The UK Counter Terrorism Policing has removed the Ukrainian coat of arms, trident, or tryzub in Ukrainian, from the counter-extremism guide for public workers, the UK Embassy in Ukraine has reported on Twitter.
"We have a close working relationship with our Ukrainian partners and would not want to cause offence. We have met with representatives from the FCO and the Ukrainian Embassy, updated the Signs & Symbols Guidance Document and removed the Ukrainian constitutional trident," Counter Terrorism Policing said on its website.
Earlier, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry and the embassy in London called on the UK authorities to remove the trident from the extremism guide. The UK government issued an apology.
