MOSCOW, July 26. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has conveyed his condolences to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe over a fatal stabbing spree at a disabled care facility in Sagamihara where a former worker killed 19 and seriously injured another 20 patients.
"The crime committed against defenseless disabled persons shocks by its cruelty and cynicism," the Russian leader said in a telegram of condolences.
Putin conveyed the words of compassion and support for the families of the stabbing spree victims and also wished all those who had suffered from the knife attacker their quickest recovery.
According to preliminary data, 26-year-old Satoshi Uematsu, the former employee of the disabled care home in Sagamihara in Kanagawa prefecture neighboring Tokyo, burst into the facility on the night of July 25, stabbing at least 19 patients to death and seriously wounding another 20.
The stabbing spree victims were aged 18-70 and included 9 men and ten women. The disabled patients wounded in the knife attack were delivered to several Tokyo hospitals. Doctors say some of them are in an unconscious condition.
