Russian Security Council Secretary Blames Ukraine for Moscow Concert Hall Attack, Contradicting Putin’s Statements

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

Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev has accused Ukraine of being 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 Islamic State was responsible for the attack, Patrushev firmly stated, “Ukraine, of course.”

Patrushev is known for his support of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and believes that the conflict between the two countries is not a war but an attempt by Western powers to provoke Moscow and Kyiv. However, these statements contradict Russian President Vladimir 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. At least 139 people were killed in the incident. 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.
