Who was the target then?

Here's some interesting information (in Russian). According to the minister of Chechen security, Rudnik Dudaev, Kadirov's presence at the stadium was not planned. In fact, Kadirov was scheduled to officate a military parade at the "Severni" airport (May 9th is the Victory day, in Russa.).

According to the same article, Dudaev is speculating that the explosive device was installed well in advance in case a high profile official visited there. In fact, NTV is reporting that preparations for the May 9th celebrations at the stadium began three months ago and the explosive device was installed inside concrete... Also, they have found a second explosive device at the stadium which did not go off. That second one would've caused massive casualties among regular civilians.
I guess the terrorists got "lucky".
