    In fact, the Kremlin may take advantage of the Boston tragedy's connection to the hostile Caucasus republic by casting the Monday attack as an example of the global terrorism threat that should draw the major powers together in a campaign to eradicate Islamic extremism, rights activist Lev Ponomarev said.

    “Most likely, [Russian President Vladimir] Putin will argue that Russia and the United States should pay more attention to protecting lives in the ongoing war against terror instead of constantly complaining about such trifles, in his view, as human rights violations,” said Ponomarev, chairman of the For Human Rights organization.

    "Putin has more than once said that there are no 'theirs' and 'ours' among terrorists,” spokesman Dmitry Peskov told Russia-24, a television news channel. “They mustn’t be flirted with, and they shouldn’t be differentiated by whether you can deal with them or not; all of them equally deserve rejection.”
