Despite traumatic events and the threat of another attack, the people of Moscow have been going about their business.
Early on Tuesday morning, some people came to pay their respects to victims at Domodedovo airport as it began operating normally.
‘‘We won’t forget what happened yesterday, but I’m not afraid,’‘ one man said.
‘‘Actually, it’s not that terrible. Flights weren’t cancelled. Lightning doesn’t strike twice. There is heightened security, not like they promised, but still, I hope it’s better,’‘ said another man.
On the streets of the capital, the question of security was also on the minds of many people, with some asking if enough was being done to prevent such attacks.
‘‘The underground is secure, but why weren’t the airports the same? Why are people with bombs able to enter without being stopped,’‘ said one woman.
Many Muscovites are likely to share such sentiments after what has been a stark reminder of the capital’s vulnerability to terrorist strikes.
