The woman was married to a militant warlord who was killed during a recent special operation. She was married several times. Investigators are searching for the relatives of the Dagestani bandits suspected of masterminding terrorist attack.
A surveillance video has been released of the terrorist attack in Volgograd.
The explosive device was activated by a female assassin. It happened at the entrance of the railway station, in front of the metal detector gate. In the attack at least 18 people died and 50 injured.
This is the second time that Volgograd has become a target by terrorists. The female suicide attacker set off an explosive device, which was equivalent to 10 kg of TNT.
Investigators believe it is likely that the suspected bomber came from the Caucasus, most likely from the Dagestan republic.
President Putin has ordered an investigation to find out who was behind the terrorist attack, and bring the perpetrators to justice said presidential press secretary Dimitri Peskov.
Based on current data, the bombing was committed by a female suicide bomber near the metal detector gate; when she saw the approaching police officers, she got nervous and activated the explosive device. In all likelihood, the number of casualties would have been much higher if she had gotten into the waiting room, which was packed with people.
The identification of the assassin is in progress. Remains of her body has been sent to a specialized lab that does the genetic testing. It is certain that at least, one child is among the dead. There are children among the wounded as well. The Russian Emergencies Ministry has sent a plane to Volgograd with doctors and medical facilities on board.
