Newsline: Man launches paint at Russian embassy in London

Police have said a man launched paint at the Russian embassy in London as Ukrainian protests took place outside the building. Hundreds gathered outside the embassy in Kensington and at Downing Street to call for Vladimir Putin to withdraw from Ukraine. The embassy’s walls were covered in chalk-written messages, Ukrainian flags, eggs and fake blood. Even the building itself appeared to have egg stains and cracked shells on it. A man also rode past on a bike and threw paint at the wall at just after 3:30pm. A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: “Inquiries are ongoing and no arrests have been made.
