Update 9:57 AM
Russian authorities have now apprehended four suspected terrorists involved in yesterday’s attack. Attached is an AI-translated video from the initial interrogations.


Terrorists attacked concert attendees at Crocus City Hall in Moscow, resulting in at least 60 deaths and 145 injuries. This violence, marked by gunfire and explosions, stands as one of the deadliest events in recent Russian history.

The timing coincided with fans settling in for a performance by the rock band “Picnic,” triggering a swift response and investigation by Russian authorities. ISIL (ISIS) has acknowledged carrying out the attack, which has drawn worldwide denunciation.

What we know:
Despite a statement from ISIS claiming responsibility, Russian media outlets have not (as of 10:39 PM PST) confirmed ISIS carried out the attack. According to RT, “No party immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, while the gunmen did not make any statements or attempt to take hostages, apparently just seeking to kill as many as possible.” Russian media commentators have suggested that Ukraine might have carried out this attack, which Ukraine has denounced as propaganda.


Condemnation from around the world:
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’s spokesman said he “condemns in the strongest possible terms today’s terrorist attack at a concert hall outside Moscow.” He added my “deep condolences to the bereaved families and the people and the Government of the Russian Federation.” Similarly, the UN Security Council strongly condemned the attack, saying it was critical to “hold perpetrators, organizers, financiers and sponsors of these reprehensible acts of terrorism accountable and bring them to justice.”

Echoing this sentiment, Afghanistan’s Taliban administration and Cuba’s government both voiced their condemnation. French President Emmanuel Macron’s statement released said he “strongly condemns the terrorist attack claimed by the Islamic State.” He added, “The images of the horrific attack on innocent people at Crocus City Hall near Moscow are horrific. The background must be clarified quickly. Our deepest condolences go out to the families of the victims.”

Additional global leaders, including Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, condemned the attack and offered their condolences.
