March 15, 2019

Vladimir Putin sent Prime Minister of New Zealand Jacinda Ardern a message of condolences in the wake of the tragic terrorist attack in Christchurch.

“This attack on civilians who gathered for prayer is shocking in its violence and cynicism. I hope that every person involved in this crime will sustain a well-deserved punishment,” the message says.

Vladimir Putin stressed that Russians share the grief of those who lost their loved ones and hope for a speedy recovery of those who were injured.
