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

Russian President Vladimir Putin and his government continue to insist that Ukraine and the West are behind the terrorist attack in Moscow last Friday, which resulted in 139 deaths and was claimed by Islamic State. The head of the FSB, Alexander Bortnikov, accused Ukrainian and Western secret services of facilitating the attack, a claim that Ukraine denied and dismissed as lies.

However, unexpectedly, Belarus’ president Alexander Lukashenko challenged Russia’s narrative by stating that the attackers initially tried to flee to Belarus, not Ukraine. Lukashenko 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 the country.

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. Despite this information, Russian officials continue to push their theory of an international conspiracy against Russia. 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.
