    The Russians are saying this may have been an act of terrorism, which sounds to me like a pretty good bet, but no one has any details just yet as to who made the attack or why.

    It looks like terrorist can still strike in strongly control Communist countries. Perhaps Russia should have kept out of the Middle East.

    update:

    Revealed: The Name and Face of the St. Petersburg Subway Bomber



    His motives/ associations are still being investigated. He's not saying anything. He was a suicide bomber.

    France has been involved in the Middle East for centuries. It had colonies like Algeria which did great harm to the locals.s. It was involved with Britain in given part of Palestine to Israel. It still has the most anti Muslim legislation of any European country. It was first to ban the burka and allow anti Mohamad cartoons.
    That why it is attacked by Muslims.
