Manyurov killed one FSB employee outright and wounded five other people outside the agency’s main building, the former headquarters of the Soviet-era KGB, on Thursday evening, before he was himself shot dead.

“We live in such times, and not just us but all governments in the world, when unfortunately nobody is immune from any manifestations of madness with tragic consequences,” said Peskov.
