MOSCOW, January 8 /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has telephoned French President Francois Hollande to present his condolences to the French leader and the French people over a terrorist attack on the office of the Paris-based weekly Charlie Hebdo, the Kremlin press service reported on Thursday.
“The Russian leader condemned the barbaric action and expressed the hope that its perpetrators would be found and would face condign punishment,” the Kremlin press service went on to say.
Putin asked Francois Hollande to convey a feeling of profound compassion and words of support to the families of the dead and wished the earliest recovery to the injured.
The French president thanked Putin for his manifestation of friendly feelings.
Three unknown gunmen attacked the office of the Paris-based Charlie Hebdo satirical weekly paper that had outraged Muslims by printing caricatures of Prophet Muhammad on Thursday morning.
