Russia’s most wanted terrorist, Doku Umarov, has claimed he was the mastermind behind January’s bombing at Domodedovo Airport, which took the lives of 36 people and injured more than 180.
He sees all Western countries as enemies of Muslims and has been proven to have links to Al-Qaeda.
In a video posted online, Mr Umarov said the attack was a response to “Russian crimes in the Caucasus”.
Appearing alone, dressed in combat fatigues, Mr Umarov speaks to the camera: “This special operation was carried out on my orders and, God willing, special operations like it will continue to be carried out.”
He goes on to argue that Muslims are under attack all over the world, talking at length about the situation in Sudan, and condemns “Zionist and Christian regimes led by Israel and America”.
