“Whose interests are served by the Paris attacks?”

“Whose interests are served by the Paris attacks?”

Mychailo Wynnyckyj, Associate Professor of the Department of Sociology and Kyiv-Mohyla Business School, Director of the Doctoral School, National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy, wrote an interesting op-ed about possible Russian trace in Paris bombing theory.

The question "whose interests are served by the Paris attacks?” was raised by Channel 5 journalist Vitaliy Haydukevych. 

Mychailo wrote: "Having watched a video of Putin’s performance at the Valdai Discussion Club 3 weeks ago, having then observed the extremely muted reaction to the bombing of Metrojet Flight 9268 over the Sinai Desert a mere 9 days later, and now having watched the Kremlin’s rapid response to the IS terrorist attacks on Paris, I am beginning to give some credence to the conspiracy theorists who would find a trace of the Russian President behind every recent incident of violence on or near the European continent. In Sochi, Putin ominously declared: “There’s one thing I learned in my youth on the streets of Leningrad: if a fight is unavoidable, one should hit first.” Is this exactly what he has been doing lately?"
