    Moscow is ready to render assistance to London in investigation into the attack near the Westminster area in London if such a request appears, Vladimir Dzhabarov, the first deputy chairman of the Federation Council's Committee for International Affairs, told Sputnik Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Dzhabarov stressed that Russia had repeatedly urged the international community to facilitate efforts in fighting terrorism, while the Russian president had suggested creating an international coalition, which would bring the countries together in countering terror threats.

    "Russia is ready to assist the United Kingdom in investigation into the attack in London if such a request is made," Dzhabarov said.

    On Wednesday, a car attack and a shooting episode occurred in the borough of Westminster in London, leaving reportedly two people killed and several injured. London Metropolitan police said earlier in the day they were treating the events as terrorist incidents.
