Russian President Vladimir Putin Links Recent Terror Attack to Ukraine and Calls for Thorough Investigation

Putin attributes Moscow attack to radical Islamists and questions motives.

Vladimir Putin, the President of Russia, stated during a press conference on Monday that the recent attack on a concert hall on the outskirts of Moscow was carried out by radical Islamists. The attack resulted in at least 139 deaths and was committed by individuals with extremist ideologies that have been at odds with the Islamic world for centuries.

Despite his acknowledgment, Putin emphasized the need to investigate who might benefit from such an event. He suggested that Ukrainian authorities may be involved in the attack and called for a thorough investigation into the incident to determine the true motives behind it. He linked the attack to previous confrontations with Russia by the neo-Nazi regime in Kyiv since 2014.

The Russian Investigative Committee reported that four attackers arrived at the concert hall armed with AK-47 assault rifles and ammunition. They were found with materials to set fire to the venue, suggesting a premeditated plan of attack. Over 200 searches and seizures have been conducted in connection with the case, resulting in several individuals being arrested for their involvement in the attack.

Those arrested have confessed to their roles in the attack, with some being sentenced to provisional arrest for terrorism. Among them are brothers and a father who allegedly provided support to perpetrators. The investigation is ongoing to uncover more information about this plot and identify any additional individuals involved. Putin reiterated his commitment to finding out who orchestrated this act of terrorism so that future attacks can be prevented.

In conclusion, Putin’s statement regarding this terrorist incident has brought attention once again to tensions between Russia and Ukraine, which continue despite efforts made by both countries towards peace talks.

Putin emphasized on investigating those responsible for this heinous crime, including possible involvement of Ukrainian authorities.

He also highlighted that such acts will not be tolerated by Russians and they are committed towards fighting terrorism together as one nation.

The Russian Investigative Committee’s report has shed light on details of this tragic incident and ongoing investigation is expected to bring justice for all those affected by it.
