KIEV, October 12 (Itar-Tass) - The person who attacked Russia’s deputy consul in Panama, Yevgeny Manilov, is a citizen of Ukraine, the Department of Information Policy at Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry told Itar-Tass on Saturday.
“Correct, we have received the information about it from the consular section,” the source said refusing to add any details.
The incident occurred Friday morning near the building in the centre of the capital where the Russian embassy rents offices. When Manilov and another embassy employee were escorting a visitor toward the exit, “a young man emerged from crowed and stabbed Manilov in the stomach without saying a word.”
The attacker tried to escape only to be detained by security staff.
Manilov was taken to hospital immediately after the incident, where the doctors said his condition was “medium grave.” He underwent a successful surgery and now his life is not at risk. Embassy officials take turns at the injured diplomat’s bedside.
The Russian ambassador said that the Ukrainian citizen who had attacked the Russian diplomat several times came to the consular office days ago.
