Our condolences to the families of the victims," the ministry said on social networks. The tweet was shared by Prime Minister Petr Fiala and speaker of the lower house Markéta Pekarová Adamová.

Words of condemnation have also come from the Czech Interior Ministry. "A terrorist attack on defenseless civilians is unjustifiable under any circumstances. My condolences to the families and loved ones of all the victims of today's shocking violence in Krasnogorsk," Interior Minister Vít Rakušan wrote on the X network shortly after the news broke.

Speaker of the Senate, Miloš Vystrčil, also expressed his condolences to the families of all the victims and said a terrorist attack is terrible and horrific wherever it occurs.

According to Reuters, masked assailants burst into a large concert hall near Moscow on Friday and sprayed the crowd with gunfire, killing over 130 people, injuring more than 140 and setting fire to the venue. The terror group ISIS has claimed responsibility but failed to provide proof of the claim.
