KIEV, June 18 (Xinhua) -- Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on Wednesday proposed to parliament the dismissal of acting Foreign Minister Andriy Deshchytsia following a diplomatic row with Russia.

A footage filmed by local media showed that Deshchytsia made insulting remarks at Russian President Vladimir Putin when talking to protesters who attacked the Russian Embassy in Kiev on Saturday.

The Russian Foreign Ministry accused Deshchytsia of "going beyond the bounds of proprieties" and asked Kiev to dismiss him.

Poroshenko has appointed Pavlo Klimkin as the country's new top diplomat.

Klimkin, 46, is widely known as one of the authors of Ukraine's Association Agreement with the European Union.

The parliament will decide on the presidential proposals on Thursday.
