The civilized world must be united to give an adequate response to terrorist acts and threats, to defend shared values and win, assures Volodymyr Groysman.
"Terrorism has no limits. These barbaric ideas can be brought to life anywhere in the world, but the global community must be strong and confront the spread of terrorism that has support in particular, of some countries-aggressors", he stressed.
