MOSCOW, April 16 (Itar-Tass) – Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev offered condolences to people, who were injured in the blasts during the Boston Marathon on Tuesday.
“The terrorist act in Boston is a horrible crime,” Medvedev wrote in his account in the social network Facebook. “It is particularly cynical that the crime was committed during the traditional Boston Marathon, which is a sport holiday, for which people from all over the world, including the Russians, arrive to attend it,” he said. “Only together we can confront those, who commit similar crimes,” the prime minister said with confidence.
“On behalf of the government of the Russian Federation and the whole Russian people I convey the words of sympathy to the citizens of the United States,” he went on to say. “I offer sincere condolences to the near and dear of the casualties of the terrorist act. I wish the soonest recovery to wounded people. We are together with you,” the Russian premier said.
A dreadful terrorist act killed three people, including an eight-old child. Over 140 people were injured, at least tens of them were amputated their extremities.
On Monday afternoon, the explosions rocked not far from the finish line of a famous Boston Marathon, which is the oldest and one of the most prestigious athletic races in the world. The police reported that two strong homemade explosive devices were detonated. It is not ruled out that the bombs were hidden in the recycle bins.
