MOSCOW, February 9. /TASS/. The Russian Emergencies Minister Vladimir Puchkov has offered assistance to Germany in eliminating the aftermath of the collision between two passenger trains. The ministry’s press service has told TASS that Puchkov had sent a cable to German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere offering help.
"In accordance with the agreement between the governments of Russia and Germany on mutual assistance in case of natural disasters or major accidents we inform you that the Russian Emergencies Ministry is ready to render practical assistance to its German colleagues," the cable said.
Puchkov also expressed condolences over the loss of lives in the crash.
At least four people have been killed and around 100 others injured in the collision between two trains near the town of Bad Aibling in Germany’s Bavaria federal state, a spokesman for Rosenheim city police told TASS earlier on Tuesday.
