The vandals spray-painted on the Consulate's wall in Polish language: "Ukraine is OUN-UPA, Waffen SS Galitzien," and drew scaffolds next to the coat of arms of Ukraine. An inscription "Raus" ("Get out" in German) was also spray-painted, as well as a Nazi swastika and an inscription in Russian meaning "No", the report by Rzeszow News wrote.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the Ukrainian police and SBU security service busted a gang which specialized on committing acts of provocative nature, including violent crimes, aimed to seed ethnic hatred. The perpetrators were arrested as they were preparing yet another attack, this time in Zakarpattia region, where they plotted to blow up a Hungarian monument amid the latest tensions between Hungary and Ukraine over the language clause in Ukraine's new education law.
