A forensics team was filmed investigating a vehicle outside the Ukrainian embassy in London, on Saturday, which earlier in the day was believed to have been rammed by an unidentified man into a car belonging to the embassy, prompting police officers to use firearms and tasers before arresting the suspect.
The Ukrainian mission to the UK published a statement on their website, saying that the ambassador's vehicle was deliberately rammed.
"The police were called immediately, and the suspect's vehicle was blocked up. Nevertheless, despite the police actions, the attacker hit the Ambassador's car again," reads the statement.
"In response, the police were forced to open fire on the perpetrator's vehicle. The culprit was apprehended and taken to a police station," it adds.
The London Metropolitan Police wrote in a separate statement that a vehicle was driven at police officers after they arrived at the scene. They then apprehended the man after the discharge of firearms and taser, the statement reads.
