The president of Russia, Vladimir Putin, 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. Putin mentioned that the crime was committed by individuals with radical Islamist ideologies that have been in conflict with the Islamic world for centuries. Despite this acknowledgment, Putin emphasized the need to investigate who might benefit from such an event.

Putin 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. Putin expressed concern over the possibility of the attack being intended to spread chaos in the country but noted that the Russian people have shown unity and determination to combat such acts of terrorism.

The Russian Investigative Committee reported that the attack resulted in 139 deaths, with investigations revealing that 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, suggesting a premeditated plan of attack. Over 200 searches and seizures have been conducted in connection with the case, with several individuals 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 the suspects are brothers and a father who allegedly provided support to the perpetrators. The investigation is ongoing to determine the full extent of the plot and identify any additional individuals involved. Putin reiterated the importance of uncovering the motives behind the attack to prevent future acts of terrorism.
