Putin Confirms Egypt Plane Crash Due To Bomb Explosion, Offers $50 Million Reward For Info On Terrorists

Tyler Durden's picture

The world may have moved on from the tragic terrorist attack that took place just three weeks ago above Egypt's Sinai peninsula, which killed all 224, but for some inexplicable reason Russia refused to admit what was obvious to most from the first minutes since ISIS released a video clip of the midair explosion: that the crash was the result of a bomb set to go off shortly after take off. But no longer.

Moments ago the Kremlin confirmed for the first time on Tuesday that a bomb did bring down a Russian passenger plane that crashed over the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt on Oct. 31, killing all 224 people on board.

"One can unequivocally say that it was a terrorist act," Alexander Bortnikov, the head of Russia's FSB security service, told a meeting chaired by President Vladimir Putin, according to a transcript published on the Kremlin's web site.

Bortnikov added that during the flight, a homemade device with the power of 1.5 kilograms of TNT was detonated. "As a result, the plane fell apart in the air, which can be explained by the huge scattering of the fuselage parts of the plane."

This not the first time that Russia has faced “barbarous terrorist crimes, more often without apparent causes, outside or domestic, as it was with the explosion at the railway station in Volgograd at the end of 2013.” Bortnikov added: “We haven’t forgotten anything or anyone. The murder of our nationals in Sinai is among the bloodiest crimes in [terms of] the number of casualties.”

Putin also spoke, vowing to find and punish the culprits behind the Sinai plane attack. "Our military work in Syria must not only continue. It must be strengthened in such a way so that the terrorists will understand that retribution is inevitable."

"The murder of our people in Sinai is among the bloodiest crimes in terms of the number of victims. We won’t wipe the tears out of our souls and hearts. This will remain with us forever. But it won’t stop us from finding and punishing the perpetrators."

According to RT, Russia will act in accordance with Article 51 of the UN Charter, which provides for countries’ right to self-defense, Putin said. “Those who attempt to assist criminals should be aware that the consequences of such attempts will be entirely their responsibility,” he added.

Finally, just to make sure Russia gets its blood debt repaid, The Russian Federal Security Service director also announced a reward of $50 million for information on those behind the terror attack on the A321.

And in a parallel development, of which there will soon be many more, Independent reported that Egyptian security forces shot dead 24 Isis militants in central Sinai, 70 km from the crash site of the Russian passenger plane the group claimed it brought down, security sources have said.

Security sources said they killed the militants as they hid inside a cave in a mountainous area and that they arrested eight of them.

Sinai Province, Isis's Egypt branch, is active in North Sinai where two years ago it launched an insurgency and has since killed hundreds of soldiers and policemen. It is rarely active outside that area.

Assuming there were higher powers behind the Russian plane bombing than just a bunch of cave-dwelling a la carte terrorists, those arrested may just be tempted enough by the $50 million award to reveal who the mastermind behind this particular terrorist attack was.

The UK reportedly had intelligence about an attack that it didn't share with Russia. The US and UK stated that it was a terrorist attack within days. Hmmm. Complicity?

Now we know what Obomber was saying to Putin in their little tete-a-tete at the G20 meeting.

Putin: Anything to say about A321?

Putin knows exactly who is behind the bombing of the Russian Plane. Offering a 50 million dollar reward attracts attention globally, with most humanoids wanting to know who won, and what was the answer. Even the USSA media will be forced to cover this story. This is a great way to score very powerful propaganda points against the perpetrators.

nmewn's picture

Ahem, I think someone around here was saying it was either a bomb or structural failure and NOT an ISIS missile...at 36,000ft...and was roundly criticized by fucking retards for it.

(Bows gracefully and walks off the stage...lol)

Many thought the same, it's better though to wait until things can be confirmed. Will any missiles follow that 50,000,000 to the home country of those who place the device ?

This just in: Obama offers $100 million reward for info on terrorists. The prize also comes with a nail gun and instructions on how to put 2 nails in the back of your own head.

Hmm, in my 2. post to this incident weeks ago, I thought the most obvious scenario was a bomb on the plane instigated by ISIS, recieved many downvotes, apparently too obvious and not enough false flags. I guess simple logic is usually right.

