President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has reacted sharply to attempts by the Russian side, in particular dictator Vladimir Putin, to shift responsibility for yesterday's terrorist attack on the Crocus City Hall shopping center to Ukraine.

"What happened yesterday in Moscow, obviously, Putin and other scum are just trying to blame it on someone else," Zelenskyy emphasized.

He noted that Kremlin propagandists and the Russian leadership "always have the same methods."

"This has already happened. There have been bombed houses, shootings, and explosions. And they always blame others," the president said.

Zelenskyy added that the Russian occupiers came to the territory of our country, where they burned cities, tortured and raped people, and they are trying to blame Ukraine.

"Yesterday, all this happened, and this lowlife Putin, instead of taking care of his Russian citizens, addressing them, was silent for a day - he was thinking about how to bring it to Ukraine," Zelenskyy said.

He added that all this was "absolutely predictable."

"The hundreds of thousands of Russians who are now killing on Ukrainian land would definitely be enough to stop any terrorists. And if Russians are ready to die in silence in "crocuses" and not ask any questions of their special services, then Putin will try to turn more than one such situation in favor of his personal power. Terrorists must always lose, and I thank each and every one of you who truly defend life!" Zelenskyy emphasizes.

The President also expressed gratitude to all the defenders who are fighting against terror and defending Ukraine.

Terrorist attack in a shopping center near Moscow and Putin's false accusations

On the evening of Friday, March 22, several armed men in camouflage opened fire in the shopping center Crocus City Hall in Krasnogorsk, Moscow region. According to the Russians, more than 100 people were killed in the attack.

Earlier, a number of media outlets reported that the attack was organized by the ISIS group. However, other sources deny this information.

The Defense Intelligence of Ukraine called the attack a planned and deliberate provocation by Russian special services on the instructions of dictator Vladimir Putin.

Russian dictator Vladimir Putin commented for the first time on the terrorist attack in the Crocus City Hall shopping center. He repeated the claim that the alleged terrorist suspects wanted to escape to Ukraine, where a "window" had been prepared for them.

Russian security forces said that they had allegedly detained four people involved in the terrorist attack at the Crocus City Hall in the Moscow region. The Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation claims that the attackers allegedly had contacts in Ukraine and were about to cross the border.

In a commentary to RBC-Ukraine, Defense Intelligence representative Andrii Yusov denies the claims of the Federal Security Service and emphasizes that the Russian regime wants to bring the "Ukrainian trail" to light.

Earlier today, the Russians accused Tajik citizens of committing a terrorist attack, but later Russian media stated that all the detainees were Russians.

Oleksandr Musiienko, head of the Center for Military and Legal Studies, told RBC-Ukraine that the terrorist attack on the Crocus City Hall shopping center near Moscow could have been carried out by the ISIS group. But Putin and Russian propagandists will not miss an opportunity to blame Ukraine.
