Image Explosion at supermarket in St. Petersburg

Russian President Vladimir Putin says Wednesday's explosion at a supermarket in the country's second-largest city was a terrorist attack.

The Investigative Committee qualified the incident in St. Petersburg as an Assault to Murder of two or more people committed in a generally unsafe manner (Article 30, part 2 of Article 105 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation).

A blast at a supermarket in Saint Petersburg, Russia has left several people injured, according to a report by AFP. He went on to note that another attack was thwarted recently, a reference to an alleged series of bombings in St. Petersburg that a Central Intelligence Agency tip helped prevent, according to the Kremlin.

The device, containing 200 grams of explosives went off at a storage area for customers' bags, Russia's Investigative Committee said.

The US now provides about 22 percent of the annual budget, or about $3.3 billion per year, according to PolitiFact. The majority vote in UNGA has proved that USA President Donald Trump's decision was unjust and discriminatory.

A motive has yet to be determined, and no one has come forward to claim responsibility for the attack. In a sign of the severity of the situation, the case was overseen by Russia's National Anti-Terror Committee even though authorities initially opened a probe into attempted murder.

Earlier this month, security forces arrested seven suspected members of an Islamic State (IS) sleeper cell in St. Petersburg who were reportedly preparing a suicide bombing at the city's Kazansky Cathedral.

Putin called the bombing an act of terrorism.

"Don't take any prisoners, liquidate the bandits on the spot", Putin said during remarks at a televised ceremony with veterans of Russia's military campaign in Syria.
