Ukrainian and Polish activists prevented Russian Ambassador to Poland Sergey Andreev from laying wreaths at the monument to the Soviet military.

That's according to an Ukrinform correspondent.

The ambassador and diplomats arrived at the Soviet monument but were blocked by activists. Andreev refused to lay wreaths, and the Russian diplomats were forced to get into their cars and leave.

Pro-Russian forces stayed at the site and went to lay wreaths at the monument to the Soviet soldier. Verbal exchanges continue between Ukrainian, Polish activists and pro-Russian activists near the monument.
