Moscow Demands Immediate Release of Russian Embassy Staff in Kiev

Moscow, August 29 (QNA) – Russia insists on the immediate release of staff members of the Russian embassy in Kiev, detained on August 28, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Friday.

“We urge to stop provocations against Russian diplomatic institutions in Ukraine and our diplomatic staff members”, the ministry said in a statement carried by Itar-Tass News agency.

Another revolting action against the Russian embassy security guards, including the personal guard of the ambassador, was staged in Kiev on August 28. They were detained at the exit of a cafe under an openly manufactured pretext of having grenades, despite the fact that they produced diplomatic passports, the ministry said. (QNA)
