America had given warning 15 days in advance, then terrorists created a massacre in Moscow's concert hall – US Embassy in Russia had given warning 15 days in advance then terrorists attack in Moscow Crocus City Hall ntc theinsiderinsight

Gunmen dressed in military uniform opened fire during a music concert at the Crocus City Hall near the Russian capital Moscow, killing at least 40 people and injuring more than 100. This is the worst such attack in Russia in the last few years. In a video viral on social media, at least five gunmen are seen entering the concert hall and opening fire on civilians. When the attack took place in the Crocus Hall, a concert by the famous Soviet rock band 'Picnic' was going on.

Interestingly, the US Embassy in Moscow had issued an advisory on its website on March 7, in which the possibility of such an attack was expressed. The US Embassy had issued an advisory to its citizens saying that extremists could target large gatherings in Moscow. The US Embassy had advised its citizens living in Moscow not to go to crowded places or any event where a large number of people gather. Just 15 days after this advisory, such a huge terrorist attack took place during a music concert in Moscow.

However, White House National Security Advisor John Kirby says that the US had no intelligence about the attack on Moscow's Crocus City Hall. In another statement issued after this attack, America gave a clean chit to Ukraine. The White House said there was 'no indication that Ukraine or Ukrainians were involved in the terrorist attack in Moscow'. Russia has raised questions on this statement of America and said that if Washington had any apprehension or information about planning such an attack, then it should have shared it with Moscow.

If America had information then we should have told: Russia

“The White House said it found no indication that Ukraine or Ukrainians were involved in the terrorist attack in Moscow,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in a statement. On what basis are officials sitting in Washington drawing conclusions about someone's innocence in the midst of this tragedy? If the United States had or has any reliable information in this regard, it should be immediately transferred to the Russian side. And if there is no such information, then the White House has no right to give a clean chit to anyone. Russia will find out who is behind this attack.

According to AP report, Russia's top investigative agency is investigating the shooting and explosion in the Moscow concert hall as a terrorist attack. Due to the fire that broke out after the explosion, most of the concert hall was engulfed in flames and the roof partially collapsed. According to Russian state media, the attackers threw a grenade or incendiary bomb, causing a fire in the hall. After this horrific terrorist attack on the Crocus City Hall, all public programs in Moscow have been canceled till this week. An adviser to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky denied any Ukrainian involvement in the attack in a post on Twitter.
