MOSCOW, November 4. /TASS/. Moscow residents have held a protest rally outside the UK’s embassy.
On Friday evening, about 500 people came to the British embassy in Moscow to protest against Thursday’s action in London, TASS said.
On Thursday, British protesters blocked Russia’s embassy in London, dumping mannequin body parts outside it. Some people handcuffed themselves to the embassy’s gate. The action was staged in protest of Russia’s operation in Syria. Earlier, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson had encouraged to hold protests outside the Russian diplomatic missions in the UK.
In Moscow, the protesters were holding banners in English and Russian: ‘No double standards,’ and ‘Our diplomats are untouchable.’ Apart from that, they put up boards with attached lists of the military operations British troops had been fighting in and sprinkled them with red paint symbolizing blood.
It was a second protest outside the UK’s embassy in Moscow.
Russia’s Foreign Ministry has denied its involvement in the organization of a protest rally outside the UK’s embassy in Moscow, the ministry’s spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said at the Govorit Moskva (Moscow Speaking) radio station on Friday.
"The Foreign Ministry has never urged either activists or public people to hold any rallies outside foreign embassies for just one reason. The Russian Federation fully meets its commitments, in particular the Vienna Convention, under which we are obliged to protect and guarantee a certain level of security to diplomatic missions," Zakharova said.
