A bomb went off in St. Petersburg. So far 10 are dead and 37 wounded. The cause has not been officially determined yet.
This story hits home for me. I live in St. Petersburg, Russia. I was right next to Sennaya Ploshad’ where the attack happened. But I was above ground and the attack was in the station. From all accounts. a wagon was blown up with a nail bomb. This is consistent with the nail bomb that the Chechen Tsarnaev brothers used in Boston.
This RT livestream has good footage:
A quick rundown.
- There are reports of a second package found on another major station, Vostaniya
- The metro system was shut down
- Multiple bombs suggest planned attack
- Vostaniya and Sennaya are the two largest hubs
Now, Sennaya is in between two immigrant districts. Apraxin Dvor and Sennaya Rinok. These areas have been the subject of controversy as Far-Right groups have targeted them before. The actual Sennaya Square used to absolutely covered in migrant shops, it was cleared entirely up last year by St. Petersburg police. Now, only a small market at Sennaya Rinok right nearby and the larger Apraxin Dvor have a huge Muslim immigrant concentration. They are like little self-contained ghettos.
Speculations so far:
Supporters of Navalny, a liberal opposition figure are claiming that this was a Putin/KGB false-flag attack to pin on their man and raise Putin’s popularity. Needless to say, these people are idiots.
There is speculation that Ukraine could have been involved. The reason for this suspicion is because it wasn’t a suicide attack. But Caucasus terrorists did not often carry-out suicide attacks, that is more consistent with Arab tactics.
Here are some of the reactions that Muslims on Facebook had about news of the attack:
Will Russians “wake up” to the threat of Islamic terror? Strange question. Even the liberals in Russia hate the “churkas” and “hachis”. The country is “woke” enough. Russia also practices collective punishments. If the Caucasus are involved, heads will roll. No attack happens in a vaccum. The elders, the community leaders in the Caucasus would have known what the youth were planning. If they did not prevent it, they will undoubtedly be punished. We will have to keep an eye on what Kadyrov, Putin’s man in the Caucasus, does.
From VK- the Russian Facebook.
I was on the square in front of the station almost immediately after the attack. I took some pics.
Security in St. Petersburg isnt that tight. There are metal detectors, but they can be walked around. The real defense system is the face-control and random checks. I have never gotten checked, but central asians do very often. The fact that one of the bombs was in a fire extinguisher suggests an employee of the station.
Ren TV claims that this guy might have done it.
Some commentators have commented that the reason St. Petersburg was chosen was because Putin was in St. Petersburg. This was to send a message. You bomb us in Syria, we bomb you in St. Petersburg. That’s possible, but would indicate a sophisticated network that could be activated quickly in St. Petersburg. That would be disturbing indeed.
Don’t send empty and meaningless prayers to the people of St. Petersburg. Instead, harden your heart for the fight to come.
I went to the neighboring immigrant district of Apraxin Dvor on a hunch. All I had to do was cross the street to get there from Sennaya. Sure enough, everything was closed down. It was a ghost town. All the migrants decided to play it safe and stay indoors.
As I mentioned earlier, I believe that the proximity of the historic immigrant district to the sennaya station was no coincidence. These streets are usually bustling with central asians. It is a self-contained little world. The emptiness is striking. I saw some drunk Russians pass by and yell at some of the skulking immigrants, but no other disturbance. There is also the alternative theory that Sennaya was relatively close to the St. Petersburg city duma. But I believe that is far-fetched.
Walking home, I wasn’t alone. The whole city had to hoof it as the metro station was shut down. The cafes that usually played music to entice people in instead played newsreels. People gathered to listen or watch if a TV was showing. Most people suspect that Chechens are to blame.
Update: now the official story is that the explosion happened at Technologicheskiy Institut. Its one station away from Sennaya. This is a massive student hub.
These immigrants ghettos need to be removed from the cities they infest. Go be a third worlder in your own country.
The only way to solve this is total war. Complete obliteration.
Set the demographics to zero.
“There is speculation that Ukraine could have been involved. The reason
for this suspicion is because it wasn’t a suicide attack. But Caucasus

This is confusing for a couple reasons particularly for those of us who are not familiar with Russian terms for different people. For one, Chechnya is in the north Caucasus. Would they not be considered Caucasus terrorists? Secondly, Chechnya’s are not arab to my understanding. At best they are said to be a people of mixed race. Frankly there are a lot of chechens who I wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between them and a Russian. Or are you saying it might have been somebody who was neither Chechen or a Ukrainian? Russian multiculturalism is very different from American multiculturalism in that you have very different groups of people that you talk about.
