MOSCOW, October 23. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has offered condolences to France’s President Francois Hollande over the heavy loss of life in a road accident near Libourne, the Kremlin’s press-service said.
Putin expressed sympathy and support for the relatives and dear ones of those who died and wished early recovery to survivors.
The road accident that claimed at least 42 lives occurred early Friday morning in southwestern France. A passenger bus collided with a truck on a narrow local road in Gironde Department. Both vehicles caught fire.
Most of the victims were elderly people, who were going on an excursion to the south of the country. Several others were injured.
The Russian embassy in France has no confirmation yet there were no Russians among the casualties.
