Briefing by Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova, Moscow, October 25, 2018

Good afternoon,

I think you remember how the last briefing began. I’d be remiss not to revisit that
subject today and not to express my sincere gratitude to everyone who responded
to our national tragedy at the Kerch Polytechnic College.

We have received vast amounts of condolences, words of support and genuine and sincere sympathy for our country, the bereaved families and the wounded.

Once again, I would like to express my gratitude to ordinary citizens, representatives of the ruling circles, journalists, and international organisations.

Thanks for your sincere words of support.
