MOSCOW, December 30. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has expressed deep condolences to President of Indonesia Joko Widodo over the death of passengers and crew members of the crashed AirAsia airliner, the Kremlin official website said on Tuesday.
“We share the grief of those who lost their near and dear in this catastrophe,” Putin noted.
An AirAsia airplane with 162 passengers and crew members onboard disappeared from radars last Sunday some 40 minutes after it had took off from Indonesia for Singapore. The plane crashed near the Island of Kalimantan (Borneo).
