MOSCOW, July 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Russians continue bringing flowers to the Embassy of Malaysia in Moscow to remember the victims of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 that crashed in eastern Ukraine on Thursday.
Moscow citizens and visitors place roses, chrysanthemums and carnations outside the embassy. People light candles and bring plush toys.
“I am sorry for people who died. It shocked me yesterday,” Moscow resident Grigory, who is among the mourners, told ITAR-TASS. “I just felt the necessity to do something in order to express my condolences and sympathy. A terrible thing has happened.”
Employees of other countries’ embassies located in the vicinity also paid their respects to the hundreds of people killed.
“We were all shocked by the news,” said an embassy official. “Many children died. Reasons for that are still to determined, but for ordinary people the grief is overwhelming. We mourn together with families of those who died.”