I pray for the day when Russia cleanses her nation of the Muslim menance once and for all. It will not happen now but soon enough. There should not be one mosque or synagogue in Christian nations. Raze them to the ground Russia.
“All the migrants decided to play it safe and stay indoors.”
Of course they fucking did. Sand people living in your metal empire. Fucking flush them out.
Russia is the last country on Earth I would piss off.
If a bunch of goat-humping, wannabe Neo-Ottoman Islamic reformationists want to die a very quick, explosive death while shitting their pants in a cave full of virgin goats, they picked a way to do it.
Wonder why they haven’t bombed Isreal yet hmmmmmmmmmmmmm
Unfortunately I think you greatly over estimate Russia.
In the years immediately after 9/11, once it became apparent to me that the USA was not treating our war with Islam with any seriousness, I was holding out some hope that Russia would be some sort of redoubt for the West. However they have proven to be as feckless as the rest of the Western world.
You do remember the Chechen attack on the school in Beslan Russia in Sept 2004, don’t you?
If the Russians had some response to it it was not very memorable. I was hoping to see the Russians do a “Stalin” on the Chechens; uproot 3/4 of the country and send them to fucking Kamchatka. The Russians did jack-shit. They are no better than we are.
Sad, very sad.
My guess is that PrayersForRussia/StPetersburg isn’t trending anywhere
Never forget the absolute terror of these attacks, this is not a war being waged by men but by animals, the more women and children they can kill the happier they are, they do not fight fair, they cannot even argue for their own values, all they can do is kill defenseless people.
The Chechens are Muslims and could be working with, or for ISIS.
See also the second half of this video, which discusses the Boston Marathon bombing hoax:
You are a hoax, dipshit.
I flagged SLCain’s comment, since it is needlessly abusive. I suspect that he/she is a paid troll, but I can’t prove it, of course. It is the persistence with which he/she attacks me when I make conspiracy-related comments and the vapidity of all his/her other comments that leads me to suspect this.
Perhaps I will flag your comment for being needlessly stupid.
Of course you think I am a paid troll. Everyone who disagrees with you is – they just must be. And yet, you think you are not a paranoid. Interesting.
I attack your comments because they are idiotic. You think everything is a false-flag. This, for example:
You’re a clown, so don’t be surprised when people laugh at you.
It is my practice to not respond to SLCain in general. He/she seems to want to engage targets in endless back-and-forth exchanges of insults. This is something trolls do.
Whereas you engage in spouting foolish idiocy. That is something that foolish idiots do.
By the way, I am a he, not a he/she. Perhaps you are a he/she. I neither know, nor care.
Congrats on being a retard.
More likely, you are the one who is not too bright, given the briefness of your comment.
His comment seemed apt and concise to me. Going on at length, when you have nothing to say but drivel (as you mostly do), is not a virtue.
The Boston Marathon bombing was a hoax. The Tsarnaev brothers were either patsies or co-conspirators. Here a few points by Jim Fetzer, a well-respected conspiracy analyst:
Fetzer? Not sure about him… he went out of his way to slander Dr Judy Wood.. why?
Those two have had disputes, but I am not familiar with an instance in which Fetzer slandered Wood.
She thinks that a directed energy weapon (like a laser or particle beam) was used to bring down the twin towers. Fetzer agrees with her that there were strange phenomena involved in the collapse of the towers (e.g., melted cars), but that directed energy is not the most likely explanation.
“Fetzer agrees with her that there were strange phenomena involved in the
collapse of the towers (e.g., melted cars), but that directed energy is
not the most likely explanation.”
No, the death-ray of Dr. Fu Man Chu is the most likely explanation. At least it is for idiots like you.
Ooo soo, me likeh de fried rrrizzzz! Lol.
Her book is suppressed science.. she spoke in 2012 at the globalbem.com .. Fetzer isn’t helpful.
Speculating at this stage about what the Russian response might be, when there is not yet any official news about who the suspects actually are, might not be the best approach to take, however.
Cue that Para State guy calling this a false flag by Putin.
Para state girl/woman/grandma*
Ha! I got under that hag’s skin on Twitter once, she called me a Nazi Pepe, and from then on, any account I ever had on Twitter was blocked by Louise Mensch even if I never interacted with her.
Actually “SLCain” is being our resident retard today.
I’m guessing that Putin will be handing out some daenk punishment. Let’s hope so.
I wish he’d broadcast it
