Dictator Vladimir Putin is using the recent terrorist attack near Moscow for one sole purpose. He wants to justify that "Ukraine does not exist," stated Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

Putin's reaction to the terrorist attack didn't surprise Zelenskyy

According to Zelenskyy, the world's attention shift is not the only thing dictator Vladimir Putin has tried to take advantage of.

It wasn't a surprise to him when Putin attempted to blame Ukraine for alleged involvement in the recent terrorist attack near Moscow.

Responsibility for it was claimed by ISIS, and US officials say there is nothing that could cast doubt on this claim. Zelenskyy called Putin's insinuations "ridiculous."

"Even after ISIS took responsibility!" exclaimed President Zelenskyy.

For what purpose Putin is using the terrorist act

President Zelenskyy said that Putin is not concerned whether it's a terrorist act, an economic act, an oil industry issue, or any of these areas.

Putin is using it for maximum consolidation of his society.

"He's using all of that just for the one objective to justify that Ukraine does not exist," said Zelenskyy.

Terrorist attack near Moscow

On March 22, armed individuals stormed the Crocus City Hall, located near Moscow. There was a large gathering of people in the shopping center.

The terrorists indiscriminately shot at Russians and set fire to the exits to prevent escape.

Later in the Russian Federation, citizens of Tajikistan were arrested and accused of the terrorist act. Russian dictator Vladimir Putin claimed that the suspects allegedly attempted to flee to Ukraine through the Bryansk region.

As stated yesterday, on March 27, by the Chief of the Main Directorate of Intelligence Kyrylo Budanov, Russia was aware of the preparation for the terrorist attack at least a month in advance but decided not to act.
