Newsline: Eggs thrown at Russian embassy during Ukraine protest

Eggs have been thrown at the Russian embassy in London during pro-Ukrainian protests outside the building. Hundreds gathered calling for Russian President Vladimir Putin to withdraw from Ukraine in demonstrations outside the embassy in Kensington, west London, as well as Downing Street on Saturday afternoon. (https://www.aol.com/eggs-thrown-russian-embassy-during-140046905.html) Waving flags, banners and placards, protesters sang the Ukrainian anthem and chanted “Putin stop war”, “Putin go home” and “free Ukraine”. The embassy’s walls in Kensington Palace Gardens were covered in chalk-written messages, drawings of Ukrainian flags, splattered eggs and fake blood. Even the building itself appeared to have egg stains and cracked shells on it.
