ANKARA, June 29. /TASS/. One Russian national received a leg injury in a terrorist attack on the Ataturk Airport in Istanbul, Russia’s consulate-general in the Turkish city told TASS on Wednesday.
The man’s name is Alexander Lubnin. "His condition is stable, there is no threat," a staff member of the diplomatic mission said, adding that the Russian remains in hospital and continues receiving medical assistance.
The consulate-general has not been informed if any other Russians have been injured, the diplomat said.
Three suicide bombers blew themselves up late on Tuesday at the international terminal of Turkey’s biggest airport, killing at least 36 people and wounding 147 others. Unofficial reports say the death toll has reached 50.
The attackers arrived at the terminal in a taxi, opened fire from automatic guns on people and later set off the explosives. One of the terrorists had been wounded before the blast but he still managed to blow himself up.
Turkey’s Prime Minister Binali Yildirim who visited the blasts scene said the terrorist attack could have been carried out by the members of the Islamic State group.
The airport continues operation. The blasts scene has been cordoned off and an investigation is ongoing.
