Following the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, condolences and tributes have been sent in from all around the world. Vladimir Putin, the president of Russia, was no different, despite the strained ties between Russia and the United Kingdom.
According to the New York Post, Putin wrote in a letter to King Charles III that the queen “rightfully enjoyed the love and respect of her subjects, as well as power on the world stage.” Putin expressed his wishes for King Charles III in a letter, wishing the monarch “courage and resilience in the face of this difficult irreparable loss,” and expressing his hope that the monarch would “pass on sincere condolences and support to members of the royal family and to the entire people of Great Britain.”
According to Reuters, Dmitry Peskov, the spokesperson for President Putin, praised Queen Elizabeth II for having “knowledge and authority,” which he believes are “very scarce on the international stage at the moment.” The Daily Mail reports that President Putin won’t be at the queen’s funeral on September 19.
According to Reuters, since the news of the queen’s passing, flowers, candles, and other memorials have been left at the British Embassy in Moscow. According to the New York Post, Queen Elizabeth was the only British queen to travel to Russia.
Piers Morgan, who was quoted by the New York Post as stating that the Russian president should “put [his] condolences where the sun don’t shine,” will be one person who will be glad. Morgan was worried about the lives lost in Ukraine.
