Lukashenko goes against Putin, claims terrorists escaping to Belarus

Russian security service head Alexander Bortnikov has accused Ukrainian and Western secret services of orchestrating the terrorist attack in Moscow last Friday, which resulted in 139 deaths and was claimed by the jihadist group Islamic State. Ukraine has denied any involvement in the attack, but Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko has challenged Russia’s narrative, stating that the terrorists initially tried to flee to Belarus, not Ukraine.

The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack, but both Russian President Vladimir Putin and his government continue to point fingers at Ukraine and the West. Putin claims that Ukraine provided a “window” for the attackers to cross the border, despite heightened security measures due to its proximity to a war zone. Lukashenko, a close ally of Putin, stated that Belarus and Russia coordinated efforts to intercept the suspects’ car as it fled towards the border with Ukraine and Belarus.

Bortnikov further reiterated his belief in an international conspiracy against Russia, stating that radical Islamists with assistance from Western and Ukrainian special services orchestrated the attack. However, no evidence has been provided to support these accusations. The FSB head also mentioned that the identity of the person who ordered the attack is still unknown.

The comments made by Patrushev and Bortnikov reflect Kremlin’s narrative aimed at justifying potential escalations in conflict with Ukraine. With eight suspects now in preventive prison and a Kyrgyz-born man possibly involved in mass shooting tensions between Russia and Ukraine continue to escalate. The Russian regime appears determined to assert its influence over Ukraine potentially leading to further conflict.
