Condolences to President of Syria Bashar Assad following the terrorist attacks in Latakia and Tartus

May 23, 2016

Vladimir Putin sent a message of condolences to President of Syria Bashar Assad following the death of numerous civilians in a series of terrorist attacks in the provinces of Latakia and Tartus.

Mr Putin stressed that this tragedy was new evidence of the barbaric and inhuman essence of the terrorist groups that unleashed a bloody war against the Syrian people.

The President confirmed his readiness to continue cooperating with his Syrian partners to combat the terrorist threat, and expressed confidence that the criminals whose hands are stained with the blood of these innocent victims would receive their just punishment.

Mr Putin passed on his sincere sympathy to the victims’ families and wished a swift recovery to all who were injured.
