American intelligence warned Russian authorities that a terrorist attack could occur at the Crocus City Hall concert hall, but Moscow ignored this warning.

The United States notified Russian authorities two weeks before the terrorist attack on Crocus City Hall. The Washington Post reported this on Tuesday, April 2, citing unnamed American officials.

“The high level of specificity contained in the warning underscores Washington’s belief that ISIS is preparing an attack that threatens large numbers of civilians, and directly contradicts Moscow’s claims that the warnings of the US is too broad to help prevent an attack.” – said the material.

It was noted that the warning of a possible terrorist attack on the Crocus City Hall raised new questions about why the Russian authorities did not take stronger measures to protect the hall where the gunmen killed men more than 140 people and burned the building.

The author of the material recalled that a branch of the Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack, which became the largest in terms of the number of victims in the Russian Federation in the last 20 years. US officials have said publicly that the group, known as the Islamic State-Khorasan, or ISIS-K, is “solely responsible,” but Russian President Vladimir Putin has sought to blame Ukraine.

“The attack further undermines the image of strength and security that the Russian leader seeks to show and exposes the main weaknesses in the country’s security apparatus, which has been consumed by more than two years of war in Ukraine,” said of publication.

The publication also cited analysts and observers of Russian politics who say Putin’s operatives appear more concerned with silencing dissent and political opposition than rooting out terrorist plots.

As you know, a terrorist attack on the Crocus City Hall complex in Krasnogorsk near Moscow took place on the night of March 22: several armed people opened fire on concertgoers and started a fire. According to the latest data, the tragedy claimed the lives of 144 people and injured another 551 people.

Let’s recall that more than 50% of Russian citizens believe that the responsibility for the terrorist attack on the Crocus City Hall concert hall near Moscow allegedly rests with the Ukrainian authorities.
