That night they celebrated Bastille Day in one of the bars in the port. The owner, seeing racing through a street crowd, tightly closed the door, extinguished all the lights and turned off the music. 15 minutes, says Catherine, still sat in the silence and darkness, worrying that they took hostage. The owner, not knowing at the time what had happened, and fearing that you, the terrorists burst into the bar, chose this way to protect their visitors. When our compatriot and the other customers were released, people still ran through the streets.
– They shouted: “Kalashnikov, Kalashnikov, run,” the subdued voice says Catherine. Thoughts after these events back home in Russia, she doesn’t have:
– First, the local school goes, my 15-year-old daughter, and then, unless Moscow is now safer? – says the woman.
Some places are open, some are closed from Friday:
– No logic here, all working on the mood, on the same street Barber cuts hair in the morning and a shop with products and closed, – said our interlocutor. Parks also don’t work – the police might not want to allow large concentrations of people anywhere.
