KIEV, December 31. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukrainian Foreign Minister Leonid Kozhara has offered his condolences over the twin terrorist attacks in Russia’s southern city of Volgograd.“I am profoundly indignant at the cynicism and cruelty of terrorists in respect of civilians, women and children,” he wrote on Tuesday in the book of condolences at the Russian embassy in Ukraine. “Such act can never be justified. I express my deepest condolences to the families of the people killed in these acts of terror and sincerely wish the soonest recovery to those wounded.”
“Ukraine is mourning together with the Russian people over the people killed in these brutal terrorist acts,” Kozhara told journalists. “We share the pain of those who were hurt as a result of this cruel crime. We extend deep condolences and offer all possible help.”
Two terrorist attacks have been staged in the city of Volgograd over the past few days. On Sunday, a suicide bomber detonated explosives at the entrance to the waiting hall of Volgograd’s central railway station.
On Monday, a suicide bomber blew up a trolleybus in the morning rush hour. According to latest reports, these attacks claimed 34 lives. About 100 people were wounded, of whom 60 are still in hospitals in Volgograd and Moscow.
