Czech Foreign Ministry Protests in Connection with the Action in Front of the Embassy in Moscow
OREANDA-NEWS. The Czech Republic is protesting against the action near the embassy in Moscow, which was held on April 5 by members of the left-wing radical organization Other Russia.
This is stated in a message by the press secretary of the republic’s Foreign Ministry. “The Czech Embassy in the Russian Federation sent an official note to the Russian Foreign Ministry today. We expect that the Russian authorities will take the necessary measures to prevent such incidents,” it says.
According to the report, the protesters fixed a banner with the words “Stop fascism” on the fence of the embassy and threw a smoke bomb into its territory.

As a result of the incident, no one was injured; there were no detentions.
