Condolences on the terror attack in Nice
I express my deepest condolences to the people of France in connection with the barbarian terror attack in Nice.
Even after all the previous attacks I was struck by the cynicism and cruelty of the terrorists, who raced into the crowd, ran over people and shot everyone, including children, who came to watch the fireworks in the course of the Bastille Day celebrations. I am sure that one cannot break down and intimidate the people of France.
The European understanding of freedom, which started from the French Enlightenment Age in many respects, is a greatest value of our common culture. This is the only thing we can oppose to barbarism, wildness, aggressiveness, darkness.
Our thoughts are with the French people.
