President Al-Assad links Moscow attack to neo-Nazis’ defeat

Damascus, Mar 23 (Prensa Latina) Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad condemned on Saturday the terrorist attack on the outskirts of Moscow, and linked it to the defeats suffered by Kiev and its Western sponsors.

“This heinous act is directly related to the heavy defeats suffered by the neo-Nazis and their supporters on the military operation in Donbass,” Al-Assad said in a message sent to his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.

“We express our condolences and deep sorrow for deaths and injured, and reaffirm our deepest sympathy and solidarity with the affected families,” the Syrian leader stated.

Al-Assad asserted that such terrorist and cowardly acts will not be able to divert the Russian people from their principles and determination to preserve their sovereignty and independence.

The Syrian head of State further granted Syria’s willingness to continue to work alongside Russia in the joint crackdown on terrorism and cross-border extremism.

On Friday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemned in the strongest terms the terrorist attack on the Crocus City concert hall, describing it as brutal and inhumane.

It considered in a statement that such cowardly terrorist act is committed after significant achievements made by the friendly Russian people, in particular on the special military operation and the recent elections, which showed that the Russian people support their army and its leadership.

Several terrorists in camouflage clothes and armed with rifles broke into the premises of the Crocus City Hall concert hall, located in the Moscow province, where a gunfight broke out, so that the terrorists set fire to the auditorium chairs, from where the flames spread over almost the entire place.

According to the Russian Investigative Committee, there were over 115 deaths from the aggression while several people were captured among them four terrorists involved in the attack.
