On June 14, 2014, a protest rally took place near the Embassy of the Russian Federation in Ukraine against aggressive Kremlin policy and Russian support of terrorists and separatists leading to death of Ukrainian citizens and the military. The killing of dozens of Ukrainian military men in the transport aircraft near Luhansk by the modern Russian weaponry has become the very last tragedy within a several month conflict.
Strong feelings of the protesters were immediately used for the provocation attempts that do not comply with established norms of diplomatic relations and protection of diplomatic missions.
The Ukrainian authorities provided an immediate response to attempted provocations.
According to Ukraine’s law enforcement authorities some provocateurs were detained. The Government of Ukraine takes all necessary measures to secure a peaceful character of the protest movement and to resume the security of the diplomatic mission.
At the same time, overall stabilization of the situation is dependent on the preparedness of the Russian side to stop the support of terrorists and facilitate the peaceful settlement of a conflict in certain areas in the east of Ukraine.
