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

Belarus Challenges Russia’s Narrative on Moscow Attack: Did Kyrgyz-Born Man Flee to Belarus?

In a surprising turn of events, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko has challenged Russia’s narrative about the attack in Moscow last Friday that resulted in 139 deaths and was claimed by the Islamic State. Lukashenko stated that the attackers initially tried to flee to Belarus, not Ukraine, as Russia had previously claimed.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and his government continue to insist that Ukraine and the West are behind the attack, despite evidence to the contrary. Putin claims that Ukraine provided a “window” for the attackers to cross the border, which is a risky move given the heavily guarded border next to a war zone. However, Ukraine denied any involvement and dismissed Russia’s accusations as lies.

The FSB head, Alexander Bortnikov, has accused Western and Ukrainian special services of facilitating the attack. He mentioned that the suspects had planned to travel to Ukraine and be received as heroes, but did not provide specific evidence for these claims. 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. Eight suspects are now in preventive prison, including a Kyrgyz-born man who may be connected to the mass shooting.
