Dmitry Medvedev asserts that Kiev’s allegations are “false” and that the fighters involved in the armed incursions “will be exterminated like rats.”

The Russians, who were interviewed by AFP in Moscow on Tuesday, expressed fears of new attacks.

It is not only Belgorod, but all border regions. The whole Russian nation is wary of the idea that (the bombing) could happen further afield, in Moscow,” said Alexander, a 42-year-old engineer who prefers to keep his name silent.

Sergey Rusakov, a 70-year-old retired industrial engineer, criticizes, “Belgorodians should contemplate, not only lying on their sofas, but scratching their heads and wondering if all is well within the Russian state.”
