MOSCOW, October 30. /TASS/. The Russian Investigative Committee (IC) has opened a criminal case over the attack on the Russian Embassy in Kiev in June 2014, IC spokesman Vladimir Markin told TASS.
“The Main Investigation Department of the Russian Investigative Committee has opened a criminal case over the attack on the Russian Embassy in Kiev against Ukrainian radically driven members of nationalist armed formations Right Sector and Self-Defense of Maidan and other unidentified nationalists for an assault on official facilities and vehicles of officials under international protection,” Markin noted.
On June 14, several dozen people stormed the Russian Embassy in the Ukrainian capital, blocking the entry to the embassy, pelting smoke barrels and firecrackers at the premises, and tearing down the Russian flag. Police did not stop the aggressively minded crowd.
“As a result, the embassy building and other embassy property sustained more than 18.8 million rubles ($440,700) of material damage,” Markin said.
Moscow called on Kiev to ensure the security of the Russian Embassy and of the consulates general in Odessa, Kharkiv and Lviv in order to guarantee their normal operation.
Russia urged “Ukraine to strictly comply with the provisions of the 1961 Vienna Convention and other international documents in protecting diplomatic missions”.
