MOSCOW, June 29. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has expressed sympathy for the Turkish people in connection with the terrorist attack at Istanbul’s airport.
"We regret and feel sympathy for the victims of the terrorist attack that occurred yesterday," Putin said at the first meeting with Russian and German pupils devoted to the memory of the Great Patriotic War events (1941-1945).
Putin said the projects similar to those in which the pupils participate "create such a climate that does not allow such awful things happen" like the terrorist attack in Turkey.
Three suicide bombers blew themselves up late on Tuesday at the international terminal of Istanbul’s Ataturk airport, killing at least 36 people and wounding 147 others. Unofficial reports say the death toll has reached 50. Turkey’s Prime Minister Binali Yildirim who visited the blasts scene said the terrorist attack could have been carried out by the members of the Islamic State group.
