Russia has described as "blasphemous" a request by the European Union for an explanation to the bloody end to a mass hostage seizure at a school by Chechen gunmen.Remember, Russia is one of those nations who are not involved in Iraq. So why are they being attacked? Because terrorists DON'T CARE! All these statements by the Democrats saying that the Iraq war created more terrorists is stupid, they are everywhere! And they don't care at all about Iraq.
More than 320 people, almost half of them children were found dead after troops stormed a school in the southern Russian town of Beslan, where the separatists held more than 1,000 hostages for 53 hours.
In a statement in the name of the presidency of the 25-nation EU, Dutch Foreign Minister Bernard Bot said on Friday that all countries should work together to stop such tragedies.
"But we also would like to know from the Russian authorities how this tragedy could have happened," he added.
The Russian Foreign Ministry reacted with outrage on Saturday.
"Mr. Bot's elaborations are an absolute contrast with the wide international support and solidarity with Russia in these tragic days," the ministry statement said.
"Inappropriate statements by the Dutch minister look odious ... and blasphemous," it added. "We expect explanations from the Dutch side."
Interfax news agency later said that the Dutch ambassador had been summoned to the Foreign ministry over Bot's statement.
