Russian Security Council Secretary Sows Confusion in the Wake of Moscow Concert Hall Attack

Ukraine’s Involvement in Moscow Attack Confirmed by Russian Security Council

Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev claimed on Tuesday that Ukraine was responsible for the recent terrorist attack on a concert hall in Moscow. Four armed men stormed the building, resulting in the deaths of approximately 140 people. When asked by the press whether Ukraine or the Islamic State was responsible for the attack, Patrushev firmly stated, “Ukraine, of course,” as reported by TASS.

Despite providing no further information or justification for his accusation, Patrushev is known for his support of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. He believes that the conflict between the two countries is not a war but rather an attempt by Western powers to provoke Moscow and Kyiv. These statements from Patrushev contradicted Russian President Putin’s assertion less than 24 hours earlier that the attack was orchestrated by “radical Islamists.” Putin also suggested a possible link to Ukraine, stating, “We’re interested in knowing who the customer is.”

The concert hall, located on the outskirts of Moscow, was the site of a terrorist attack carried out by four armed individuals on Friday. The latest reports confirmed that eleven individuals were arrested in connection with the attack. The situation remains tense as conflicting theories and accusations surround this tragic event.
