The secretary of the Russian Security Council accuses Ukraine of being behind the deadly shooting which took place at Crocus City Hall, a concert hall on the outskirts of Moscow. Far from contradicting him, Vladimir Putin affirmed that the attack in the suburbs of Moscow is part of the logic of Ukraine.

The Kremlin said Tuesday that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was a special Jew, in response to a question about the likelihood that he and Ukraine could be linked to the jihadists who claimed responsibility for the massacre of the Crocus City Hall performance hall.

Russia, which already accuses the Ukrainian authorities of Nazism to explain its assault on Ukraine, has implied that Kiev could be involved in the deadliest attack on Russian territory since the early 2000s and which was claimed by the armed group Islamic State (IS).

Well, it's a rather special Jew who is there. A Jew who, in many ways, shows sympathy and a penchant for the nationalist spirit that permeates the leaders of the Kiev regime.

A quote from Dmitry Peskov, the Kremlin spokesman


Vladimir Putin recognized the day before, three days after the attack and the IS group's claim, that the attack had been committed by Islamists, but he also again insisted on a Ukrainian track, affirming that the four attackers, Tajik nationals, were trying to reach Ukraine.

When investigators deem it appropriate and possible, information will of course be provided provided, Peskov said. As long as the investigation is ongoing, the official authorities cannot afford to make statements on this subject, he added.

For his part, the director of the Russian security services (FSB), Alexander Bortnikov, affirmed that the alleged perpetrators of the attack near Moscow should be welcomed as heroes in Ukraine.

He also accused Ukrainian and Western secret services of facilitating the attack.

We believe that the action was prepared both by radical Islamists themselves and, of course, facilitated by Western special services, and that the Ukrainian special services themselves are directly involved.

For his part, the Secretary of the Security Council of the Russian Federation, responding to the question of whether Kiev or the IS group had orchestrated the attack, replied of course that it was. ;Ukraine, to Russian agencies.

The head of state media RT, Margarita Simonian, publicly denied the involvement of x27;IS and accused Ukraine and President Zelensky of having organized the attack in the suburbs of Moscow which left at least 139 dead on Friday, calling him non-human.

< p class="StyledBodyHtmlParagraph-sc-48221190-4 hnvfyV">Vladimir Putin, for his part, affirmed on Tuesday that the attack on Moscow was part of the logic of Ukraine, which he also accused of recreating Hitler Youth.

Online, memes mocked Russian remarks about the supposed link between Ukraine and Islamism, with one showing a portrait of Mr. Zelensky bearded and wearing a turban accompanied by words: According to Kremlin propaganda, Ukraine is now a gay neo-Nazi Islamist state led by a Jew.

For the opposition Russian, the authorities have been blinded by the repression of their detractors and the offensive against Ukraine, losing sight of the jihadist threat while Russia has been the target of numerous Islamist attacks in the past. p>

Jihadist groups view Russia as a legitimate target, with Moscow fighting the IS group in Syria, the Sahel and having waged war against Islamist and separatist groups in Chechnya, a Muslim region in the South Caucasus.

Vladimir Putin established his image as a strong man precisely by fighting these groups, responsible for #x27;particularly deadly attacks such as the hostage-taking at the Beslan school in 2004 (causing the death of 330 people, including 186 children).
