Newsline: Ukrainian Embassy in Moscow Pelted With Eggs Following Attack Against Russian Consulate In Odessa

The Ukrainian embassy in Moscow was pelted with eggs following a simmilar attack against the Russian Consulate General in the southern Ukrainian city of Odessa. On Friday, right-wing Ukrainian nationalists organized a picket of the Russian Consulate in Odessa. “A large group of young people, about 100, assembled near the embassy building and started throwing various items, eggs, onto the embassy territory. Then they disappeared.” Police have not made any detentions, according to the source, as they were not notified of the incident. Russian Consul General in Odessa Valery Katunkin told media that Ukrainian radicals blocked entry to the building to stop people from attending events held ahead of Sunday’s Russia Day. The nationalist protesters pelted the building with eggs and built mock gallows nearby, according to Katunkin.
