MOSCOW, June 15 (Xinhua) -- Russia on Sunday accused Ukrainian acting Foreign Minister Andriy Deshchytsya of "going beyond the bounds of proprieties" by hurling insults at Russian President Vladmir Putin during a violent protest outside its embassy in Kiev, Ukraine.
A footage filmed by local media showed that Deshchytsya made insulting remarks on Putin when talking to protesters who attacked the Russian embassy in Kiev Saturday.
While lambasting Deshchytsya for his insulting remarks, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov protested to Kiev about Saturday's violence happening outside its embassy in Ukraine.
Meanwhile, head of the International Committee of Russian Parliament's lower house, or State Duma, Alexei Pushkov wrote on his Twitter Sunday that Ukrainian President Petro "Poroshenko should replace the foreign minister, who lacks control of himself. "
Deshchytsia explained Sunday that his remarks were made just as efforts to ease the tensions since the protesters were planning to set fire to the Russian embassy building.
Angry demonstrators overturned cars of the Russian embassy, smashed the building's windows and ripped up the Russian flag on Saturday evening, in revenge for the loss of 49 lives as a Ukrainian military transport plane was shot down by militias.
There are media reports alleging Russia had been supporting the Ukrainian insurgents with weaponry. The Russian Foreign Ministry on Saturday refuted relevant allegations as unacceptable.
