While most of the Boston area was applauding last week’s conviction of marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, his mother back in Russia was not praising the federal jury’s guilty verdicts on all 30 charges.
Zubeidat Tsarnaeva responded to Wednesday’s decision with a blistering indictment of America posted on the Russian social media websiteVKontakte, the website vocativ.com reports.
“My sons are innocent, as innocent as all those being killed by your country,” she said.
A sampling of Tsarnaeva’s tirade: “I will never forget it. May God bless those who helped my son. The terrorists are the Americans and everyone knows it. My son is the best of the best.”
