`Those images are truly horrific and very upsetting to see. Our thoughts are with the victims of this terrible attack,` White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby on May 22.

Mr. Kirby said the US was gathering information about the incident and said there was no sign that the Ukrainian government or Ukrainian citizens were involved in the terrorist attack.

The US Embassy in Russia on March 7 warned of the risk of extreme attacks in Moscow and advised US citizens not to gather in crowded places.

Mykhailo Podolyak, an adviser to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, said Kiev had `no involvement` in the attack.

The Crocus City Hall theater on the outskirts of Moscow caught fire after a shooting on March 22.

The United Nations Security Council strongly condemned the `cowardly and cruel` attack.

Cuba, Venezuela, Germany, France and Italy also strongly criticized the attack and expressed condolences to the victims.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said that the international community `has an obligation to condemn this terrible crime`, adding that Russian authorities are focusing their efforts on saving lives.

`There is a big question as to what basis the US can draw the conclusion that someone is not involved in the tragedy while it is taking place,` Ms. Zakharova said.

On the evening of March 22, a group of gunmen dressed in camouflage opened fire on the crowd attending a Picnic band event at the Crocus City Hall theater in Krasnogorsk, a city adjacent to the west of the Russian capital Moscow.

Witnesses at the scene said that gunmen entered from the main lobby of the building and shot many people at close range.

The self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS) group claimed responsibility for the incident.

Russia’s Investigative Committee said at least 133 people were killed and more than 100 injured, including many children.
