On January 26, 2011, U.S. Ambassador to Russia John Beyrle paid his respects to the victims of the bomb attack at Moscow's Domodedovo airport. Ambassador Beyrle said, "We are grieving together with the families that lost their loved ones. And we're expressing our solidarity with the Russian people and the Russian government, that there can be no refuge for monsters who are capable of carrying out an attack like this, against us."
Earlier in the week, President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton condemned the attack. Secretary Clinton said, "We stand with the people of Russia in this moment of sorrow and we offer our deepest sympathy to the families and loved ones of those injured and killed. The United States condemns terrorism and all forms of violence against the innocent, wherever it occurs. We stand with the victims of these crimes and we will continue to work with the international community to combat violent extremism that threatens peace-loving people everywhere."Related Entry:President Obama, Secretary Clinton Condemn Attack at Moscow's Domodedovo Airport
