Security measures at Czech Embassy in Moscow to be reinforced

07-05-2020

The Czech Foreign Ministry will strengthen security measures at its embassy in Moscow, Czech Television reported on Thursday.

According to the ministry, the measures are part of a long-term plan, which has nothing to do with the current tension in Czech-Russian relations.

The measures include perimeter protection and the control of entry into the embassy, ministry spokeswoman Zuzana Štíchová told the Czech News Agency.

Last month, demonstrations led by a Russian nationalist group took place in front of the embassy, while in front of the General Consulate in St. Petersburg another group lit a smoke bomb.
