The Russian Security Council assures that Ukraine is involved in the attack in Moscow

MADRID, 26 Mar. (EUROPA PRESS) -

The secretary of the Russian Security Council, Nikolai Patrushev, assured this Tuesday that Ukraine is involved in last Friday's attack on a concert hall in Moscow, where four armed men broke into the building and killed around 140 people.

Questioned by the press about whether Ukraine or the Islamic State was responsible for the attack, the 'number three' of the Security Council responded with a forceful: "Ukraine, of course," according to the Russian news agency TASS.

Patrushev, who heads the Security Council only behind the president of Russia, Vladimir Putin, and the organization's vice president, Dimitri Medvedev, has not provided more information or argued his response.

The Secretary of the Security Council is a staunch defender of the Russian invasion of Ukraine and has come to assure that Russia is not at war, but that the conflict is rather an attempt by the West to antagonize Moscow and kyiv.

These statements by Patrushev come less than 24 hours after Putin himself acknowledged that the attack had been the work of "radical Islamists", but also insisted on his theory that Ukraine could be related to the attack. "We're interested in knowing who the customer is," he said.

A concert hall located on the outskirts of Moscow was the scene of a terrorist attack perpetrated by four armed individuals on Friday that claimed the lives of at least 139 people, according to the latest balance confirmed by Russian authorities. In total, eleven people were arrested for their involvement in this attack.
