AA photoAn ultra-nationalist group of protestors targeted the Turkish Embassy in Moscow on Nov. 25 following demonstrations at Turkey’s Nov. 24 downing of a Russian fighter jet near the Syrian border.
Around 500 protestors of the Russian political party LDPR carrying Russian, Syrian and party flags first shouted slogans against Turkey in front of the Turkish embassy in the afternoon before pelting the building with stones.
Windows on the first two floors of the four-story building were completely broken, according to diplomats at the embassy.
Diplomats said no one was injured in the attack, adding that the Russian police failed to stop the attack.
Protesters also pelted the embassy’s external wall with tomatoes and eggs.
The ultra-nationalist protestors also chanted “We will come again tomorrow” after the attack.
