Russia observed a day of mourning Sunday, two days after a deadly attack at a suburban Moscow concert hall that killed more than 137 people, including three children, and injured over 180.

Rescue teams continue to scour the scorched building for survivors as some families still agonize over the fate of their loved ones. Hundreds of people stood in line in Moscow to donate blood and plasma, Russia’s health ministry said.

The attack Friday was the deadliest on Russian soil since the 2004 Beslan school siege, when Islamist militants took more than 1,000 people, including hundreds of children, hostage.

Friday’s attack has been claimed by the Islamic State terror group.

"They tried to hide and moved towards Ukraine, where, according to preliminary data, a window was prepared for them on the Ukrainian side to cross the state border," Putin said.

Russia's Federal Security Service (FSB) claimed the gunmen had contacts in Ukraine and were captured near the border.

In his Saturday evening address Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy dismissed Putin’s claim that Ukraine had been involved.

"Putin and the other scum are just trying to blame it on someone else," he said.

"ISIS bears sole responsibility for this attack. There was no Ukrainian involvement whatsoever," said White House on Sunday.

In video footage published by Russian media and Telegram channels with close ties to the Kremlin, one of the arrested suspects said he was offered money to carry out the attack.

Another suspect was shown answering questions through a Tajik translator.

In a phone call with Putin Sunday, Tajik President Emomali Rahmon condemned the Moscow concert hall attack, amid allegations the gunmen were Tajik citizens, The Moscow Times reports.

The Islamic State (IS) group is active in Tajikistan. The Central Asian nation shares a border with Afghanistan.

The Kremlin said Sunday that Putin and Rahmon have agreed to "intensify" their joint counterterrorism efforts.

Flags were lowered to half-staff in Russia Sunday, while television entertainment and advertising were suspended, according to state news agency RIA Novosti.
