Moscow Attack Fallout: Russian State Media Blames Ukraine and Western Allies

Russian state media has pointed fingers at Ukraine and Western powers for the deadly attack on the Crocus Hall, disregarding Ukraine’s denial of involvement. However, some independent commentators challenge these claims, suggesting that state security’s focus on the Ukraine conflict may have led to oversight in preventing domestic attacks.

One notable example of disinformation by Russian state media is the broadcast by NTV of a video featuring what seemed to be AI-generated audio of Ukraine’s top security official, Oleksiy Danilov. This video, aired shortly after the attack, purported to show Danilov making incendiary remarks about Moscow. However, further investigation revealed that the clip was a manipulation, combining audio from two separate interviews conducted in the past week.

While some commentators in Russian media question whether the Islamic State group (IS) was behind the Moscow attack, dismissing it as a “Western version” of events, others argue against this narrative. Dmitry Kiselyov, a prominent pro-Kremlin figure, highlighted discrepancies in attributing the attack to IS, pointing out that the attackers sought refuge in Ukraine after the incident, contrary to typical IS tactics.

Despite IS claiming responsibility for the attack and providing video evidence, Russian state media continues to push alternative theories. Margarita Simonyan, editor-in-chief of RT (Russia Today), denied IS involvement, asserting that the attackers lacked the hallmarks of religious extremism commonly associated with IS.

Moreover, there have been attempts to blame Ukraine and Western powers for the attack. Some commentators suggested connections between the attackers’ weapons and pro-Russian groups in Ukraine, while others propagated conspiracy theories involving British intelligence and the United States.

However, independent commentators have scrutinized these narratives, highlighting inconsistencies such as the location of arrests near the Belarusian border rather than in Ukraine. Kirill Martynov, editor at Novaya Gazeta Europe, criticized Russian counter-terrorism agencies for their failure to prevent the attack, attributing it to their diversion of resources towards conflicts abroad.

Amidst the blame game, exiled pundits like Dmitry Kolezev emphasize the lack of credible evidence implicating Ukraine and question Russia’s role in exacerbating global tensions. These voices underscore the need for transparency and accountability in addressing security threats, rather than succumbing to divisive rhetoric and misinformation.
