US authorities suspect that Zubeidat Tsarnaeva, mother of Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, could have incited the eldest son to become the adherent of "radical Islam", report western media referring to the statement of Senator Charles Ruppersberger.
"She is a person of interest that we're looking at to see if she helped radicalize her son, or had contacts with other people or other terrorist groups", said Sen. Ruppersberger.
The Western media quoting the uncle of the brothers Ruslan Tsarni reported that Tamerlan had been allegedly strongly influenced by a man named Misha, who preached Islam to him. Zubeidat Tsarnaeva encouraged their meetings.
Meanwhile, Western media report that the name of Zubeidat Tsarnaeva was included in the Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment (TIDE) a year and a half ago.
If to believe the Western media, the Russian FSB/KGB warned the US at in the end of 2011 of "her possible links with extremists".
Strangely, however, FSB-suspected Zubeidat Tsarnaeva lives without any problems in Russian and FSB does not bother at it.
In turn, Russian media reported that the parents of the Tsarnaev brothers on Friday drove from Dagestan to Moscow to continue heading for the US for a meeting with his son.
"We have already gone to Moscow. Upon arrival we will be met", said Mrs. Zubeidat.
In addition, she reported that her husband's health had deteriorated. "Because of the events, my husband's health deteriorated. He is in critical condition", she said.
Tsarnaeva also suggested that her son Dzhokhar is no longer alive. "We are going to Moscow, and then to the US, but I think my Dzhokhar is no longer alive, and they are just hiding it", she said.
In turn, earlier on Friday, CNN reported that the parents of the Tsarnaev brothers left Dagestan, where they lived, and moved to another region of Russia, while the father postponed the trip to the US because of health problems.
According to the Fox News, citing the statement of Zubeidat Tsarnaeva, her husband Anzor Tsarnaev is to be hospitalized upon arrival in Moscow.
