Video: Russia Mourns 9/11

I think it is very respectful and commendable that despite these current days of war, extreme diplomatic hostilities, and fundamental disagreements between the United States and Russia over the future direction of the international system, that some people in Moscow have taken a moment today to memorialize the victims of the September 11th attacks. Let’s never forget that the Russians are a people who have suffered immensely from the cruelty of terrorism, and there is no reason these basic humanitarian values transcend the highs and lows of politics and government.
