Russia’s war at home

Dagestan church

At least 20 people – including police officers, a priest and a security guard have been killed in Russia’s North Caucasus republic of Dagestan after suspected terrorists attacked 2 churches and 2 synagogues on Sunday. Reports say 6 attackers are dead, and police are continuing to hunt for others. No one has claimed responsibility for this latest “terrorist attack”, which is reminiscent of the Islamic State shooting at Moscow’s Crocus city hall 3 months ago. Dagestan Governor Sergei Melikov declared 3 days of mourning following the “day of tragedy”. Meanwhile, Russia has blamed the US and said there will be “consequences” for a Ukrainian missile strike on Sevastopol in Russian-occupied Crimea, which officials say killed 4 people and injured 150 more who were hit by debris on a beach. Russia says the struck-down missile was supplied by the US.
