09.07.2012 - President Putin's address at the meeting of Russian ambassadors and permanent representatives

As you know, today, Russia is observing a national day of mourning for those killed in the south of our country and in the road accident in Ukraine. This is a great tragedy, a great misfortune. I ask you to stand and honour the victims’ memory with a minute of silence.
