    MOSCOW, February 6, 2004. (RIA Novosti) -- Chairman of the Central Elections Commission of the Russian Federation Alexander Veshnyakov believes that the organisers of the terrorist act in the Moscow Metro pursued the aim of destabilising the situation in the country and to frustrate the presidential elections scheduled for March 14th.

    "If somebody had such thoughts, they are not destined to come true," Alexander Veshnyakov told reporters.

    He reminded them that in the run-up to the parliamentary elections in 1999 several terrorist acts were also organised in Moscow but "they have failed to frustrate the elections."
