The Head of the House of Romanoff and the Tsesarevich mourn the loss of life and injuries in the terrorist attack in Barcelona

The Head of the Russian Imperial House, H.I.H. The Grand Duchess Maria of Russia, and her son and heir, H.I.H. The Tsesarevich and Grand Duke George of Russia, are profoundly saddened by the loss of life in the terror attack that struck Barcelona today.  They pray for the repose of the souls of those who perished and for the quick recovery of those who were injured.  Their Imperial Highnesses extend their deepest condolences to the family and friends of all those who lost their lives, to His Majesty King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia, and to all the people of Spain.

There is no justification for terrorism, no matter where it takes place, what form it may take, or what causes it purports to support.  In the face of this evil, whatever conflicts in national politics or international relations there may be all fade into the background.  All citizens, all governments, and all countries must work together not only to prevent future atrocities like the one today and to bring the guilty to justice, but also to eradicate, decisively and successfully, the very sources that breed this kind of ungodly and inhumane phenomenon of our times.
