Protesters attack Russian embassy in Kiev
Hundreds of angry protesters in Ukraine have attacked the Russian embassy, calling for the release of a Ukrainian hunger-striking chopper pilot who has been in Russia’s custody for nearly two years.
Outraged by Moscow’s refusal to free Nadiya Savchenko, demonstrators rallied in front of the Russian embassy in the capital Kiev early on Sunday, hurling stones, smoke pellets and eggs at the building. They also broke some of its windows and torched several of the embassy’s cars.
Protesters also carried placards reading “Free Savchenko” and “Cannot break Nadiya.”
