Condolences for Abadan

Crude Accountability expresses its deep condolences to the people of Turkmenistan who lost family and friends in the explosion of military provisions that took place in the town of Abadan.  We grieve together with you in your time of loss.

We appeal to the Turkmen authorities to provide all necessary medical and other assistance to those who have suffered as a result of this terrible tragedy.

We ask the government of Turkmenistan to immediately investigate the incident, to publish a list of those who were wounded and killed, to calculate the losses to each person who was affected by the tragedy and to provide compensation to those who have suffered.

We appeal to the government of Turkmenistan to rebuild the city quickly and allow the citizens of Abadan to return so they can begin to rebuild their lives.


Kate Watters, on behalf of Crude Accountability
