Ok... dont make the paranoid even more paranoid.... this is a silly comment to make....
i have seen no visions of this in my pre-cog state of mind so it wont happen.... what i have seen though is a big earthquake event happening in a deserted place somewhere like Arizona!!

There are few similarities.
There is no major sporting event being held or even scheduled there.
London will be policed and monitored etc by one of the most up to date and security conscious police forces who will be supported by one of the most efficient Security Services all of whom have vast experience in dealing with security and terrorist threats.
Dnepropetrovsk is a relatively soft and unsuspecting target.
As far as I'm aware no-one has claimed responsibility for this outrage so there could be any of a multitude of motivations etc.
I just hope that whoever is responsible is caught and brought to justice before they can commit any further acts of terror against innocent people.

Considering that the devices were placed in trash cans in close proximity to injured persons it would be safe to assume the devices are low yield due to explosion characteristics (ie number of injuries). Also shrapnel type would be a good indication.
This would be a priority as detonation type of devices would be something the police would want to know asap.
PS this is potentially more worrying that they are homemade. They have no idea how many have been made, these devices also were dropped in trash cans so are not to big. Suggests some level of sophistication.edit on 27-4-2012 by murch because: (no reason given)
ARE YOU SERIOUS.
The Euros 2012 are about to be held in that country. This area will be packed with football fans in less than a month for a competition thats second to the world cup. This area will be a major transport and accommodation hub for hundreds of thousands of people.
As for the London situation the point is this guy is a wing nut. It happens everywhere, yes. It also highlights that there is no accounting for nut jobs.
PS just realised your in England. They play 2 games less than 250 km from that city. Loads of england fans will be staying there as donetsk will be charging a fortune for accommodation.

Why stage an attack prior to an event. The purpose of this tactic is to disrupt, affect and destabilize populations.
A scenario: Attacks continue small scale across Ukraine. Nobody is caught but injuries mount. You then invite hundreds of the highest paid sportsmen in Europe to come to the area.
Good luck with that. Their insurance companies alone will not allow them to go. Footballers don't strike me as the bravest.
Whoever has carried this out has determination and abilities. Hopefully an individual but possibly an organisation.
In regards to the purpose of these attacks. It has been achieved. The only purpose of an attack like this is to garner attention to a cause and leave the population scared.

Ever been to London??. Population 8 million in a relatively small area. The place is like a rabbit warren. You can be walking down a nice leafy street, turn a corner and find yourself in bandit territory.
