A group of angry protesters drenched Russian Ambassador to Poland Sergey Andreyev with bright red paint in an event to honor fallen World War II soldiers.
The Russian ambassador was in a Soviet military cemetery in Warsaw to celebrate the defeat of Nazi Germany during the Second World War. Andreyev was splattered with ‘red blood’ as he tried to lay flowers for the Soviet soldiers that had fallen in the conflict.
Video footage shows protesters surrounding the Russian diplomat, chanting the words “fascists” and “murderer” as they were throwing red paint directly at the ambassador’s face. The video showed Sergey Andreyev paying no mind to the demonstrators as he wiped away paint from his face.
Directly after the incident, Andreyev would say to reporters that he was “proud of my country and my president!”
