Moscow: Russian President Vladimir Putin sent his condolences to the victims of today's deadly attack on the offices of a French satirical newspaper and condemned "terrorism" in all its forms, his spokesman said on Wednesday.

"Moscow resolutely condemns terrorism in all its forms," Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov told TASS news agency, adding: "Nothing can justify terrorist attacks."

"President Putin... Expresses his deep condolences to the relatives and loved ones of the dead and also to the people of Paris and all the French," Peskov said.

"We are convinced that the fight with terrorism is impossible without cooperation between many sides," Putin's spokesman said in a separate comment to RIA Novosti state news agency. "Not one country can fight this evil alone."
