At least 19 people died in yesterday's series of attacks in the southern Russian province of Dagestan, and five attackers were killed, Russian agencies reported. Gunmen opened fire on a synagogue and two Orthodox churches in Derbent, as well as on a police station in Makhachkala.

The Ministry of Internal Affairs announced that an Orthodox priest was also killed in the terrorist attack, and a synagogue and an Orthodox church were set on fire.

According to news agencies, there was street fighting in Makhachkala, the administrative center of Dagestan, during which the five attackers were killed, and it was reported that civilians were injured.

So far, no organization has claimed responsibility for the attacks.

Dagestan is a predominantly Muslim Russian province on the Caspian Sea.

The terrorist attacks in Sevastopol, Derbent and Makhachkala, carried out during one of the most important Christian holidays, caused a shock throughout Russia, RIA Novosti reports.

"Islamic extremists, Ukrainian militants and foreign intelligence services acted together, carrying out a coordinated attack on the peaceful population of Russia," the Russian agency said.

Official Moscow accused that this terrorist act was preceded by an attack on Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, where five American ATAKMS missiles with cluster warheads were spotted around noon Moscow time, according to the Kremlin.

Russia's Defense Ministry says the United States is responsible for the deadly Ukrainian attack on Sevastopol that killed four people and injured around 120. On the other hand, the head of the Ukrainian intelligence service, Kirill Budanov, stated that Russia will not feel the consequences of the war as long as the fighting is localized in Ukraine, and that therefore the conflict must be transferred to Russian territory.
