Challenging Russia’s Narrative: Belarus Dismantles Ukraine Attack Conspiracy Theories

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

Russian President Vladimir Putin and the FSB have accused Ukraine and Western secret services of facilitating the terrorist attack in Moscow last Friday, which resulted in 139 deaths and was claimed by the Islamic State. However, Ukraine denied any involvement and dismissed Russia’s accusations as lies. In an unexpected turn of events, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko challenged Russia’s narrative by stating that the attackers initially tried to flee to Belarus, not Ukraine.

According to Lukashenko, Belarus and Russia coordinated actions to intercept the suspects’ car fleeing towards the border with Ukraine and Belarus. Belarus quickly established border checkpoints, preventing the suspects from entering the country. On the other hand, Moscow continues to push the theory of an international conspiracy against Russia, with FSB head Alexander Bortnikov stating that Western and Ukrainian special services were involved in facilitating the attack.

Bortnikov also mentioned that the suspects had planned to travel to Ukraine and be received as heroes but did not provide any 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.
