His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia expressed his condolences over the terrorist attack in Istanbul. On June 28, two blasts hit Istanbul’s international airport. According to the latest reports, 41 people were killed and 239 injured.
The message sent by His Holiness Patriarch Kirill to the President of the Republic of Turkey, Mr. Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, says in particular, “The committed atrocity is unjustifiable.
