The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine shares deep concern over the use of force at the Independence Square last night. The objective investigation which is being carried out on behalf of the President of Ukraine will give a legal assessment of these events.
For the Ukrainian people, who have repeatedly demonstrated its wisdom, tolerance and respect for European values, the right to peaceful assembly, freedom of expression and human rights are the fundamental principles of building a democratic society.
We are confident that citizens of Ukraine will again demonstrate to the world their commitment to these values, manifest restraint and won’t respond to provocation.
Ukraine remains committed to the protection of the fundamental rights and freedoms as well as the introduction of the European norms and standards. MFA of Ukraine will further exert resolute efforts for the successful implementation of the European integration course of our state.
