Ukraine is concerned over continued escalation of situation in the Middle East after the attacks on the base of Operation "Inherent Resolve" and the U.S. Embassy in Iraq, and this night’s U.S. defensive response in Baghdad.

Ukraine proceeds from the utter need to prevent further escalation and any retaliatory actions which might endanger the stability in the region and global security.
