In Stockholm, the flag of Ukraine was removed from the building of the Lithuanian embassy

In Stockholm, unidentified people removed the Ukrainian flag hung on the building of the Lithuanian embassy.

At the same time, the Lithuanian flag hanging nearby remained untouched. The Lithuanian embassy noted that the attackers planned this in advance, as it was necessary, among other things, to bring a ladder to climb the flagpole.
The incident was reported to the Swedish police and the country’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.


Earlier, the Polish authorities, without explanation, ordered the removal of Ukrainian flags from public transport in Warsaw, which had previously been placed in solidarity with the republic. The placement of Ukrainian symbols caused protests from many Polish citizens due to non-compliance with the rule on placing Ukrainian flags on a par with the flag of Poland and Warsaw.
