    Entrance to the building of the Russian Embassy in Kiev that had been previously blocked by three people, including member of Ukraine's nationalist Svoboda Party Ihor Miroshnichenko, has been unblocked, a RIA Novosti correspondent reported.

    KIEV (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, at least three men with a big dog blocked the entrance to the Russian Embassy, where the Russians are coming to the parliamentary election vote. One man was detained after policemen clashed with the rioters.

    The other two, including Miroshnichenko, began to break the fence of the building of the Russian Embassy.
