In a letter to Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, Tusk directed "words of moral support for all citizens of the Russian Federation in these difficult times."

In a letter of condolence to Chairman of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, Polish Parliament's Speaker Bronislaw Komorowski stressed that the Moscow tragedy confirmed that struggle against terrorism should continue as one of the most significant tasks of the international community.
