A crowd which gathered outside the Ukrainian Embassy in Moscow on March 6 pelted the building with eggs, reports Den online publication.

Holding anti-Ukrainian placards and Russian flags, the people chanted ‘Hands off our diplomats!’

Shortly before the protest, police stepped up security near the embassy. After some time, the protesters left. No one was placed under arrest.

Moscow police removed some of the barriers put up around the embassy leaving them only on the sidewalk near the building.

It was reported earlier that protesters pelted with eggs the Russian Embassy in Kiev demanding that Nadezhda Savchenko be released from prison.
