Lukashenko goes against Putin, claims terrorists escaping to Belarus

The Russian security service, FSB, has accused Ukraine and Western secret services of facilitating the attack in Moscow last Friday that left 139 people dead. However, Ukraine has denied any involvement in the attack and dismissed Russia’s accusations as lies. In response, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko challenged Russia’s narrative by 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 it being highly guarded due to its proximity to a war zone. Lukashenko, a close ally of Putin, stated that Belarus and Russia coordinated actions to intercept the suspects’ car as it fled towards the border with Ukraine and Belarus.

The FSB head Alexander Bortnikov reiterated his belief in an international conspiracy against Russia, stating that the attack was orchestrated by radical Islamists with help from Western and Ukrainian special services. He also mentioned that the suspects planned to travel to Ukraine and be received as heroes. Despite these claims, no evidence has been provided to support these accusations. Bortnikov also stated that they have not yet identified who ordered the attack.

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

Overall, it is clear that tensions remain high between Russia and its neighbors over issues related to national security and territorial disputes.
