Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko arrived at the French Embassy in Kiev to pay his respects to the victims of the terror attacks that rocked France overnight.
According to Poroshenko, he met with senior personnel of Ukrainian law enforcement agencies and had them tighten security in Ukraine.
“This morning I met with senior personnel of Ukrainian law enforcement agencies and had them take all steps necessary to ensure peace and stability in Ukraine. Security will be tightened at airports, in centrally-located areas of the cities and on the border. We will be acting resolutely, effectively and responsibly to protect peace and quiet of the Ukrainians,” said Poroshenko.
Poroshenko went on to say that Ukraine is standing side by side with France in its fight against terrorism.
“The key message we have seen coming from France today is ‘we are not afraid’. Ukraine and France are protecting our common European values, such as freedom, equality and fraternity. In different languages these words form the cornerstone of European values. The entire world stands by France today,” Poroshenko said.
It was reported earlier that at least 150 people were killed in 7 unconnected terror attacks in Paris on the night of November 13-14. A state of emergency has been declared in France after the attacks.
