MOSCOW, June 23. /TASS/. Kiev does not ensure the proper level of security for the operation of Russian diplomatic missions in Ukraine, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Thursday.
"After the state coup in Kiev in February 2014, Russia’s embassy in Kiev and Russian consulates general in Ukraine have repeatedly come under attacks of nationalistically set elements," Zakharova said, commenting on media publications on the absence of the coat of arms on the building of Russia’s embassy in Kiev.
"The operation of our foreign institutions was blocked. Illegal, and maybe specially managed from the viewpoint of increasing aggression, pickets, demonstrations were held," she said.
Zakharova said that as a result of these actions, the buildings of Russian diplomatic missions were damaged.
"The threat of any provocations against our employees on the part of various extremist elements remains," Zakharova said.
"They feel free in conditions and realia of modern Ukraine," she said. "Contrary to the international commitments of Ukraine, the adopted norms and regulations, the Ukrainian authorities do not ensure the proper level of measures of security for the operation of Russia’s diplomatic department and consular missions.
"They do not create conditions for normal work of our diplomats," Zakharova said.
