MOSCOW, July 6. /TASS/. Possible involvement of Russian citizens in recent terrorist attacks at Istanbul airport may be the consequence of the fact that Turkey ignored information received from Moscow, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Wednesday.
Peskov noted that there is no reliable information yet about participation of Russian citizens in organization of terrorist attacks in Istanbul.
"Over the last several years, Russia sent information - via channels of different services, including special services - to Turkish colleagues and to European colleagues that persons suspected of involvement in terrorism, persons suspected of planning to join different terrorist groups, find shelter on the territory of Turkey and of several other European countries," he explained.
"Such signals from the Russian side often did not receive due attention or any kind of reaction from our colleagues. Unfortunately, this (terrorist attack in Istanbul) may be the consequence of ignoring it," he added.
"Russia has consistently supported and counties to support maximum active cooperation in the sphere of (fighting) terrorism. We are all threatened by it (terrorism), and no country can fight against terrorism alone," Peskov concluded.
