It has been nearly 21 hours since shooters stormed into Crocus City Hall in Moscow, opening fire on innocent people, both adults and children.

So far, reports indicate that at least 93 people lost their lives in the horrific attack, but this number is expected to rise in the coming days.

Around noon in Moscow, authorities managed to detain those involved in the shooting. Just a few hours later, videos from Russia have been leaked, showing the interrogation of, so far, two of the individuals who fired on innocent people.

The media outlet Ria Novosti has shared the videos with the public, and it is in these videos that one of the detainees reveals how much they were paid to carry out the attack.

One of the two says he was contacted about a month ago via Telegram by his 'handlers,' who provided him with weapons and promised him about one million rubles, approximately $10,800. His task was to shoot as many people in Crocus City Hall as possible.

In the same video, he shares his name and date of birth, revealing that he is just 25 years old.

The Russian media has also released a second video, stating that it features the leader of the group. He reportedly speaks only Tajik in the video, which has not yet been translated. However, the Russian media reports that the 'leader' in the video states they were staying at a motel in the Russian town of Dmitrovka, close to the border with Ukraine.

It's crucial to emphasize that while the above has been validated, it naturally cannot be confirmed whether the statements made during the interrogation are indeed accurate.
