Alarming events in Dnepropetrovsk have raised concern across Ukraine, as a series of blasts thundered in the midst of working day, which injured 29 citizens, including nine teenagers.
We are resolved in denouncing these inhuman immoral actions, whoever they would committed by. We express our sincere condolences to the injured, demand a qualified, unbiased and quickest possible detection of these crimes, and punishment for those guilty in their commitment.
Forces that can only be labeled as dark have resorted to outward terrorism to achieve their mercenary and selfish goals. They threaten the determining principles and values of Ukrainian society, such as political stability, public peace and security, respect of the inviolability of human life, and impermissibility of inflicting damage to people’s health on whatever ideological considerations or intentions.
The prophetic words of Taras Shevchenko, an outstanding Ukrainian poet, cannot but come to the mind: “Beware! Be humans or woe is you”.
As said in the Koran: “Whoever kills a person, except as a punishment for murder or mischief in the land, it will be written in his book of deeds as if he had killed all the human beings on the surface of the Earth and whoever will save a life shall be regarded as if he gave life to all the human beings” (Koran, 5:32). 
In these hard time we address all the political forces, public organizations and religious associations in Ukraine, the Ukrainian public, and call them to preserve peace and balance, not allowing for destabilization of social life, as it may cost too much for our young state.
We pray to the Most High for the quickest possible healing of physical and spiritual wounds of the injured, and for the balanced temper of each of us, which will allow us to avoid mutual distrust, hostility and enmity. We ask the Lord to bless the Ukrainian land and establish peace, accord, stability and prosperity on it.
