Ambassador of France to Ukraine Isabelle Dumont has expressed gratitude to the Ukrainians, who laid flowers outside the Embassy, according to a QHA correspondent.
“On July 14, the whole France celebrated the national holiday which is very important for us. It is important since it represents our values, the values of freedom, equality and fraternity. Those, who organized the act of terrorism, attacked our values,” she said.
Isabelle Dumont went on to say that French President François Hollande is going to assemble the Defense Council to consider security issues in France.
From the early morning, Kyiv residents have been laying flowers outside the French Embassy in Ukraine, expressing their condolences to the French people. Flags of France and the European Union have been lowered due to the national tragedy.
In the evening on July 14 at about 11pm, a terrorist attack in the French city of Nice claimed the lives of 84 people. According to the latest data, 18 people are in critical condition and about 150 wounded. According to the Ukrainian Foreign Minister, one Ukrainian was killed and one more injured in the terror attack. A white truck on speed drove into a crowd of people on the Promenade des Anglais, where tourists and residents of the city celebrated a national holiday, Bastille Day. Then a terrorist got out of the truck and started shooting into the crowd.
The truck driver turned out to be a 31-year-old Tunisian, a resident of Nice. He was shot dead by police.
President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko expressed his condolences to the families of those killed in France.
