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


Mar 26, 2024

The secretary of the Russian Security Council, Nikolai Patrushev, claimed on Tuesday that Ukraine was involved in the recent 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 responded, “Ukraine, of course,” as reported by the Russian news agency TASS. As the head of the Security Council, Patrushev stands behind only President Vladimir Putin and Vice President Dimitri Medvedev in the hierarchy.

Despite providing no further information or justification for his accusation, Patrushev is known for his support of the Russian 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, resulting in the deaths of at least 139 people. The latest reports confirmed that eleven individuals were arrested in connection with the attack. The situation remains tense as conflicting theories and accusations surround the tragic event.
