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

In Moscow, last Friday, an attack occurred that resulted in 139 deaths. The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack, but Russian President Vladimir Putin and his government continue to insist that Ukraine and the West are behind it. Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko has challenged Russia’s narrative by stating that the attackers initially tried to flee to Belarus, not Ukraine.

Despite this, Russia continues to push the theory of an international conspiracy against it, with FSB head Alexander Bortnikov stating that Western and Ukrainian special services were involved in facilitating the attack. The suspects had planned to travel to Ukraine and be received as heroes, according to Bortnikov. However, he did not provide any specific evidence for these claims.

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 eight suspects are now in preventive prison, including a Kyrgyz-born man who may be connected to the mass shooting.

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.
