Kyrgyzstan's interim leader Roza Otunbayeva sent a message of condolences Tuesday to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev over a suicide bombing at a Moscow airport that killed at least 35 people.

"The Kyrgyz people grieve and share with you the pain of the tragedy at Domodedovo airport, where as a result of inhuman act of terrorism, dozens of innocent people died and hundreds were injured," Otunbayeva said in the message, according to the presidential press service.

"We are shocked to the depths of the soul by monstrous, barbaric crime, the victims of which were citizens of different nationalities from many countries. On behalf of all Kyrgyz people, and myself personally, I offer my deepest condolences to the families of victims and express my sympathy and support to all victims of the bloody terrorist actions," the message said.

Otunbayeva also said that Kyrgyzstan condemns terrorism in all its forms and manifestations anywhere in the world and expressed confidence that the perpetrators will be brought to justice.

A Kyrgyz citizen is among the 35 people killed in the suicide bombing on Monday at Moscow's Domodedovo airport, which also injured 152 others, according to Russia's RIA news agency.
