view wrong?
Stalin? Putin who builds churches, hero is 'stalin'? The man who turned church into a swimming pool? As usual seedy is a moron.
What is wrong with Putin? Hiis only reported comment was to strengthen security, correct and sensible yes but where is his human side? He is leader of the Russian people yet has voiced no concern for the families of the bereaved, has not traveled to the area to meet and express his condolences. Not much in the way of leadership there, come on man show some humanity to you people, show then you care and are concerned, show you are human after all, even macho men can cry.
