KIEV, December 06. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich offered condolences to South African President Jacob Zuma over the death of leader of the movement against the Apartheid regime and first black South African President Nelson Mandela on Friday.
“Ukraine pays a tribute of respect to a great son of the African continent that had always adhered to humanistic ideals, high spiritual values, the principles of democracy and justice,” Yanukovich said in the telegram. “Sharing the feelings of sorrow over an irreparable loss, I ask to convey sincere condolences and the words of support to the near and dear of Nelson Mandela and the whole nation of South Africa,” the Ukrainian president said.
