Lukashenko disputes Putin’s claim and states terrorists are seeking refuge in Belarus

Russian President Vladimir Putin’s Claims of Western Involvement in Moscow Terror Attack Spark International Outcry and Escalating Tension

On Friday, a terrorist attack occurred in Moscow that resulted in 139 deaths and was claimed by the Islamic State. The head of the FSB, Alexander Bortnikov, accused Ukraine and Western secret services of facilitating the attack. However, Ukraine denied any involvement and dismissed Russia’s accusations as lies.

In an unexpected turn of events, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko challenged Russia’s narrative by stating that the attackers initially tried to flee to Belarus, not Ukraine. He revealed that Belarus and Russia coordinated actions to intercept the suspects’ car fleeing towards the border with Ukraine and Belarus. Belarus quickly established border checkpoints, preventing the suspects from entering their country.

Russian President Vladimir Putin continues to insist that Ukraine and the West are behind the attack, claiming that Ukraine provided a “window” for the attackers to cross the border. Despite this claim, there is no concrete evidence linking either Ukraine or Western secret services to the attack.

The FSB head also mentioned that eight suspects are now in preventive prison, including a Kyrgyz-born man who may be connected to the mass shooting. The comments from Russian officials suggest an escalation of tension and potential military action in Ukraine as Moscow seeks to impose its narrative and control over the situation.

The incident has sparked outrage among human rights groups who have called on international leaders to condemn Russia’s actions and hold them accountable for their role in this terror attack.
