Analyzing the attack, some of Russian analytics have noted some parallels between it and terrorist attacks of the beginning of 2000's, that preceded preceded Putin's coming to power. The Kremlin's actions have always been marked with brutish straightforwardness and cynicism. There is a regularity in Russia: terrorist attacks, committed under strange circumstances or annexations of foreign territories have always been a reaction to anti-government demonstrations or the fall of ratings of ruling forces. Now the Kremlin has faced new bunch of troubles - strikes of truckers against new Inadequate taxes, journalist investigations, corruption scandals and recent rallies against corrupt authorities all over the country. Some analysts suggest the incident has some relation to the upcoming presidential elections in Russia, that are planned on March of 2018. And the ruling elites following the same win-win line, creating an image of a threat and further struggle with it.
