The foreign minister of Russia has summoned the Canadian ambassador and issued a protest over attacks on the Russian embassy in Ottawa. The ministry has made the following announcement on Monday.
It added an unknown person threw a Molotov cocktail- gasoline bomb- onto the grounds of the Russian embassy in Ottawa. It also added that “aggressive” demonstrators had blocked an entrance to the consular section of the embassy.
Meanwhile, a spokesperson for Canadian Foreign Minister Melanie Joly said that violence & vandalism are not acceptable, along with relevant authorities were looking into the matter.
Joly spokesperson Adrien Blanchard added in a statement that, “We know that Canadians are shocked at the latest images coming out of Izium. That is why we will not limit any effort to hold Russian President Vladimir Putin & his accomplices accountable for the war crimes.”
Last week, Ukrainian officials added that they had found 440 bodies in the woodlands near Izium, a town in the northeastern Ukraine recaptured from Russian forces earlier in September during a counter-offensive in the Kharkiv region. They said that most of the dead were civilians.
The Kremlin on Monday rejected allegations that Russian forces had committed war crimes in Ukraine’s Kharkiv province as a “lie”.
