Statement of the MFA of Ukraine on the terrorist attack carried out near the Houses of Parliament in London on March 22, 2017

23 March 2017, 17:47

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine condemns in the strongest possible terms the terrorist attack carried out near the Houses of Parliament in London on March 22, 2017 that left four people dead, including one police officer, and injured 40 others.

We extend our heartfelt condolences to the families of those who lost their lives. To the other victims we extend our most sincere wishes that they will have speedy and good recoveries from their injuries.

Such criminal and barbaric acts of terrorist violence which kill and maim innocent people can never be condoned regardless of any cause they may be associated with.

This latest act must only strengthen the resolve of the international community to work together and consolidate our efforts to defeat utterly this poisonous ideology in our midst. It poses a threat to the entire civilized world and our way of life.
