Russian embassy in Belarus attacked with petrol bombs

Unidentified attackers have thrown two petrol bombs at the Russian embassy in Minsk, Belarus. No one was hurt, but one car was destroyed by fire.

The incident took place on Monday evening, Russian news agency Itar-Tass reports. Belarusian law enforcers have arrived at the scene of the incident. Belarus Emergencies Ministry confirmed the incident on Tuesday morning. They also said that no one was injured in the process and that the embassy workers discovered the burnt car only in the morning. Investigation into the incident has already started.

Russian embassy sent a note to the Belarus Foreign Ministry on Tuesday with a request to thoroughly investigate the attack.

Relations between Russia and Belarus are still friendly, but they recently suffered a downfall after Russian state television showed a series of documentaries and interviews with Belarusian opposition figures exposing the wrongdoings of President Lukashenko. Lukashenko has said in an interview that a "personal conflict" was the reason behind the aggravation of relations.
