In this tragic for our Motherland time when the blood spilled on the streets of Ukrainian cities, we, the employees of the Embassy of Ukraine in the United Kingdom and the Consulate General in Edinburgh, being the patriots of Ukraine, bow our heads in sorrow for those who perished defending the democratic future of Ukraine, its European choice and the right for honour and dignity of its citizens.
We consider the bloodshed and loss of lives as unacceptable. The only way out of this situation is to stop the use of force and come back to dialogue for peaceful settlement in order to avoid new victims of this fratricidal confrontation.
Embassy staff considers the statements that cast doubts upon the unity of our country and our people as unacceptable. Peace and harmony in Ukraine should be restored for the sake of blessed memory of those killed in these sad days as well as for the future of our children.
At this crucial time, we are united with our people.
