"The conclusions of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons that the toxic chemicals used in the Amesbury and Salisbury attacks are of the same nature is another confirmation of the Russian Federation's continuing aggressive policy aimed against the states' sovereignty and undermining international law and order," the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine said in a statement.

It is reported Ukraine reiterates its firm stance that the use of chemical weapons by anyone, anywhere and under any circumstances is a flagrant violation of international law and those responsible for such actions must be held accountable.

"We are convinced that only international solidarity may be an effective response to the constant provocations of the Russian Federation, and we encourage our foreign partners to continue coordinated pressure on the Kremlin to make it refuse from its aggressive actions," reads the statement.
