‘Terrorism must be defeated’: Trump offers condolences to Putin over St. Petersburg attack/False Flag?
Russia Today – Staff – April 04, 2017
US President Donald Trump has called Vladimir Putin to express his condolences over the bombing of the St. Petersburg Metro that killed at least 14 people. They agreed that Russia and the US should be fighting terrorism together, the Kremlin said.
Trump has extended “his deep condolences to the relatives and loved ones of those killed as result of a barbaric terrorist act,” Kremlin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, as cited by RIA Novosti.
“The presidents noted that terrorism is the evil against which it is necessary to fight together,” Peskov added. Putin, in turn, thanked his American counterpart for showing solidarity with the Russian people.
In a statement released following the conversation, the White House said that “both President Trump and President Putin agreed that terrorism must be decisively and quickly defeated.”
It went on to note that Trump pledged the “full support” of Washington to Moscow in “responding to the attack and bringing those responsible to justice.”
As the news on the blast broke, Trump was one of the first world leaders to express his sympathies calling the suspected attack “a terrible thing.”
The blast rocked a metro carriage on Monday afternoon as the train was making its way between two central stations, injuring over 50 people. Eleven deaths have been confirmed so far.
Putin was in St. Petersburg at the time of the attack, where he had earlier arrived for the All-Russia People’s Front media forum and to meet with Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko. In the immediate aftermath of the explosion, the Russian president stated that “all variants” were being considered in the investigation, but investigating a terrorist motive has been prioritized.

Hours after an explosion ripped through a train car at a St. Petersburg Metro station, a number of Western mainstream media outlets claimed the suspected terrorist attack might have been a plot to distract Russians away from recent anti-government protests.
With little details known in the aftermath of Monday’s explosion between Sennaya Ploshchad and the Tekhnologichesky Institut metro stations, the BBC suggested in its coverage that the explosion might be an attempt to distract from anti-corruption protests facing the Russian government.
Speaking on air, BBC Moscow correspondent Sarah Rainsford poured fuel on unfounded conspiracy theories when she referenced so called “quick commentary” from unnamed outlets within the “liberal media.”
