September 14, 2021

Vladimir Putin offered condolences to the family and friends of Hero of Russia Viktor Kazantsev on his passing.

The President’s message reads, in part:

“A true officer and talented military leader, Viktor Kazantsev devoted his life to the defence of the Fatherland, the development of our Armed Forces and the preservation of glorious combat traditions. He made a big contribution to the fight against international terrorism and did a great deal to help the North Caucasus return to peaceful life. He was respected for his high competence, exacting attitude to himself and his subordinates, and commitment to his chosen profession.”
