The suspect said he did that in retaliation for Russia killing civilians. Of course, NPCs that were in the area celebrated the act. To them, any Russian that works for the government or has not condemned Putin is a kulak.
He said: “I just done this to create a safe corridor for the Russian ambassador to leave Ireland, go through Poland then walk through Europe.”
Russia was today criticised for vowing to create ‘safe’ routes for refugees even though those routes would only carry them to Russia and its ally Belarus, while there were also accusations of a civilian corridor from the port city of Mariupol were mined by Russian troops.
Pointing at the picture of a family killed by Russian shelling the driver says: “I done it for this lady here and her kids who were killed in Irpin. It really affected me last night, I’m doing it for them.
“So I want the ambassador and his colleagues to leave this free country.”
“In Ireland we like justice,” he said, as he handed out printed copies of the picture.
Bystanders praised his actions and said he was “a credit”.
He handed the picture to a garda before he was arrested, and went with the gardaí into the garda car without complaint, saying: “Send the ambassador home”, to shouts of “Bravo!” from the bystanders.
"I’ve done my bit, lads. It’s about time the rest of Ireland done their bit,” he said as he was led away.
