MOSCOW, October 8. / ITAR-TASS /. Dutch Ambassador in Moscow Ron van Dartel arrived at the Russian Foreign Ministry to talk about the incident with a Russian diplomat in The Hague.

As reported on the eve by Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich, “this past weekend, armed men in camouflage broke in the apartment of Minister-Counselor of Russian Embassy Dmitry Borodin and under a false pretext of the alleged mistreatment of his children severely beat him in their own eyes”. The diplomat informed that on Monday the Russian Foreign Ministry has sent the Dutch side a sharp note of protest in connection with the incident.

Borodin was attacked after he warned the intruders about his diplomatic status, Lukashevich said. "It's common knowledge that a diplomat's dwelling is inviolable."

"Borodin was handcuffed and taken to a police station where he was kept for the whole night," the spokesman went on. "Then he was released without any explanations or apology."

The attack is not just a gross violation of international norms and rules, but also of provisions of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations. The Russian Embassy in the Hague is looking into the circumstances of this illegal act. "The Russian Foreign Ministry is sending a sharp note of protest to the Netherlands," Lukashevich said.

Meanwhile, the Dutch ambassador refused to give comments to Itar-Tass after the talk at the Russian Foreign Ministry.
