MINSK, June 15, /ITAR-TASS/. Belarus’ foreign ministry is worried over the situation around the attack on the Russian embassy in Kiev, the ministry said in a statement on Sunday.
“We hope that the Ukrainian side is taking exhaustive measures to prevent further provocations against diplomatic missions, their personnel and property. We hope it will do its best to ensure their security and inviolability,” the ministry said.
The Belarusian foreign ministry reminded that the Vienna Convention of Diplomatic Relations bound host country governments to take all necessary measures to protect diplomatic missions from intrusion or damage and to prevent any disturbance of missions or insulting their personnel.
The Russian Embassy to Ukraine came under a violent attack on Saturday, June 14, with embassy cars overturned, the Russian flag torn down and the premises pelted with eggs, smoke barrels and firecrackers. Ukrainian police did nothing to stop the attack.
