Russia’s state media attributes the incident in Moscow to the West and Ukraine.

While dismissing Ukraine’s denial of any involvement, Russian official media is adamantly accusing the West and Ukraine for the tragic attack on the Crocus Hall, echoing earlier assertions by the Kremlin. Independent-minded critics, on the other hand, are skeptical of such assertions, claiming that state security failed to stop this attack at home because it was preoccupied with the conflict in Ukraine. The most shocking attempt at misinformation by Russian state media may have been when NTV aired a film featuring Oleksiy Danilov, the top security official in Ukraine, that seemed to have been created using artificial intelligence. Shortly after the incident, the film appeared on Russia’s third most popular station. Danilov was supposedly heard stating, “It’s fun in Moscow today. I hope we can plan something enjoyable for them on a regular basis.”

However, we have proven that the video clip is a combination of two separate interviews that were released over the past week, and that the voice in the video was most likely produced by artificial intelligence (AI). Calling this the “Western version” of events, prominent pro-Kremlin bloggers and Russian TV presenters have questioned whether the Islamic State organization (IS) was behind the Moscow attack. During his prime-time news review program on March 24, popular commentator and pro-Kremlin propagandist Dmitry Kiselyov stated, “There are already attempts to have everyone chasing down the wrong lead.” “IS has distinct characteristics. Suicide attackers who do not attempt to escape after carrying out acts of violence in the name of IS,” he said, asserting: “It is an indisputable fact that the terrorists sought salvation in Ukraine, which is where they headed after committing the crime.” Despite the fact that the Islamic State group (IS) acknowledged responsibility for the attack, these remarks are made.

Additionally, the group has released verified video showing the attackers’ points of view, which the BBC has been able to access. “The motivation behind this act of violence by this bunch of radical Islamists is unknown. State-run Channel One claimed that “the explanations of American experts seem forced, as if tailoring a solution to a ready-made answer.” Similar claims were also made by Margarita Simonyan, head editor of Russia Today, the state channel RT. “The ghouls lacked “shahid belts,” or explosive belts. They were not going to perish. None of them were extreme believers. ISIS wasn’t even close by,” she stated on Telegram. There have also been other attempts to assign responsibility for the attack on Western nations and Ukraine. Some publications, such as the state-run Rossiyskaya Gazeta, assert that the weapons used by the assailants, which were camouflaged in yellow-green, “are very similar to the weapons that traitors from the Russian Volunteer Corps use.” The gang is fighting for Ukraine as a pro-Russian formation.

Even more absurd accusations were made by certain commentators. Gennady Zyuganov, the leader of the Communist Party, stated on Rossiya 24 TV, a rolling news channel: “Unfortunately, many of our citizens have not fully realised that the Anglo-Saxons, NATO members are simply waging a war of destruction on the Russian world.” He said, “This wild, absolutely disgusting barbaric terrorist attack is eloquent evidence of this,” and then he advanced a conspiracy theory suggesting that the US was responsible for the 9/11 incident. Andrei Medvedev, a State Rossiya 1 reporter, claimed to have seen the hand of MI6, saying that it “chose precisely migrants to carry out a monstrous terrorist attack” and “patronises the Ukrainian HUR” (Main Intelligence Directorate).
