Nicaragua condemned terrorist attacks against Russia

Managua, June 24 (Prensa Latina) The Government of Nicaragua today condemned the terrorist attacks carried out this weekend in several areas of Russia and described them as criminal.

By emphatically repudiating these events that represent more violence and pain for so many Families, we also express our condolences and solidarity with you and your people, the Nicaraguan Executive highlighted in a letter sent to the Russian President, Vladimir Putin.

The text added that Nicaragua is sure that the Russian people and government fight accurate battles and build victories against the most serious threats that loom against the world and the human community.

“We greet you with confidence and hope in the power of peace,” underlined the message signed by President Daniel Ortega and Vice President Rosario Murillo.

This weekend several areas of Russia were the target of attacks described as terrorist.

On Sunday, Ukrainian forces attacked Sevastopol using five American Atacms rockets fitted with cluster munitions, of which four were intercepted by Russian air defense.

The mid-air destruction of the 5th Atacms caused numerous civilian casualties. According to the latest data, four people lost their lives, including two children, while 153 others were injured.

The spokesperson for the Russian Foreign Ministry, María Zajárova, assured this Monday that all those involved in the deadly Ukrainian attack against the port city of Sevastopol, on the Crimean peninsula, will be punished.

Other reports indicated that on Sunday, the priest of the Russian Orthodox church in Derbent, Father Nikolai, and a guard at a temple in Makhachkala were killed.

Authorities stated that a checkpoint, two churches and a synagogue were attacked in Makhachkala and Derbent.

The head of the Press Service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Daguestan, Gayana Gariyeva, reported that as a result of terrorist actions in Makhachkala, six law enforcement officers were killed and 12 others were injured.
