Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev said investigators
looking into the Moscow metro bombings were working on all the possible
versions, including Georgia's possible involvement, reports Georgian
news site Civil.ge.

In an interview with the Russian news agency Interfax, Patrushev was
asked by the journalist: "There is an opinion that terrorist acts in
Moscow could have been organized from abroad. Do you believe that?"

"All the versions need to be checked," Patrushev responded. "For
example, there is Georgia and its leader Saakashvili, whose actions
are unpredictable."

"Unfortunately, a number of countries provide him with support,
including military assistance. We state that it is unacceptable. He
has already waged a war once. It is not ruled out that he will do
that again."

"We had information that individual agents of Georgian special
services were keeping contacts with terrorist organizations in the
Russian North Caucasus. We need to check this version too in respect
of the Moscow terrorist acts," Patrushev added.
