An unidentified device detonated on a train car in Russia earlier today killing eleven innocent bystanders, and injuring scores of others.
The origin of the package is as of yet unknown, Russian security services are on the scene, and information is currently difficult to come by.
Russian President Vladimir Putin released a pretty relaxed statement for a leader that hangs his hat on domestic order
“The reasons for the explosion are unknown, so it’s too early to talk about it. The investigation will show what happened,”
This is a national tragedy, but before we go blaming this on ISIS, it would be fair based on recent history to follow Putin’s advice, and not rule anything out.
Including the Russian government.
In 1999, during a time of civil unrest amid the chaos of the Chechen war, an entire block of apartment buildings was destroyed, which ended up galvanizing the Russian people under Putin’s rule, and setting the table for him to drain civil liberties within the country.
No plausible explanation was ever given for the attack.
Fast forward to 2017, after 2 consecutive weekends of civil demonstrations that Putin struggled to control, a train is bombed and people died with seemingly no explanation, or suspects.
Like Putin says, we cannot rule anything out because anything is possible in Russia.
The timing of this bombing is very suspicious, Tastie Fish will update this tragic story as it unfolds.
