The Russian Embassy in London has been attacked by a large group of people, throwing stones at the building and chanting slogans against the Syrian Government and President Bashar al-Assad.
There was significant damage and several windows were broken as a result of last night's incident, the embassy's official website states. None of the staff were injured.
"The police that arrived at the scene, regretfully, did not take measures to stop the continuing unsanctioned rally or detain the attackers," the press-service pointed out.
This is not the first case of vandalism against the Russian Embassy in London this year.
