The diplomats say "another anti-Ukrainian action of local pro-Russian politicians in the city of Verona, according to a scenario written by Kremlin puppeteers, has already aroused outrage not only from the Ukrainian community of Italy, but also from many Italian friends of Ukraine, who express support for our state."
