Vladimir Putin sent a message of condolences to President of the Arab Republic of Egypt Abdel Fattah el-Sisi in connection with the tragic consequences of the terrorist attack on the northern Sinai Peninsula.

“The murder of civilians during a mosque service is an act of striking cruelty and cynicism. This is yet another proof that human morality is absolutely alien to terrorists,” the Russian President said in his message.

Vladimir Putin reaffirmed that Russia is ready to further enhance cooperation with friendly Egypt in the fight against international terrorism.

The Russian President passed on words of sympathy to the victims’ families and friends and wished a speedy recovery to all the injured.
