Many officials are attending the ceremony, including ambassadors of Australia, Malaysia, Germany, USA, Estonia; OSCE, EU representatives and other international organisations. There are also Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, PM Arsenii Yatseniuk and other Ukrainian politicians. Still, most of the people are diplomats.

He thanked Ukrainian citizens for compassion and flowers Ukrainians brought to the Dutch Embassy today. He also commemorated Ukrainians that had lost their lives in the war.
