We understand that in the four years of war the security situation of our diplomatic establishments abroad requires a review of the conditions of protection. We will strengthen protection to ensure proper working conditions for embassy staff,said Betz.
According to her, on Saturday, the Ukrainian embassy in Greece was attacked by unknown persons. The attackers "threw the courtyard of the diplomatic mission with Molotov cocktails that did not catch fire."
The representative of the Foreign Ministry noted that "the fire services and law enforcement officers quickly arrived at the scene, none of the embassy staff was hurt."
She also reported that the attackers managed to set fire to three ambassadorial vehicles parked outside the embassy building. They received significant damage and can not be repaired.
In addition, according to her, the attackers most likely acted "under the influence of Russia," because "information about the attack first appeared not in the Greek media, but on the pro-Russian sites."
Currently, the Ukrainian Embassy in Athens is guarded round the clock by the Greek police.
