Man involved in Ukrainian embassy incident sectioned

Ukrainian embassy London

Police were forced to open fire on a vehicle after it rammed the parked auto of Ukraine's ambassador in London.

The Ukrainian embassy said that ambassador Natalia Galibarenko's official vehicle had been deliberately rammed.

The embassy said none of its staff was injured.

Officers attempted to block the vehicle, then fired shots with Tasers and live bullets after the Mercedes again drove into Galibarenko's auto - and also into police - at about 10am yesterday.

London's Metropolitan Police confirmed they were called to reports of a auto hitting a number of parked cars near the Ukrainian embassy.

It added police were "forced to open fire on the perpetrator's vehicle".

A woman who works at a nearby shop said she heard shots fired twice between 10am and 11am on Saturday.

Police said the man they arrested also suffered no injuries and that the incident is not being treated as terror-related.


The man, who was not injured, has been taken to a central London hospital as a precaution.

Commenting on the incident, the Metropolitan police stated that they have opened an investigation into the attack.

The embassy is located in Holland Park, west London.

Ruptly's footage from the scene shows a sedan with its doors open in the middle of the street and forensic officers examining the area.

The vehicle has been a focus of attention for forensics officers.

Adding: "I would like to pay tribute to the officers involved in this incident who responded this morning and put themselves in harm's way as they do every day to keep the people of London safe".

Ch Supt Andy Walker said the firing of a police firearm would be investigated.
