BERLIN – German police on Friday found and destroyed an incendiary device that someone had put in a Berlin house where journalists from the Russian state agency RIA Novosti live. Reuters and DPA report that the facility did not ignite and no one was injured. According to the police, it is not clear whether this was an attempt to attack Russian journalists. There are also offices of other companies in the building.

“Circumstances are not yet known,” said police today, who originally arrived on the scene because someone had thrown a bottle at the building. It is not even clear whether the incident may be related to Russian aggression against Ukraine.

The RBB radio and television station wrote that the “suspicious construction with a bottle” was discovered by police in the skylight of a building in the Steglitz district on Friday afternoon, which lies southwest of the center of the German capital.

RIA Novosti described the found object as a canister wrapped in wires. She also stated that her correspondents lived in the house.

Another Russian agency, TASS, again interpreted the Russian Foreign Ministry’s request that Germany and other EU and NATO states take immediate measures to protect Russian journalists and their families.
