Russian police started investigation of the assault of the Ukrainian Culture Center in Moscow and the arson of the flag of Ukraine. This is reported by vesti.ru citing the source in the law enforcement bodies.
The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs called the arson a “barbarian action” and promised to investigate an incident, reported by RIA Novosti citing the official representative of the Ministry Maria Zakharova.
As we reported earlier, the attack on the Ukrainian Culture Center in Moscow and arson of the Ukrainian flag occurred on November 22. The events near the Ukrainian foundation (which performs purely peaceful educational activity) are treated by Ukraine as a shameless provocation aimed at incitement of ethnic hatred and artificial intrusion of aggression to the Russian society.
