Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has laid a wreath at the Kigali Genocide Memorial and visited the museum of the history of the Genocide against Tutsis, paying tribute to those who died in the tragic events of 1994.
In a message he wrote in the guestbook after visiting Kigali Genocide memorial in Gisozi, Lavrov urged the International community to ensure that the events that took place during the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsis never happen again.
“I deeply empathize with the national tragedy of the people of Rwanda. The terrible tragedy, which afflicted it 24 years ago, remains an unhealed wound in the hearts of millions of people. We must do everything to ensure that such crimes never happen again. We must vigorously oppose xenophobia, racial and religious intolerance. This is invaluable what President Paul Kagame is doing to strengthen inter-ethnic peace and harmony in the country,” Lavrov wrote in the memorial’s guestbook.