This isn't a false flag?

Crap, somebody needs to print an official rule book!

I watch football and hockey.  At the beginning of each match this week there were moments of silence for France.  Then I realized that there had never been any mention of the downed Russian airliner.

No Russian flags.  No Russian anthem.  No mention.

And there are several Russian hockey players in America...

Nobody asked them anything either, eh?

Not surprising, the MFM is 99% Prog dreck who take their orders right from the Dear Leader...who in turn gets his from the cabal...

Don't be so sure LL, I can see this being drowned in a sea of Paris sympathy.

general ambivalent's picture

Yep, Paris was done precisely to draw attention away from the attack on Russia, Russia's rout of ISIS, and the subsequent reveal that ISIS is the USSA. Even the sheep were beginning to figure it out, so something had to be done.

No mention of the ISreali, US and German air exercises happening about 20 miles away at the time o the killing?

Btw, the Bedoins in Sinai make a lot o money rom growing pot to be sold in ISrael. The borders are selectively porous.

FWIW: there's a tiny US military outpost in the Sinai about 10 klics from Iliot. Not much more than a basketballl court and some barracks.

Reminds me of when the U.S. was offering reward money on Alqaeda in Afghanistan and the local bounty hunters would just bring in any old towel head and collect payment.

What did the US offer for Obama - $25 million?

Edit: Oooops Osama, Osama. Geez, I always get these two mixed up for some reason. They must have something in common other than the closeness of their names for me to do that.

I don't believe for a minute that Russia doesn't know that Saudi Arabia did it. 

However I also don't believe that they can simply act on that knowledge. Hence the bounty. It's all part of the theatre. 

datura's picture

well, Putin also spoke about "particular private persons, sponsors of terrorism" and he ordered his intelligence services to hunt down for those "particular persons." When you say "Tel Aviv" or "Saudi Arabia" did it, you are saying nothing, it was not done by nations as a whole. There are particular people, who paid for this and internediated this, perhaps in Saudi Arabia and elsewhere. What if FSB wants to hunt them down? Would it be really so difficult for them to hunt down some particular high-positioned people and get rid of them as an example and to scare the rest? Putin also says:

 “Those who attempt to assist criminals should be aware that the consequences of such attempts will be entirely their responsibility,” so Putin is not just talking about the terrorists themselves, he is talking about those who "assist the terrorists." Why do you think he mentions that?

Does the name 'Soros' ring any bells?

Now that is a guy that really needs some FSB love.

Rhode Island, Ct, and Virginia (and London and Tel Aviv).


Youre welcome.

"Why do you think he mentions that?"

Very likely because he knows that, although such incidents are carried out by individuals, they are usually sponsored by others in "The State", like 9/11 and almost certainly the latest French massacre. And so it probably was with the Russian A321 airliner.

Compartmentalisation is the MO used to prevent leakage in the planning and execution phases.

The Chief's picture


The "asset" that placed the bomb is probably already dead. Next up, his handlers (and his handlers handlers).

God's speed.


If he has the tools to hear Nudleman's phone calls, he likely already knows exactly where to start the crusade.

It'll be slow at first.... A random dude here and there is gunned down in the street (or just goes missing). We won't even bust out the popcorn because we won't know its happening. As time goes on, however, we may get a warm fuzzy feeling as we see a few arch-cocksuckers take swan dives off of really cool buildings (or out of perfectly good airplanes over very busy city centers).

kralizec's picture

Hey Zeus!  That sounded a lot like W's "Axis of Evil" speech after 9/11!

I'll take a wild guess and say this is going to create more extremists.

There just isn't any love any more...

at the end he must go after Sunstein, Wolfowitz, Brezinksi et al if he is consequent.

"I don't believe for a minute that Russia doesn't know that Saudi Arabia did it."

I hope it was the Saudis. Obliteration of a few of their lavish palaces adorned with gold taps and perhaps a few oil infrastructures will bring the gang of fake royal sub-humans to account and solve many problems.

Haha. They can use it as a way to ferret out people who need to be suicided.

So what now? Both Russia and France/NATO are righteously indignant about terrorism from the same group, ISIS. It will be interesting to see how they turn this into WWIII.
