A group of activists projected the Ukrainian flag onto the Russian embassy in Washington DC, only for Russian officials to reportedly try and drown it out with a spotlight of their own.
The officials didn’t succeed, and the blue and yellow flag of Ukraine continued lighting up the side of the building.
Benjamin Wittes, who documented the entire thing on Twitter, compared the chase to a game of cat and mouse.
Wittes said the gesture was aimed at showing solidarity with refugees who lost their homes in Ukraine and those who have been killed during the war.
“It was the most invasive, obtrusive, obnoxious thing that I could do to Russian diplomats that does not molest or do violence to their prerogatives as diplomats in the United States."
Twitter enjoyed the show of solidarity, calling it “perhaps the most entertaining political statement ever.”
