Putin attributes Moscow attack to radical Islamists and questions motives.

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

Despite acknowledging this fact, Putin emphasized the need to investigate who may have benefited from such an event. He suggested that Ukrainian authorities may be involved and called for a thorough investigation into the incident to determine its true motives.

Putin linked the attack to previous conflicts between Russia and the neo-Nazi regime in Kyiv since 2014. He expressed concern about the possibility of it being intended to spread chaos in the country but noted that the Russian people have shown resilience and determination in combating terrorism.

The Russian Investigative Committee reported that the attack resulted in 139 deaths, with investigations revealing four attackers arrived at the concert hall armed with AK-47 assault rifles and ammunition. The suspects were found with materials to set fire to the venue, indicating a premeditated plan of attack. Over 200 searches and seizures have been conducted in connection with the case, leading to several arrests of individuals involved in the attack.

Those arrested have confessed their roles in the attack, with some being sentenced to provisional arrest for terrorism. Among those arrested are brothers and a father who allegedly provided support to perpetrators. The investigation is ongoing, aiming to uncover the full extent of plot and identify any additional individuals involved.

Putin reiterated his commitment to preventing future acts of terrorism by uncovering their motives behind this attack.
