From something called KazKaz Center:

"On this photograph... (of dead children)...are not the children who have died in Beslan. On this photograph are bodies of the Chechen children who died by the hand of the Russian army in autumn 1999. Their deaths did not warrant the call-up of the UN Security Council, and Dr. Roshal did not rush to the scene of the tragedy with water and medicines to try and persuade terrorists to spare children’s lives. They were Chechen children, and Russia did not shudder at the horror of the crime it committed. It simply did not notice.

Civilian casualties in armed conflict between armed forces are one thing. Deliberate murder is another. The mindset that produces this kind of thinking is beyond the comprehension of civilized people.
