The facade of the Russian consulate in New York was vandalized with red paint, police said on Friday (Sept 30), in what appears to be a gesture of protest against Russia’s annexation of four Ukrainian regions.

By noon Friday, large patches of red paint several feet high and wide covered the facade of the embassy, ​​a Renaissance-style building on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. An AFP photographer noted. The entrance gate is also painted red.

Police were notified around 1:30 a.m., a New York police spokesman told AFP. “No one has been arrested and the investigation is ongoing.”Noting that the incident was considered, he added this person responsible “Probably fueled by hostility”.

The act of sabotage comes as Russian President Vladimir Putin formalized the annexation of four Ukrainian territories on Friday, with the United States leading the way after polls condemned by many countries as fraudulent elections. On Friday, a particularly deadly missile attack killed at least 30 civilians in a Ukrainian-controlled area near Zaporizhia (southern Ukraine).
