MOSCOW, July 8. /TASS/. An attempt to disrupt an event in the Russian Science and Culture Center in Kiev dedicated to the 1000th anniversary of Russian presence on Holy Mount Athos was another manifestation of anti-Russian hysteria, the Russian Foreign Ministry has said.
"This action was clearly preplanned, it was well orchestrated and became yet another manifestation of the clinical anti-Russian hysteria that we see in the realities of today’s Ukraine," the ministry said.
"Moscow hopes that the Ukrainian authorities will finally stop fanning Russophobic sentiment in society and take care of the need to building normal, mutually beneficial bilateral relations for the benefit of the peoples of Russia and Ukraine," the Russian Foreign Ministry noted.
The ministry noted that the extremists "broke the gate, blocked the center’s building, staged a riot desecrating the state symbols of the Russian Federation." "It is noteworthy that literally on the same day the Kiev City Council decided to rename Moscow Avenue in the Ukrainian capital giving it the name of Nazi henchman Bandera," the Russian Foreign Ministry added.
On Thursday evening, about 30 radical protesters led by Kiev City Council member Igor Miroshnichenko broke into the building of Rossotrudnichestvo (the Russian Federal Agency for CIS Affairs, Compatriots Living Abroad and International Humanitarian Cooperation) in Kiev and occupied the room on the second floor where events were underway, including the presentation of the book authored by Academician Pyotr Tolochko. The radicals said Tolochko was anti-Ukrainian and branded him the enemy of the Ukrainian state.
