Moscow adds acting representative from Kiev summoned to Russian Foreign Ministry, where it was addressed to him a strong protest and demanded that Ukraine ensure the safety of Russian diplomatic personnel.

This incident takes place in the midst of tensions between Ukraine and Russia, accused by the West of massing troops on the Ukrainian border with a view to possible military intervention. The Kremlin firmly denies any belligerent intent.

Relations between Kiev and Moscow have already been appalling since Russia’s 2014 annexation of the Ukrainian Crimean peninsula and the start of a war between Ukrainian troops and pro-Russian separatists.
