Russia blitzes Ukraine with 57 missiles & drones as shameless Putin tries to shift blame for Moscow concert massacre

Published:

A VENGEFUL Vladimir Putin blitzed Ukraine with 57 missiles and drones in THIRD night of terror as he seeks to shift blame for Moscow massacre.

It comes after the Russian tyrant vowed to “punish” those behind the ISIS concert hall terror attack on Friday – which he is attempting to link to Kyiv.

Poland’s armed forces said one of Russia’s cruise missiles briefly violated Polish airspace in a dramatic escalation between Moscow and Nato.

Several explosions rocked Kyiv early on Sunday, but Ukraine air defence forces destroying about a dozen missiles over the capital, said Serhiy Popko, head of Kyiv’s military administration.

Russia has been pounding Ukraine for days in attacks portrayed by Moscow as revenge for what Russia called ‘Ukrainian’ attacks during its recent presidential election.

“For the third pre-dawn morning this week, all of Ukraine is under an air alert and has been advised to seek shelter,” U.S. Ambassador Bridget Brink said early today.

“Russia continues to indiscriminately launch drones and missiles with no regard for millions of civilians, violating international law.”

The newest strikes could be seen as a revenge-fuelled response to the deadliest attack to hit Russia for almost two decades and the deadliest in Europe to have been claimed by ISIS.

Russian officials expect the death toll to rise further, with more than 100 wounded in hospital.

In a snarling TV address yesterday, Putin called the attack a “barbaric, terrorist act”, adding that “all four direct perpetrators … all those who shot and killed people, have been found and detained”.

Russian television showed security services interrogating four bloodied men, who spoke Russian with an accent, on a road in the western Bryansk region, which borders both Ukraine and Belarus.

“They tried to escape and were travelling towards Ukraine, where, according to preliminary data, a window was prepared for them on the Ukrainian side to cross the state border,” said Putin.

Kyiv has angrily dismissed the claims by the Russian leader as total nonsense.

Last night, Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky fumed that Putin was a “low-life” and a “b*****d” for suggesting his war-torn country was behind it.

“What happened yesterday in Moscow is obviously something that Putin and other b*****ds are just trying to blame on someone else.”

He added: “That low-life Putin, instead of dealing with his Russian citizens, addressing them, was silent for a day, thinking about how to bring it to Ukraine.

“Everything is absolutely predictable.”
