KIEV: Ukrainian law enforcement agencies do not let Russian citizens in the building of the Russian Federation’s Embassy in Kyiv for voting in the Russian presidential election. The Ukrainian National Police carefully check documents of people who want to enter the embassy’s building at the door frame metal detectors, an UNIAN correspondent has said. They let journalists pass through if they have a press card, but people with passports of Russian citizens are not allowed to enter.At the same time, the UNIAN correspondent saw only two cases when a person with a Russian passport had not been allowed to enter the embassy’s premises.
There were not many people wishing to come to the embassy for voting, the correspondent said. Meanwhile, Ukrainian activists are staging a rally outside the embassy’s building in protest against the Russian presidential election in occupied Crimea. Their number is growing. They have brought an audio system, which is playing Ukrainian patriotic music. Around 80 people carrying the flags of the National Corps, the Svoboda Party, Right Sector and NGO Sokol are holding a rally at the metal frames on Povitroflotsky Avenue.
