    MOSCOW, February 6 (RIA Novosti) - Russian lawmakers will toughen all laws relating to the fight against terrorism, State Duma (parliament's lower house) Chairman Boris Gryzlov said while commenting on the explosion in the Moscow subway.

    In the Speaker's words, he already gave such an instruction to specialized committees of the State Duma, and this work will be conducted "as soon as possible." Gryzlov called the act of terrorism, which killed 30 or more people, "another crime of international terrorism forces." However, the explosion was not connected with the coming presidential elections in Russia, the speaker believes. In his words, "international terrorists commit their crimes without linking them to any events or dates."
