A spokeswoman for Moscow's busiest airport says 35 people have been killed by an explosion in its international arrivals hall.

Domodedovo Airport spokeswoman Yelena Galanova made the statement Monday on Russia's NTV television.

Other officials put the death toll at 31 and said about 130 people were injured in the explosion Monday afternoon. President Dmitry Medvedev said it looked like a terror attack and the state RIA Novosti news agency said the blast may have been set off by a suicide bomber.

Putin thinks and acts tactically in a very clever manner. He is never to be underestimated. But he comes up way short in the far-seeing strategy category. His leadership of Russia will hurt Russia and Russians long term. Not a small part of this deficiency of his is due to his cynical assessment of freedom and America. No one should be surprised by his alliances with really bad dudes, both Islamic and non-Islamic. It's in keeping with his worldview of things.
