Hungarian President János Áder on Monday expressed his sympathies to the casualties and families of the victims of an accident at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport, where an aircraft bound for Murmansk burst into flames during a crash landing, killing at least 41 on board.
“I was deeply shaken by news of the disaster claiming so many lives,”
Áder wrote in his telegram to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Sending his condolences in the name of the Hungarian people to the families of the victims, the president said that “our hearts go out to those injured and the passengers suffering the trauma, and wish for a speedy physical and psychological recovery.”
The accident happened when an Aeroflot SSJ-100 passenger plane attempted a crash landing at the Moscow airport on Sunday with 78 people on board.
