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

On Tuesday, Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev made a shocking claim that Ukraine was responsible for the recent attack on a concert hall in Moscow. The attack, which took place on Friday, resulted in the deaths of approximately 140 people when four armed men stormed the building. When asked by the press whether Ukraine or Islamic State was responsible for the attack, Patrushev responded without hesitation, “Ukraine, of course.”

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 latest reports confirm that eleven individuals have been arrested in connection with the attack on the concert hall located on Moscow’s outskirts. The situation remains tense as conflicting theories and accusations surround this tragic event. It remains to be seen whether these claims will lead to any concrete action or if they will continue to fuel tensions between Russia and its neighbors.
