THE HAGUE, October 7 (Itar-Tass) - Minister-Counsellor of the Russian Embassy in the Netherlands Dmitry Borodin told Itar-Tass that he was attacked in his flat in The Hague.

People in police uniform called up to him in his flat ‘under the false pretext’ overnight to Sunday. Borodin noted that they had not produced any identity cards that verify they were policemen.

“They said that the neighbours had allegedly informed about bad attitude to children in this flat. I have two children - a four-year-old daughter and a two-year-old son,” the diplomat said. Borodin noted that he warned the offenders about his diplomatic status and tried to prevent them from breaking in the flat. However, the attackers have brought him on the floor and have put handcuffs on him. “I was also hit by a stick on the head,” he noted.

Borodin noted that he had been brought to a police station, from where the duty diplomat of the Russian Embassy had taken him later without any apologies from the Netherlands.

“It is better now, but I have the high blood pressure, probably over this incident,” Borodin told Itar-Tass about his state of health.

The Russian Foreign Ministry stated on Monday that the ministry sends a harsh note of protest to the Netherlands over the attack of the minister-counsellor of the Russian embassy in the Netherlands.
