"Well then, guys: is it to be fascists, the Caucasus or a man-made disaster?" ...

"I don't know, boss ... The Caucasus won't cut it right now - it'll look as though we've got no stability down there again. People will ask what we've been doing for the past ten years. And Ramzan will get upset .... "

"I'm totally against a man-made disaster. Wasn't the Sayano-Shushenskaya power plant enough for you? Actually. at the time I came out for a terrorist attack ... they should have listened to me  ... We might have been able to turn the screws a bit ... But this way it just harms the government's image."

"Or maybe it's the machinations of western intelligence services? To stop us getting up from our knees ... "

"Don't be silly - for God's sake, it's a serious story ... "

"Well, so what is it to be?"

"They've decided it's fascists."

"If it's fascists it's fascists... Listen, but what really happened?"

"Hell if I know... Isn't it all the same to you?"
