Law enforcement officers not only blocked the movement, but also built an additional fence of cars and a metal mesh, reports Strana. Thus, the Russian diplomatic institution turned out to be in a double ring of law enforcement officers and protesters. The latter thus wanted to "make clear to the authorities that there will be no surrender."

The National Guard stood between the convoy and the embassy. Meanwhile, at the rally, there were repeated calls addressed to the Russians “to get out of Ukraine” and hints that people could go to storm the building.

We recall that March 14 Ukraine celebrates the Volunteer Day. The corresponding resolution was adopted by the Verkhovna Rada at a meeting on January 17, 2017.
