utairOn August 5, the UTair airline office in Bamako came under an armed attack with the use of firearms and hand grenades. It was only by chance that no Russian or local citizens were hurt.

Moscow strongly condemns this gangster-like act, which was designed to intimidate foreign civilians who live and work in Mali.

We urge the Mali authorities to conduct a thorough investigation into this incident, hold the guilty accountable and take additional measures to ensure an appropriate level of security for foreign agencies and foreign nationals in the country
