Moscow has no data proving or rejecting the information about the possible participation of Russian national in the terrorist attack at Istanbul Ataturk airport, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on June 30. The statement was made after mass media had provided the information that one of the three suicide bombers could have been a native of Russia’s North Caucasus Republic of Chechnya.

“I can’t say that undoubtedly this is the information, which is exchanged, in the first place, among special services,” Peskov said.

The Kremlin spokesman also said that he didn’t hear that “some data, some information was requested about whether this was a Russian national or not”.

“This will, perhaps, become known with time but I don’t have such information,” Peskov said.

Russian Ambassador in Turkey, Andrei Karlov, also said that he has no information, whether there were citizens of the Russian Federation among the perpetrators of the terrorist attack in Istanbul.

“I didn’t receive such information,” Karlov noted.

A native of Russia’s North Caucasus Republic of Chechnya, Ahmed Chatayev, could have been the organizer of the terrorist attack, Yeni Safak newspaper reported, citing Turkish security sources.

According to the DHA news agency, one of the suicide bombers could have been Russian citizen of Chechen origin, Osman Vadinov. Meanwhile, The Guardian reported that the three suicide bombers were a Russian, an Uzbek and a Kyrgyz.

Forty two people, including 13 foreigners, were killed by the suicide bombers attack at the international terminal of Istanbul airport on June 28. Two hundred thirty eight people were wounded. No group claimed responsibility, but the Turkish government suspected the Islamic state (IS).

    If from Chechnya, he will almost most probably be moslem militant trained by the western power elites, most islamist militant groups throughout Chechnya and Dagestan and southern Russian mostly moslem areas will have been trained by the western secret intelligence services over the last few decades for sure.. But that is not new to us…. Turkey is soon to explode and she hopes that entering into the EU will save her.. And it turn, the EU is scampering and battening down the hatches as the great war machine and planned war with Russia has come to a grinding shuddering halt and uniting Turkey into Europe will put some fuel into the gas tank. However.. Not no more it wont lol… Those days are over.. And please join me as I raise my glass to all Good honest, respectful peaceful and loving people of the UK who have struck the beast deep and true, not with wars, or bullets, or bombs, but with the will and the power of the people, with a vote.. However, this vile evil fascist nazi totalitarian enslavement camp called EU still exists and its a long fight to bring this to an end, but an end it will be. And hold that glass high as we assist our European cousins break the chains and shackles and join us all in Freedom, Liberty, Independence and Justice.
