Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman called a Saturday night attack on the Russian embassy in Kiev a small, though unacceptable incident.




“This is hooliganism, and this is unacceptable, because the Ukrainian capital Kiev must be a different kind of example of culture. That is why I think that such a small incident is not worth any comments,” Groysman told reporters.


The Russian embassy in Kiev confirmed on Saturday that about 20 individuals had attacked the Russian embassy with a smoke pellet and fireworks.


According to the Kiev police, no one was injured in the attack, though the embassy building has sustained insignificant damage. The investigation of the incident is underway.
