MOSCOW, April 18 (Itar-Tass) – Russian President Vladimir Putin offered condolences to his U.S. counterpart Barack Obama over the death of people in the blast, which rocked a chemical plant in the Texas city West.
In the telegram of condolence the Russian president “from myself and from all Russians expressed the support to those people, who lost their near and dear, and wished the soonest recovery to injured people,” the Kremlin press service reported.
According to the preliminary reports, the explosion, which rocked a fertilizer plant in the U.S. city West, Texas, killed from 60 to 70 people, and hundreds of people were injured. The doctors estimated that no less than 40 wounded people are in critical condition.
The blast damaged tens of neighbouring buildings. The U.S. authorities announced the forced evacuation of people from West over the spreading of the toxic agents in the air.
