MOSCOW, September 4 (RIA Novosti) – Russia’s Foreign Ministry on Wednesday condemned, as a "barbaric act,” the shelling earlier that day of the country’s embassy in Damascus.

Lebanese and Syrian diplomats had said that a mortar shell, apparently launched by Syrian rebels, landed close to the Russian Embassy building on Wednesday.

"The Russian side … once again reiterates its call to those who can influence Syrian militants to exert their influence so that such barbaric acts cease,” a representative of the Foreign Ministry’s press service told RIA Novosti.

"The embassy continues to work as normal. There are no casualties among the embassy staff,” the representative said.
