Russian President Vladimir Putin has issued a statement on the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.

Following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, the president of Russia, Vladimir Putin, issued a statement on Thursday, September 8.

The Russian dictator said via the Kremlin Telegram channel: “Your Majesty, Please accept our deepest condolences on the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.

“The most important events in the recent history of the United Kingdom are inextricably linked with the name of Her Majesty. For many decades, Elizabeth II rightfully enjoyed the love and respect of her subjects, as well as authority on the world stage.

“I wish you courage and perseverance in the face of this heavy, irreparable loss. I ask you to convey the words of sincere sympathy and support to the members of the royal family and all the people of Great Britain.”

 

The news of Putin offering condolences to the UK after the passing of Queen Elizabeth II comes as tensions between the two countries have mounted over recent months following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

The UK has heavily funded Ukraine in the war against Russia and in part, Russia has threatened the UK with nuclear retaliation.

Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy also paid tribute to the Queen.

“It is with deep sadness that we learned of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. On behalf of the 🇺🇦 people, we extend sincere condolences to the @RoyalFamily, the entire United Kingdom and the Commonwealth over this irreparable loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.”
