Russia remains ready for close counterterrorism cooperation with France following the deadly attack in Nice, Putin said in a message to Hollande.

“The cruelty and cynicism of this crime, committed on your National Day, is astonishing. We have again seen that terrorism is absolutely unfamiliar with human morale, its victims are innocent civilians, including women and children,” Putin said, as quoted by the Kremlin press service.

He reaffirmed that Russia is ready for “the closest cooperation with France and other international partners in all areas of counterterrorism” and believes in the need for humanity to unite in this fight.
