Following the tragic terror attack in Moscow, four suspects were presented before the court, showing signs of severe physical abuse. The suspects, identified as Dalerdzhon Mirzoyev, Saidakrami Rachabalizoda, Shamsidin Fariduni, and Mukhammadsobir Faizov, face charges of terrorism after the incident at Crocus City Hall, which resulted in the loss of at least 139 lives.

The court proceedings have been marred by controversy, as images and reports suggest the suspects were subjected to brutal treatment while in custody. Two of the suspects have reportedly admitted their guilt, although the legitimacy of these confessions is under scrutiny due to their apparent condition during the court appearance.

Amidst the fallout from the attack, Russian authorities have hinted at Ukrainian involvement, a claim that has been met with skepticism and warnings from international observers. Ukrainian officials have categorically denied any connection to the attack, describing the allegations as baseless.

The situation remains tense, with Russia increasing its military actions against Ukrainian cities, launching ballistic missiles from occupied Crimea. This escalation comes as the Kremlin doubles down on its stance, despite the Islamic State claiming responsibility for the Moscow attack.
