MOSCOW, February 29. /TASS/. Russia resolutely condemns the recent terrorist attacks on the outskirts of Baghdad and urges uncompromising fight against terrorism, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in comments on the Sunday attacks killing and injuring dozens of civilians.
"Moscow resolutely condemns this barbarous act. We express condolences to the families of the dead and wish an early recovery to the injured," the ministry’s commentary said.
"Such terrorist sorties vividly demonstrate an inhumane aspect of violent radicals, disguising themselves under religious slogans," the ministry said.
"Of special concern is the fact that extremists’ action is aimed at further inciting inter-confessional hatred in Iraq, at undermining efforts towards national accord in this long-suffering country," it said.
"The terrorist attacks in Baghdad once again confirm a need for an uncompromising fight against trans-national terrorist groups, be it in Iraq, Syria or other counties of the Middle East and North Africa," the ministry said.
Dozens of civilians, including women and children, were killed or wounded in the Shiite district of Sadr City, in eastern Baghdad, in two blasts caused by two suicide bombers in a crowded market.
