Vladimir Putin has still not visited the families of the victims or the many injured. The Russian president did not visit the scene of the attack either.

The Kremlin felt forced to explain the absence of a public tribute paid by the Russian president. According to the latest report from Russian rescuers, at least 144 people were killed and 551 injured during this attack claimed by the jihadist group Islamic State. It is the deadliest attack in the last twenty years in Russia. The head of state feels personally and fully concerned by this type of tragedy.
