We were shocked to learn about barbarous terrorist attack in Minsk metro that killed twelve people and wounded more than a hundred, ordinary workers, students, citizens and guests of Belarus capital. The explosion was obviously planned to get maximal damage to inspire fear and panic among the population.
Please, convey our strong sincere condolences to those affected by the attack and members of their families. We absolutely denounce this terrorist act and hope that those behind it will be found and brought to justice in the nearest future.
We mourn today with you and the people of Belarus.
