MOSCOW, 25 March: No country is safe from terrorism, the Kremlin said on Monday when asked whether the attack on the concert was a failure of security agencies to tackle terrorism, which killed 137 people.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said in an address to the nation those responsible will be punished, and so far, 11 people have been arrested, and four of them are being traced to Ukraine.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said it is not appropriate to talk about ISIS claiming responsibility while the investigation is ongoing.

He told reporters that the investigation is continuing, and no concrete conclusion has yet been reached.

When Peskov was asked whether such an attack in the capital, Moscow, is a proof of the failure of the security agencies, he said, “No city in the world is safe from terrorism and our institutions are working day and night to counter-terrorism.”

Peskov, on the other hand, rejected any external assistance and said that our institutions are working on their own, and at the same time, he also refused any comment on intelligence sharing.

US intelligence said it had warned Russia two weeks ago of the possibility of an attack in Moscow but Vladamir Putin didn’t pay attention.
