LONDON, April 4. /TASS/. British Prime Minister Theresa May has conveyed her condolences to Russian President Vladimir Putin over the terrorist attack that rocked the St. Petersburg metro on Monday.
"This was a horrific attack in St. Petersburg. I have written to President Putin to give him my condolences and also those of the British people for this absolutely appalling attack," May told Sky News while on a visit to Jordan. "Of course our thoughts must be with the victims and their friends and families. But this shows the terrible terrorist threat that we are all facing," the British prime minister added.
"I am very clear, as the people of the United Kingdom were after the attack in London, that we will prevail," May stressed. "The terrorists will not win. Our values will prevail," she said.
The St. Petersburg metro blast came less than two weeks after a terrorist attack in London. On March 22, 52-year-old Khalid Masood ploughed his car into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge, killing three people. After that he left his car and stabbed a police officer before being shot.
On the afternoon of April 3, an unidentified device exploded in a metro car between Tekhnologichesky Institut station and Sennaya Ploshchad stations in Russia’s St. Petersburg. The country’s Investigative Committee has indicated the event as a terrorist attack, however, other scenarios are also under consideration. The blast killed 14 people while more than 50 were injured.
