National Day of Mourning in Russia

First Statement: KYIV/MOSCOW – Russia is remembering more than 130 victims of a terrorist attack at a concert hall near Moscow on a national day of mourning this Sunday. Terrorist militants Islamic State have already claimed responsibility for Saturday night's attack, but Russian President Putin saw a “Ukrainian clue” behind the attack – but offered no evidence. Kiev denied any involvement in the crime. Abroad, Serbia and Nicaragua joined in the commemoration with their own days of mourning. At least 133 people, including three children, were killed in the attack on Friday evening. Many more may be found under the rubble.

The four main suspects in the terror attack were brought to the Russian capital for questioning on Saturday evening. As the state agency Tass also reported, the four were taken in a highly secured convoy from the Bryansk region in the south of the country, where they were arrested, by a so-called investigative team. An application for an arrest warrant is expected to be submitted to the court in the coming days. They all face life in prison, Doss said. 11 suspects have been arrested since the attack.

Zelenskyj: Moscow always blames others

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky flatly rejected Putin's attempts to claim shared responsibility for Ukraine's attack with baseless accusations. “Of course, after yesterday's incident in Moscow, Putin and other bastards are trying to shift the blame to someone else,” Zelensky said in his daily video address on Saturday evening. The Russian side always uses the same methods. “They always blame others.” After the events at the concert hall, “that absolute nobody Putin” took a day of silence instead of taking care of his Russian citizens. Instead, Putin was thinking “how can we bring this to Ukraine?”

Zelensky accused Russia of spreading terrorism. Russians come to Ukraine to burn cities “and try to shift the blame to Ukraine.” They tortured and raped people – and blamed the victims. “They've brought hundreds of thousands of their own terrorists here on Ukrainian soil to fight against us, and they don't care what's happening in their own country.”

Russia will pay particular attention to when the Patriots built in Japan under US license will be exported to the US and then to Ukraine. If that happens, it will have serious consequences for bilateral Russian-Japanese relations, “including our retaliatory measures,” Nostrev said. (red mit Agenturmaterial)
