In an emotional posting on social media, Zubeidat Tsarnaev, the mother of convicted terrorist Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, angrily said that her son was innocent and that America would be punished for imprisoning him.
Despite the fact that her son confessed to plotting and carrying out the Boston Marathon bombings in 2012 along with his brother Tamerlan, Tsarnaev, who currently lives in Dagestan, insisted that her sons were being preyed upon by America for protecting Muslims throughout the world. (She’s claimed that her sons were set up ever since the bombing occurred.)
“May god bless those who helped my son,” she wrote to a support group on the Russian social media VKontakte, according to Vocativ. “The terrorists are the Americans and everyone knows it. My son is the best of the best.”
Vocativ then asked her to confirm her identity, which she did — and sent them a long message:

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who executed the Marathon bombings with his brother, was found guilty of 30 counts of murder, conspiracy, and deadly use of a weapon of mass destruction. His sentencing is scheduled for this week, and the focus now turns to whether he will be executed or serve life in prison.
