MOSCOW, February 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s Embassy in Russia functions nominally, and the ambassador is in Moscow, the embassy’s press service told Itar-Tass.
The embassy declined to elaborate. “We cannot give political comments. The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry is in competence to comment on the situation. We can only say the embassy functions nominally. The ambassador is in Moscow,” a Ukrainian diplomat said.
Russian citizens arrive at the Ukrainian Embassy in Moscow to convey sympathies on the death of people during the tragic events in Kiev. People bring flowers and candles.
“Diplomats of the Ukrainian Embassy in Russia and Ukrainian communities in Russia cast thoughts back jointly with the Ukrainian people,” the embassy’s website runs.
“Within three days memorial services will be held in Moscow’s Christian churches,” the report says.
