From the Ministry of foreign Affairs we also received a number of messages of condolence. Behind me is a clear indication of how sorry for ordinary Russian citizens.
Terrorism is a global threat, so deal with it must also the global means. In these moments of special importance is the international solidarity. Spain has always expressed its solidarity with those countries in which the attacks occurred, including with Russia. We want to thank those who expressed to us their solidarity. Unfortunately, we have to admit that the experience of the fight against terrorism in Spain is very long and big. But it also shows that terrorism can be fought with success. And we hope that we will continue this successful experience in the fight against terrorism, and we will help other countries, including Russia”.
