U.S. President Barack Obama pledged on Tuesday to help Russia investigate the deadly terrorist attack on Moscow's Domodedovo Airport, the Kremlin said.
"The U.S. president said he was ready to provide any assistance to punish those who committed this crime," a Kremlin statement said following a phone conversation between Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev.
At least 35 people were killed and 180 injured when a suicide bomber detonated an explosive device in the arrivals zone of Russia's biggest airport on Monday. A total of 110 people have been hospitalized, with many in a critical condition.
"The U.S. president extended his deep condolences for the death of innocent people. He wished swift recovery to all those who were injured in this atrocious terrorist act," the Kremlin said.
The Russian president has instructed the government to implement thorough checks of passengers at major transportation facilities.
