(Dan Tri) – The Russian Investigative Committee accused the suspects of the Moscow theater attack of trying to flee to Kiev, with the coordination of a character through Telegram.

`After committing the crime, the terrorists got into a car and drove towards the Ukrainian border following the instructions of a coordinator. They should have crossed the border area and gone to Kiev to receive the reward as promised.`

According to the Russian Investigative Committee, the suspects told investigators that `a man using an alias coordinated their activities both during the preparation and after the armed attack on the house.`

The Investigative Committee said it was continuing to `verify the involvement of representatives of Ukrainian special forces in the organization and financing of the terrorist attack` last week in Moscow.

On the evening of March 22, a group of armed people broke into the hall of the Crocus City theater on the outskirts of Moscow.

Moscow’s Basmanny District Court on March 29 arrested a ninth suspect related to the terrorist incident.

Lutfulloi was arrested by law enforcement near the Crocus City theater on March 23.

On March 25, the court arrested Lutfulloi for 15 days for violent behavior and Lutfulloi pleaded guilty.

The Basmanny court had previously approved the arrest of four men believed to have carried out the theater attack, as well as four others accused of assisting terrorist suspects by supplying them.

Although the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS) claimed responsibility for the attack, Russia continued to accuse Ukraine and its Western allies of involvement.

On March 28, the Russian Investigative Committee announced the initial results of the investigation into the suspects in the terrorist attack at the Crocus City theater.

The report states that investigators have collected `important evidence` showing that the suspects received money from Ukraine in the form of virtual currency.

Russia’s Investigative Committee said law enforcement officers had also identified and detained another suspect believed to be involved in financing terrorism, but did not identify him.

Head of the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) Aleksandr Bortnikov accused the US, UK and Ukraine of possibly supporting the suspects in the Moscow terrorist attack.

In early March, the US and a series of European countries advised their citizens to avoid going to crowded gatherings such as music events due to concerns about the risk of an `imminent` terrorist attack.

US officials confirmed that Washington had issued a warning to Russian security agencies.
