The rally in support of the Ukrainian pilots and MP is gaining momentum. Activists from the central square of the capital moved to the Embassy of the Russian Federation in Kyiv.

Just before the entrance to the building, the activists are chanting "Invaders, get out of Ukraine!" and "Putin, free Savchenko!" They also offer to take Rynat Akhmetov and Viktor Medvedchuk (Ukrainian oligarchs) hostage to exchange them for Nadezhda Savchenko.

In addition, the activists sep up a Ukrainian national flag on the fence of the Embassy and bombard the building with eggs.

It is also reported that several men dressed in camouflage clothes and balaclavas climbed over the fence and broke the glass on the front door of the Embassy. Later, one of them disappeared into the Police Academy, located nearby.
