MOSCOW, July. /TASS/. One Russian citizens and one Russian expatriate were killed in a terrorist attack in France’s Nice, two more Russian nationals are reported missing, the Russian foreign ministry said on Friday citing preliminary information.
Earlier on Friday, Russia’s Consul General in Marseille Sergei Molchanov told TASS some of Russian-speakers who were wounded in the attack are not Russian citizens.
"According to eyewitnesses, Russian citizen Viktoria Savchenko (born 1995) and Russian expatriate Natalia Otto may be among those killed," the ministry said. "Two more Russians are reported missing as of now. Russian nationals Poliva Serebryannikova (born 1995) and Galina Sokolova (born 1956) are in hospitals in Monaco and Nice."
The Russian consulate general in Marseille "maintains contact with the authorities and relatives of the attack victims and continues to check the above data and find out whereabouts of other Russian citizens who might have been hurt in the tragedy in Nice."
Meanwhile, Belgium’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Didier Reynders said that among the victims of the terrorist attack there might be a Belgian citizen of the Russian origin and a woman of Kazakhstan’s origin, both residing in Antwerp.
On the evening of July 14, thousands of visitors had been returning from a festive firework display for Bastille Day on Nice’s Promenade des Anglais, when a truck rammed into the crowd at full speed.
