The Polish citizens understand that the attack at the Consulate General of Poland in Lutsk, Ukraine, could be inspired somewhere from the outside. Maryana Betsa, the spokeswoman of Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry, reported that in her commentary to 112 Ukraine TV channel.
‘We do not rule out that such acts – just like previous similar provocations – are inspired from outside, given the ongoing Russian aggression. Poles understand that, too,’ she said.
The speaker added that the Ukrainian side will do everything within its grasp to find and punish the responsible ones, as well as to provide reinforced security for diplomatic and consulate entities in Ukraine. According to Betsa, the General Consulates of Poland in Ukraine will resume working in the near future. ‘Yesterday, out Ministry of Internal Affairs confirmed that they enhanced security measures; but it’s better to ask the Polish side when the Consulates will start working’.
The attack on the Polish Consulate General in Lutsk, northwestern Ukraine, took place at about midnight of March 29. The roof of the building was damaged by the shell, reportedly fired from a grenade launcher. The window under the roof was smashed to pieces. No casualties were reported, as there was no one on that floor at the moment. The guards who were sitting in the office one floor lower suffered no injuries.
