MOSCOW, December 26, 1:11 /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian Foreign Ministry condemns the new terrorist attacks in Iraq, which were aimed at destabilizing the situation in the country.
A series of terrorist attacks again hit Baghdad, killing more than 20 people and injuring more than 30. The most powerful blast took place in southern Baghdad near the catholic church of St. John the Baptist, where a religious service was held at the moment to mark Christmas.
Moscow strongly condemns such inhuman crimes and express sincere condolences to the victims' families and sympathy and wishes of soonest recovery to the injured people.
Attempts of extremist groups to destabilize the situation in the country and create strife between various religious groups cause particular concern, the ministry noted.
It is very important to prevent criminal terrorist attacks in Iraq, Syria and other countries of the region against churches, mosques and other religious places. It is necessary to protect followers of Islam, Christianity and all the denominations that have existed in the Middle East for centuries, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
