Victims of terrorist attacks have no nationality, and there is no excuse for the perpetrators of terrorism. Terrorism is devoid of any morality and it knows no borders. It is ruthless, devoid of logic and sense, and only by unifying, can we counteract this evil.

On behalf of the political opposition, of all sensible people in our country, on behalf of those citizens who have maintained their human dignity in difficult circumstances, as well as on my own behalf, I want to express my deepest condolences to the families and friends of the victims of the heinous terrorist attack in Saint Petersburg, as well as words of support to all those injured.

We ask God to rest the souls of the victims of this tragedy and to give strength to all those who continue to love them and for whom the deceased will always remain an integral part of their lives.
