According to police in Bucharest, Romania, a vehicle smashed into the Russian Embassy’s entrance, exploding ablaze and killing the vehicle’s operator in the accident. According to authorities, the vehicle was carrying volatile material canisters and it drove into the entrance of the Russian Embassy in Bucharest early Wednesday, exploding into a fire and ending up in the death of the driver of the car. The guy died almost instantly after slamming his vehicle into the embassy’s entrance in Bucharest, Romania’s capital, on Wednesday morning. As safety workers hurried across the scene, shocking footage revealed the vehicle destroyed by fire. The fire was put out by a firemen crew who rushed to the site, but the driver died on the spot, as per authorities.
Many containers containing combustible compounds were located within the vehicle, which will be inspected by forensic work specialists, according to the case attorney who appeared at the location of the incident. The collision is being investigated, and a postmortem will be performed, according to prosecutor Bogdan Staicu. Activists have attacked many Russian embassies throughout Europe in the recent month, displaying their outrage over the assault on Ukraine. The vehicle driver’s identification was not released by the investigators, who claimed they were still looking into the accident. Apart from the unlucky driver, no other staff member was wounded in the collision, according to the embassy.
Following the tragedy, the Russian embassy released an official statement expressing sympathy to the driver’s relatives, “We regret to report that whatever the driver’s motivations were. There is no question that he carried out this deed while under the impact of an anti-Russian fever sparked by a manufactured outrage in Bucha.” This is uncertain at the moment if the collision was accidental or planned, but according to local news, “sources familiar to the inquiry have indicated the operator purposely hit the building’s fence and lit himself on flames when he was ordered to exit the car.” Footage posted on social media shows the impact of the incident, with the silver car engulfed in flames and two guys, maybe police or security guards, rushing to assist the driver to escape to safety.
In a different demonstration opposing Vladimir Putin’s combat actions in Ukraine, a truck rammed through the entrance of the Russian Embassy in Dublin earlier in March this year. Romania said on Tuesday that it will fire ten Russian ambassadors for violating international standards, following a growing list of European nations that have been doing so in recent weeks.
