BISHKEK, April 4. /TASS/. Kyrgyzstan is offering all-round assistance to Russia in probing into the terror attack on St. Petersburg’s metro, Kyrgyzstan’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.
"Kyrgyzstan’s security services are offering all-round assistance to Russian law enforcement agencies in investigating this case," the ministry said.
According to official Bishkek, Akabrzhon Dzhalilov, who is suspected of committing this terror attack, is not a Kyrgyz national. "According to our information, Dzhalilov, an ethnic Uzbek, was born on April 1, 1995 in the city of Osh (southern Kyrgyzstan)," the ministry said.
The ministry said that Dzhalilov "has never received a Kyrgyz passport." "In 2011, when he turned 16, he received a Russian passport and has been living in Russia ever since," the ministry said.
A bomb went off at about 14:40 Moscow time on Monday in a metro train car when the train was moving from Tekhnologichesky Institut Station to Sennaya Ploshchad Station in St. Petersburg. According to a source in the law enforcement agencies, the bomb was activated by a suicide bomber. According to the Russian Health Ministry, the blast claimed the lives of 14 people. Forty-nine are in hospitals.
Earlier on Tuesday, the Russian Investigative Committee named the man who exploded the bomb. It was Akbarzhon Dzhalilov, born 1995, who left a bomb on the Ploshchad Vosstaniya.
