Elizabeth II and Vladimir Putin

Vladimir Putin expressed condolences to King Charles III on the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II.

“The most important events of the recent history of the United Kingdom are inextricably linked with the name of Her Majesty. For many decades, Elizabeth II rightfully enjoyed the love and respect of her subjects, as well as authority on the world stage. I wish you courage and perseverance in the face of this heavy, irreparable loss. I ask you to convey the words of sincere sympathy and support to the members of the royal family and all the people of Great Britain, — according to a telegram published by the Kremlin press service.

Vladimir Putin first met Elizabeth II in 2000 at Windsor Castle during a working trip to the UK. The next time they met was in 2003, during Putin's state visit to the UK— it was the first such visit by a Russian head of state to the UK in more than 150 years. The Russian president, in violation of protocol, was late for her by about 12 minutes. In total, the visit then lasted three days, Putin was accompanied by the son of Elizabeth II Duke of York Andrew on several trips around the kingdom.

The last, third time, the meeting between Putin and Elizabeth II took place in 2014, in France, at commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Allied landings in Normandy.

Elizabeth II died at the age of 97 in the Scottish castle of Balmoral. Her last public appearance was on September 6, during the appointment of the new British Prime Minister Liz Truss.
