Russia is ready to assist the United States in dealing with the damage caused by hurricane Katrina, which has taken 68 lives so far and left behind a tremendous amount of devastation, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a message to U.S. President George Bush Tuesday.
"Russia deeply sympathizes with Americans, who faced a disaster of such a colossal scale, and is ready to offer necessary assistance," Putin said.
Putin asked Bush to extend his condolences to families and relatives of those killed in the disaster.
"Accept my sincere words of regret in connection with the natural calamity in the USA. I know that hurricane Katrina, which swept the southeast coast of the country, resulted in deaths, left tens of thousands of Americans without roofs over their heads, and caused substantial damage to the region's economy," the message said.
Thanks Russia, Still don't trust you though.
Any word from the South Pacific?
Thanks for leading the charge and your comments/support will be remembered.
Perhaps NOLA should contract with the Dutch - they seem to know how living below sea level is properly done.
Okey-dokey. Chavez made the same statement. Soooooo... what is going to happen?
My prediction: NOTHING.
No country has ever lifted a thing for this country. If I were inside the Beltway, I'd kick the friggin UN out of NY, and tell the rest of the World to go away.
Yes, I'm becoming an isolationist. Ane I used to buy 16,000 tons of steel a year, sourced from all over the World./rant
Oh.. maybe they should contact an AMERICAN Company for the work?
Vlad, it might be better if you helped us out more with Iraq and the nuclear ambitions of Iran.
The terrorist warloards already spent that killing innocent christians...
Thanks Putin! Ever helped on an oil rig? Bulldoze a levee? Mudbugs on the House!!!
Any links out there to other countries that have offered assistance?
They need to send oil.
Putin has class. He made a generous offer befitting his country's place in the world. Russia has the grace of a superpower. Many thanks from an American citizen.
Iran offers condolences to relatives of U.S. hurricane victims 21:10 | 30/ 08/ 2005 TEHRAN, August 30 (RIA Novosti) - Iran's foreign ministry spokesperson Hamid Reza Asefi offered condolences to relatives of hurricane Katrina victims, an Iranian foreign ministry official said Tuesday. "The people of the Islamic Republic of Iran sympathize with the American people, especially with families of the victims of the natural disaster," the official statement said. The spokesman expressed hope that "in the near future the situation in the states affected by the hurricane and the life of local residents [would] return to normal." Hurricane Katrina caused massive destruction and flooding in America's southeastern states of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. U.S. President George Bush declared these states a natural disaster zone Monday. According to the latest confirmed reports, the number of hurricane deaths has reached 68.
It's the thought that counts. I'm sure those hit by this appreciate any help.
