In Singapore, on the margins of the ASEAN defense ministers' meeting, the first personal meeting of US defense minister James Mattis and Russian defense minister - Sergei Shoigu took place. It is reported by the press service of the Russian military.

It was noted that the heads of military departments of the two countries met before the start of the summit at the entrance to the conference room. Sergei Shoigu and James Mattis shook hands.

According to the press service of the Russian department, the head of the Pentagon expressed his condolences to Shoigu in connection with the massacre at the polytechnic college of Kerch.

"He noted that in the United States similar things happen, and the Americans understand the feelings of Russians. The Russian defense minister thanked his colleague and noted that such cases are becoming common in the world and all possible measures should be taken to prevent these tragedies," the statement said.

In turn, the US Department of Defense has not yet commented on the ministerial meeting.

As we reported an explosion thundered at a college in Kerch, the town in the Russian-occupied Crimea. As of now, it is known about the death of 18 people and the injury of 40, most of them are teenagers. The official version is the explosion of an unknown explosive device. 

According to the preliminary information, an 18-year-old student of the fourth year of college Vladyslav Roslyakov conducted the mass murder. The investigation reported that Roslyakov shot up people in the college and then committed suicide. 

We recall, Russia occupied the Crimea after the illegal referendum on March 16, 2014. Ukraine does not recognize the annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation, like most Western countries, which have imposed a number of political and economic sanctions on Russia.
