police have responded to an alleged explosion heard in Glover Park, Washington, D.Cnear the Russian embassy.

Several people who heard the blast took to social media to ask about it, when police officers and the Secret Service reportedly arrived and searched the area.

There’s no official word on what caused the blast, which was also reportedly heard in Cathedral Heights, but it could have been a blown electrical transformer.

Demonstrators gathered in Glover Park last Thursday in front of the Russian Embassy, ​​where they held up flags and signs and called for an end to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

One of the demonstrators’ signs read “Putin Burn in H-ll” and another read “Never again”.

The demonstrators carried Ukrainian flags in addition to American flags.

“(Russian President Vladimir) Putin is a tyrant,” one protester told WTOP. “And the fact that he’s allowed to invade another sovereign country is absolutely disgusting. And that has to be stopped.”

Thousands of pro-Ukraine protesters also marched to the White House on Sunday, urging the Biden government to do more as Russian forces attempted a siege of the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv.

There is no official word on what caused the blast as the excitement follows ongoing daily protests near the White House as well as protests in Glover Park.

“First of all, I want all civilized countries to unite and separate Russia from Swift,” one protester told Fox News. Second, “help close the skies” and third, “spread the word because this is just the beginning of World War III and we don’t want that to happen.”

Many US cities — and other major cities around the world — have seen similar pro-Ukrainian rallies.
