Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and President János Áder have sent condolences to Russian President Vladimir Putin over the explosion in the St Petersburg metro on Monday.
“Such violent and inexplicable attacks cause every nation great pain, but at the same time they do not diminish, and cannot diminish, our common commitment to fighting terrorism,” the prime minister wrote in a letter.
PM Orbán assured Putin of the support of Hungary and the Hungarian people “in these difficult hours”.
“I share with my compatriots the pain of the victims’ families and I wish the injured the swiftest possible recovery,” the letter said.
In his letter, President Áder conveyed the sympathy of Hungarians to the families of nine people who died earlier in the day.
