MOSCOW, December 19. /TASS/. Moscow condemns another anti-Russian uproar unleashed by Ukrainian extremists against the Kiev office of the Russian news agency, Novosti, the Russian foreign ministry said in a statement.
"We are outraged by the radicals’ anti-Russian escapade and demand that Ukrainian authorities strictly abide by their international obligations to protect the rights of the media and ensure journalists’ safety," the statement reads.
Around 15-20 people, calling themselves "Maidan activists", broke into the news agency’s office yelling out insults and threats, while blocking TV cameras. None of the personnel sustained any injuries, nor was any of the agency’s technical equipment damaged.
"We call on the OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media to give her principal opinion on this disgraceful incident," the Russian foreign ministry added.
