About our Crocus City Hall Attack news

Latest news on the Crocus City Hall attack in Moscow, providing comprehensive coverage of the deadly terrorist incident, the investigation, suspects, victims, reactions from Russia and the world, and the controversy surrounding allegations of Ukrainian involvement.

On 22 March 2024, a coordinated attack by four gunmen at the Crocus City Hall music venue in Krasnogorsk, Moscow Oblast, Russia, left at least 137 people dead and over 182 injured. The Islamic State – Khorasan Province (IS–KP) claimed responsibility for the attack, which occurred shortly before the Russian band Picnic was scheduled to perform.

Russian authorities have detained 11 people in connection with the attack, including the four suspected assailants who were captured in Bryansk Oblast. On 24 March, the suspects appeared in court and were charged with terrorism. Despite Russian allegations of possible Ukrainian involvement, Ukraine and Western nations have firmly denied these claims, with the US stating there is no indication of Ukrainian involvement. Ukrainian officials have described the allegations as "planned" disinformation and a "smokescreen of propaganda". IS-KP has released videos showing the attackers shooting and slitting the throats of victims while praising Allah, further supporting their claim of responsibility.

The attack has deeply shaken the Moscow community and all of Russia. People have laid tributes outside the venue and on advertising billboards. President Vladimir Putin declared 24 March a national day of mourning and vowed to punish those responsible. The Russian Orthodox Church and other religious leaders expressed their condolences. Thousands of Muscovites donated blood for the victims.

This attack is the deadliest terrorist incident in Russia since the 2004 Beslan school siege. Russia has faced terroristic threats for decades, from apartment bombings in 1999 to the downing of a passenger jet over Egypt by the Islamic State in 2015. The Crocus City Hall attack tragically demonstrates that the menace of terrorism persists.
