MOSCOW, January 9. /TASS/. Dozens of people have congregated at the French Embassy in Moscow to express support and solidarity with the French people in the aftermath of the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris on Wednesday.
The action was initiated by some of Russia’s youth organizations. Dozens of young people have brought flowers to the embassy. They carry placards reading “Stop Shooting!” “We Will not Let Journalists be Killed all Over the World”, and “Nothing Excuses an Act of Terrorism”. The action proceeds in full silence.
Plans to hold such an action had been “actively discussed in social networks,” the head of the Russian Federal Agency for Youth Affairs Sergey Pospelov said.
“Young people are outraged by rampant terror, and there have been calls for supporting young journalists and the freedom of speech,” Pospelov told TASS.
On Wednesday morning, masked gunmen targeted an office of the Paris-based satirical Charlie Hebdo magazine, which earlier published caricature images of the Prophet Muhammed. As a result the shooting, 12 people were killed, including 10 staff members and two policemen. Another 11 people were wounded. This is the deadliest attack in France in half a century.
