Speaking after the ceremony, Russian Ambassador to France Alexei Meshkov called the ceremony "something that was meant to happen," calling the Cultural Center "a part of Russia, something that spiritually binds us with our home today."
"People who mourn with the whole country have come here today," Meshkov told Sputnik France.
In the meantime, people are bringing flowers to the Russian embassy in France to express their condolences to the victims of the tragedy.
A nation-wide mourning has been declared Wednesday in connection with the tragedy.
