Radical group's attack on Ukrainian embassy in Russia might be 'planned, sanctioned act' - Ukraine FM (VIDEO)
The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry has sent a protest note to the Russian Foreign Ministry in connection with the attack on the Embassy of Ukraine in Russia committed by a group of radicals on August 27.
"The note says that such actions violate the provisions of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations of 1961 and other international legal obligations of Russia," the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said in a statement published on Tuesday.
The Foreign Ministry noted that such illegal actions, which were taking place while Russian law enforcers did nothing, suggest that this was a planned and apparently sanctioned act.
The ministry urged the Russian authorities to hold a comprehensive investigation of this incident, to stop psychological pressure on the employees of the Ukrainian diplomatic mission and to ensure appropriate conditions for normal functioning of the Ukrainian Embassy in Moscow.
