A devastating attack occurred at Crocus City Hall during a concert by the band Piknik on Friday evening. Four assailants unleashed gunfire, resulting in 139 deaths and injuring another 182 people. Authorities arrested suspects, including at least one individual from Tajikistan, by Sunday. Dmitriy Medvedev has openly denounced these terrorists.

"Everyone is asking me, what should be done? They were apprehended. Kudos to those who captured them. Should they be killed? Absolutely. And so it will be," Medvedev, the Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation, expressed on Telegram on Monday.

Medvedev emphasized that it is "even more crucial to kill everyone involved in this matter." He declared, "Everyone. Those who financed, sympathized, or assisted. Kill them all," voiced the former president of Russia.

The United States issued a warning to Putin

American officials, drawing on intelligence, alerted Moscow about a potential terrorist threat early in March. Despite the tragedy at Crocus City Hall, Vladimir Putin, in his address, refrained from mentioning Islamic militants.

The Russian leader echoed the information initially disclosed by the Federal Security Service, noting that in response to the attack, 11 individuals were detained. He also mentioned that the four direct attackers "attempted to flee and were heading towards Ukraine," where facilities had been ostensibly arranged for them to cross the border from the Ukrainian side. Kyiv has refuted any involvement in the attack.
