MOSCOW - Russian President Vladimir Putin strongly condemned the blast in Ankara, the Kremlin said on Sunday.

"Putin resolutely condemns the brutal terrorist attack in Ankara," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.

"Putin offers his condolences to all those that lost their relatives in this act of terror and wishes soonest recovery to those injured," Tass news agency quoted Peskov as saying.

At least 27 people were killed and 75 others injured in a powerful explosion that hit the Turkish capital Ankara on Sunday.

This is the third major blast in the Turkish capital since last October. Currently, no party claimed responsibility for the attack.
