Putin Acknowledges Russian Terror Attack Carried Out by Radical Islamists and Questions the Motives Behind It

Putin blames radical Islamists for Moscow attack, questions motives

Russian President Vladimir Putin acknowledged on Monday that the attack on a concert hall outside of Moscow last Friday was carried out by radical Islamists. The assault resulted in at least 139 deaths, and Putin stated during a press conference that the crime was committed by individuals with an ideology that has been fought for centuries in the Islamic world.

Despite acknowledging the involvement of radical Islamists, Putin also raised the question of “who benefits” from the attack. He suggested that Ukrainian authorities may be linked to the event and emphasized the importance of further investigation to determine the true motives behind it.

Putin connected the attack to those who have been confronting Russia since 2014, referring to them as a neo-Nazi regime in Kyiv. He believed that the attackers sought to spread chaos in the country but acknowledged the unity and determination of the Russian people to resist such evil acts.

Alexander Bastrikin, director of Russia’s Investigative Committee (FSB), provided details about the attack, including a timeline of events and weapons used by suspects. Over 200 searches and seizures related to the case have been conducted, with 11 people arrested for their involvement.

The suspects have confessed their involvement in the attack and some have been sentenced to provisional arrest for terrorism. Among them are a father and his two sons who allegedly provided assistance to perpetrators, including accommodation, transportation, and money.

The investigation into this tragic event is ongoing as authorities work to uncover more information about suspects’ involvement and motives behind it. Putin reiterated his need for thorough investigative efforts to reveal all truths surrounding this event
