Ukraine has branded Russia’s demands as “pointless” and reminded Moscow that an international arrest warrant has been issued against President Putin.

Moscow has been rocked by a recent terror attack on a concert hall in which over 140 people are believed to have died. Though the Islamic State (ISIS) has claimed responsibility and Moscow arrested four Tajik nationals who have reportedly admitted to the attack, President Putin continues to claim a Ukrainian hand behind the attack. Ukraine has denied this charge.

The Islamic State has long threatened to attack Moscow for its support of Syrian President Bashar-al-Assad.
