Unidentified assailants shot at a Ford Mondeo belonging to the administration of Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, administration spokesman Viktor Khrekov said.
A senior official from the Health Ministry was allegedly riding in the car on Thursday evening when the attack happened; however, neither he, nor the driver was injured.
The shooting occurred on Moscow’s Novodanilovskaya Embankment at around 6:00 p.m. Moscow time. “The car’s driver took the passenger away and then returned to where the incident occurred,” Khrekov said.
A police source said that there were two gunmen involved and they damaged the car’s rear window.
