It comes as Russia celebrates Victory Day

The Russian ambassador to Poland has been attacked with red paint by a crowd who shouted “fascist” at him.

Sergey Andreyev was attending an event honouring Soviet soldiers killed during World War Two as Russia celebrates Victory Day to commemorate its victory over Nazi Germany in 1945.

Andreyev was reportedly trying to lay a wreath in Warsaw at a cemetery for Soviet soldiers in the city.

But he was left covered in red paint by the angry crowd surrounding him who were protesting against Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Footage of the incident was shared on Twitter by user @Exen.

Other clips online show the aftermath, with Andreyev stood in front of cameras humiliated.
