MOSCOW, August 29. /TASS/. Attacks in Kiev on the mission of Rossotrudnichestvo, or the Federal Agency for the Commonwealth of Independent States, Compatriots Living Abroad and International Humanitarian Cooperation should first of all be denounced by the Ukrainian authorities, as the attackers seek to drive a wedge between people, the agency’s head, Lyubov Glebova, said on Monday, commenting on the latest rampage against the mission’s building by Ukrainian nationalists.
"I believe a condemnation must first of all be voiced by Ukraine," Glebova said. She stated that the federal agency was doing its best to make Kiev understand that those who pelt Russian missions "are acting against their own citizens and not against Russia as a state."
She believes the instigators are working very hard to ruin the remaining thread in Russian-Ukrainian relations. "These are ties among the people. Dialogue was practically severed at diplomatic and economic levels, so now the only remaining ties we have left are between people," she noted.
On Saturday, Ukrainian radicals attacked Rossotrudnichestvo’s building in Kiev, hurling smoke pellets at the mission and painting the walls with their insignia. Even though police arrived at the scene, none of the attackers were detained.
Previously, a similar attack on the agency’s mission in Kiev occurred in the small hours of July 14, when Ukrainian ultra-radicals hurled smoke bombs.
