KIEV, January 17. /TASS/. The Ukrainian family, which died in the terrorist attack on the Cappuccino restaurant, was its owner, representative of the Ukrainian foreign ministry Evgeny Ignatovsky said in an interview with the 112 Ukraina television channel on Sunday.

"We have information they come from Kharkov," he said. "One woman and a child along with a man, a citizen of another country, lived temporarily in Ouagadougou; they owned the restaurant, which was attacked by the terrorists."

"I am shocked by the terrorist attack in Burkina Faso and by death of Ukrainian family - three adults and child. Tragedy for us all," he twitted.

On Friday night militants attacked and seized the Splendid hotel and the nearby Cappuccino caf· in the capital of Ouagadougou. Four terrorists died in a special police operation.
