Czech Foreign Ministry Condemns Terrorist Attack in Moscow

The Czech Foreign Ministry has condemned the terrorist attack in Krasnogorsk, near Moscow, in which 140 people were killed and more than 100 injured.

“The Czech Republic condemns the terrorist attack near Moscow. The attack on the civilian population is unacceptable. Our condolences to the families of the victims,” the ministry said on social networks.

Words of condemnation have also come from the Czech Interior Ministry. “A terrorist attack on defenseless civilians is unjustifiable under any circumstances. My condolences to the families and loved ones of all the victims of today’s shocking violence in Krasnogorsk,” Interior Minister Vít Rakušan wrote on the X network shortly after the news broke.

What happened

Gunmen in combat fatigues opened fire and detonated explosives at Moscow’s Crocus City Hall killing at least 140 people and injuring 100 in a brazen attack claimed by the ISIL (ISIS) group.

At least five camouflage-clad gunmen with automatic weapons burst into the packed concert hall in the Russian capital’s western suburbs on Friday night as the audience was gathering to watch the veteran rock band Picnic, shooting into the crowd and setting off explosives that started a massive fire.

ISIL, the hardline group that once sought control over Iraq and Syria, claimed responsibility for the attack on its Telegram channel, saying the gunmen had escaped. It was not possible to independently verify the claim.

On Saturday, a spokesperson for Russia’s Investigative Committee said it was too early to say anything about the fate of the attackers, state news agency RIA reported.

The concert hall, one of the most popular in Moscow, can hold some 6,200 people.
