"Around 10 am on Saturday, April 13, the official vehicle of the Ambassador of Ukraine to the United Kingdom was deliberately rammed as it sat parked in front of the Embassy of Ukraine's building. The police were called immediately, and the suspect's vehicle was blocked up," the Embassy of Ukraine to the UK said in an official statement.
"Nevertheless, despite the police actions, the attacker hit the Ambassador's car again. In response, the police were forced to open fire on the perpetrator's vehicle. The culprit was apprehended and taken to a police station," they added.
The embassy further said that no staff has been injured in the incident, as the police have launched investigations to ascertain the motive behind the "attack."
The current Ukrainian ambassador to the UK is Natalia Galibarenko, who has held the post since 2015.
