This act of terror in Moscow has handed to Western intelligence, an enormous treasure trove of intelligence analytics. Despite the ISIS-K claim to responsibility and the release to the internet of the video by them, Vladimir Putin insists this attack was ordered by the sovereign government of Ukraine. If ISIS-K had not been responsible, they would not have been able to release the video and claim responsibility. Yet the President of Russia dares to lie to his own people and the world while brutally using this heinous attack to justify further hypersonic missile attacks on Ukraine in the past 4 ..read more
