WARSAW, November 22, 22:59 /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian embassy in Warsaw has calculated the size of damage caused to its building during nationalist riots on Independence Day on November 11. On that day, participants in the nationalist Independence March hurled fire crackers, stones and petards at the embassy.
“The damage is estimated at 11, 000 dollars,” the embassy’s spokeswoman Valeria Perzhinskaya said on Friday.
The nationalists damaged the Russian embassy’s entrance gates, three cars and a phone set. The embassy’s territory was littered with splinters, bottles, fragments of petards and fire crackers.
Other Russian diplomatic facilities in Warsaw, including the Commercial Office and the Russian Center of Science and Culture, were also damaged.
