O Russia’s Investigative Committee said this Thursday that it had discovered evidence that those responsible for the attack on a concert hall in Moscow had links to “Ukrainian nationalists”.

“Investigators have information confirming that the perpetrators of the attack received large sums of money and cryptocurrencies from Ukraine, which were used in the preparation of this crime”explained those responsible.

The attack, which took place on Friday night, was claimed by the ‘jihadist’ organization Islamic State, but Russian authorities have insisted on the Ukrainian trail.

According to the most recent report, the attack, which took place last week at Crocus City Hall, in Moscow, killed at least 143 people.

“Working with the detained terrorists, examining the technical devices seized from them and analyzing information about financial transactions made it possible to obtain evidence of their links with Ukrainian nationalists”the committee further detailed.

Russian investigators also announced that a new suspect “involved in the terrorist financing system has been identified and detained.”

They added that they will request the court to prevent the suspect from being detained, according to the Spanish agency EFE.

The court has already placed eight suspects involved in the attack in pre-trial detention, including the four accused of carrying out the attack. The suspects were accused of terrorism and could be sentenced to life in prison.
