Dozens of people chanted “England is War” and hurled dismembered limbs from showroom mannequins at the British embassy in Moscow, in apparent revenge for an anti-war demonstration outside Russia’s embassy in London the previous day. Crowds of activists holding placards reading “down with double standards” and “our diplomats are inviolable” gathered outside both the embassy and the British ambassador’s residence on Friday afternoon, local media reported. Video footage showed young men hurling fake limbs into the grounds of the embassy building. It is not clear if they caused any damage to the property.
