Oh sure, a few bombs, a carjacking, some grenade ping pong, and a shootout and you run to the airport.

Up till this year, I'd have said anywhere west of the Berkshires or south of Martha's Vinyard.

From near Chechnya apparently or that is what they are saying.
Sad to hear that they managed to kill someone again, the police officer

They killed an 8 year old, a 23 year old and a 29 year old and 100 more lost body parts. I'm sure another cop makes a difference.

Any idea what the motive could be? I thought the Russians were mates - or at least not openly hostile.

They were here legally for years, and one was going to an expensive school on scholarship in 2011.

Al-q was reported to be recruiting in Russia for more "white" terrorists that would blend better in the us.

If the reports are right, they are Chechens in origin. Unhappy nationalists who thought the US was ignoring Russian aggression in Chechniya, or just angry alienated guys, or something else. It remains to be seen.
