Russian embassy in Kiev attacked
Unknown individuals have attacked the Russian Embassy in Kiev with firecrackers, one day ahead of the Russian parliamentary elections, Sputnik reported.
The incident occurred at around 01:00 local time on Saturday (22:00 GMT on Friday), when about 20 individuals set off firecrackers and fireworks near the embassy building and then fled the scene, a Strana correspondent reports.
On Sunday, polling stations are expected to open at the Russian embassy in Kiev, despite Ukrainian authorities having banned voting in the Russian parliamentary elections on the territory of Ukraine. On September 18, Russian nationals will elect the Russian parliament's lower chamber of 450 seats. Half of the lawmakers will be elected from the party lists, while another 225 seats are contested in a single-member constituency race.
