Russian officials have blamed Britain for Friday's terrorist attack on the Crocus City Hall, despite ISIS claiming responsibility for the massacre. Russian expert Keir Giles joins Iain Dale to explain how on earth Russia has reached this conclusion. Alexander Bortnikov, the head of the Federal Security Service, said on Tuesday that the UK, US and Ukraine were behind the attacks on Moscow which killed 139 people on Friday. It's the latest attempt by Russia to link the jihadist massacre to the West, with Moscow laying the blame on Western nations after three terrorists opened fire on the venue, located outside of Moscow. It comes as the Russian security director admitted that investigators had not yet established who ordered the attack, but asserted the West and Ukraine were directly involved. The claims come despite Islamic terrorists taking responsibility for the attack. The UK, US and Ukraine continue to deny any involvement.
