SOCHI. April 19 (Interfax) - Russian President Vladimir Putin is aware of reports that the Boston Marathon bombing was likely committed by people coming from the North Caucasus, a Kremlin aide said.
"The president has been informed," presidential aide Yury Ushakov told journalists after he was asked whether Putin knows that the bombers supposedly come from a Chechen family.
Ushakov said he did not know the details of the latest developments in the United Statse, as Putin was having negotiations with the Egyptian leader when reports started coming from there.
