Details: The Russian Foreign Ministry has stated that "responsibility for this and other terrorist attacks lies not only with the Ukrainian authorities but also with their Western patrons, primarily the United States".

Russia believes that the lack of reaction from Washington to the explosion of the propagandist's car is "self-incriminating for the American authorities".
