Two Ukrainians accused of attack on Russian cultural center in Kiev arrested in absentia
MOSCOW, March 22 (RAPSI) – A court has issued an arrest warrant for two alleged members of Ukraine’s nationalist organization S14 charged with attacking the Russian center of science and culture in Kiev in absentia, the press service of Russia’s Investigative Committee reports Friday.
Ukrainians Sergey Mazur and Alexander Voytko are also charged with desecration of the Russian state flag, the statement reads.
According to the Investigative Committee, in 2018, radicals illegally entered the center’s premises, destructed an exposition devoted to the oeuvre of Russian opera singer Fedor Chaliapin, painted a wall with anti-Russian signs and used violence against a counsellor of Russia’s embassy in Ukraine.
An alleged leader of the nationalist organization Eugeny Karas was arrested in absentia in January.
