“Ukraine is shocked by the news about the dreadful terrorist attack treacherously committed during New Year in Istanbul causing dozens of casualties. We share the sorrow of the Turkish nation. We grieve together with those who lost their friends and family,” the Head of State noted in his condolences to President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

“On behalf of the Ukrainian people and me personally, I express profound condolences and words of support to the families of the deceased and wish fast recovery to the wounded,” Petro Poroshenko said.

The Head of State has emphasized that Ukraine strongly condemns terrorism in all its manifestations and stands for the consolidation of efforts of the world community in the struggle against this threat.
