Putin expresses condolences to Hollande due to Nice attack
Russian President Vladimir Putin has expressed his condolences to the French President Francois Hollande after Thursday's attack in Nice, the Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
"President Putin sent a telegram to his French counterpart President Hollande, in which he expressed deep condolences after this inhumane, barbaric terrorist attack," Sputnik cited Peskov as saying.
"Brutality and cynicism of this crime committed on French National Day are shocking. We have once again seen that human morals are absolutely foreign to terrorism - its victims are innocent civilians, including women and children," RBTH cited him as saying.
"The Russian president confirmed that Russia is ready for closest cooperation with France and other international partners in all spheres of anti-terrorist activities," the Kremlin added.
