“Deeply shocked by the horrific murder of . My sincere condolences to her family and friends”, Pavlo Klimkin tweeted.

The Minister stressed that street violence can not be tolerated.

Daily Mail reports that the suspect in murder of pro-EU British lawmaker Jo Cox suffers from long-lasting mental disease and was never interested in politics. His half-brother confirmed that in an interview. The police say 52-year-old Thomas Meir worked as a volunteer at a special school and suffered due to the constant feeling of being socially isolated. According to his family, Meir never showed any signs of interest towards politics, all the more EU referendum and the UK’s part in it.

As is known, British MP Jo Cox was assaulted on June 16, as she held a meeting with locals in West Yorkshire, England. The man argued with her and another man; then he suddenly took a handgun, shot Cox twice and stabbed her several times with a knife. The MP’s murder brought to a halt of Brexit, the ongoing campaign for the UK’s secession from the EU.
