ATHENS – The notorious anarchist group Rouvikonas, responsible for dozens of attacks and vandalism on a series of targets across the city, showed its disdain for Turkey with tensions and war talk rising between the countries, hitting the Turkish Embassy with red paint balls.
The assault was carried out in the well-to-do Psychiko district, the Greek capital’s Diplomat Row, said the business newspaper Naftermporiki. Rouvikonas had earlier went after the Israeli Embassy, throwing pamphlets on the road outside and on the grounds.
The vandalism at the Turkish Embassy was done by some 15 people who then, in the group’s fashion, ran away.
They earlier had even invaded the grounds of Parliament and the Defense Ministry but police and security have not gone after them during the attacks and critics said the ruling Radical Left SYRIZA, riddled with anarchist and terrorist sympathizers, is in their corner.
Consul-General Oya Yazar told Anadolu Agency (AA) that no one was injured in the incident, but windows in the consulate’s waiting room were broken.
