MOSCOW, June 29. /TASS/. Turkey has expressed gratitude to the citizens of Russia for their support after deadly blasts at Istanbul’s airport, the country’s embassy told TASS on Wednesday.
"Last night an awful terrorist attack occurred in Istanbul in which dozens of people died and hundreds of others were wounded. This is a great pain for the people of Turkey and not only them as people from all countries use this airport. This is a common tragedy," the embassy stressed.
"Today our Russian friends came to the embassy with flowers to share our pain," it said. Earlier in the day, Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed condolences to the Turkish people.
"We thank the Russians and the country’s leadership who backed the Turkish people on this difficult day and shared our pain with us," the embassy said.
Three suicide bombers blew themselves up late on Tuesday at the international terminal of Istanbul’s Ataturk airport. More than 40 people were killed and another 239 people were injured, the city governor’s office said. Turkey’s authorities have declared a national mourning after the terrorist attack.
