China With Russia

Two weeks before the deadliest attack in Russia in years, US intelligence had publicly and privately advised President Vladimir Putin’s government that “extremists” had “imminent plans” for a terrorist attack targeting public gatherings.

The US shared those advance intelligence indications under a tenet of the US intelligence community called the “duty to warn”. Putin responded by calling them “provocative statements” from the West. 2 weeks later, Putin was proven wrong. The attack on Crocus City Hall occurred. More than 130 people died. It could have been prevented but Putin quickly blamed Ukraine and threatened WMD even after Afghanistan based ISIS had claimed responsibility.
