Remember Beslan


10 years have passed since the seizure by terrorists of a school in Beslan, North Ossetia. 10 years in which the Russian authorities have avoided serious questions about the explosion used to justify the storming of the school two days later with the use of tanks and heavy artillery. 331 people were killed, over half of them children.

Time has stood still in Oksana Kokova’s bedroom. Her father, Ruslan, likes to keep her door open. Oksana managed to escape after the explosions on the third day, but she returned to the school to help the younger children flee. She was killed in the process. Oksana was talented at sports, and loved karate and knitting. Living alone with her father and older brother, she had become accustomed to taking care of the house. She was friendly and talkative; she liked to take charge. Oksana was 15 years old.
