The audience honored the memory of the victims of the terrorist attack in the Moscow region with a minute of silence.
“We are still receiving various kinds of condolences. I am very grateful to our colleagues, comrades, brothers from the Commonwealth of Independent States, who were the first to respond to our grief, and very grateful to our compatriots who did not hide their tears and feelings and came to us , offered their shoulder, extended their hand,” the ambassador said.
