Law enforcement authorities and the Secret Service swiftly arrived at Glover Park, Washington, D.C., in response to reports of a suspected explosion that occurred shortly before 1 a.m. on Thursday. The incident took place near the Russian Embassy, prompting concerns from residents who heard the blast. Individuals took to social media to inquire about the incident, while the area was thoroughly searched by law enforcement officials.

“U.S. Secret Service Uniformed Division officers immediately responded to reports of an explosion in the area of 34th St. and Massachusetts Ave NW. After thoroughly canvassing the area, no evidence of an explosion was found and officers cleared the scene,” according to a representative from the U.S. Secret Service, as stated to Fox News Digital.

The cause of the explosion, which was heard in Cathedral Heights as well, remained undisclosed by official sources. However, there is speculation that it could be attributed to a malfunctioning electrical transformer.

Among the signs displayed by the protesters, one expressed the sentiment “Putin Burn in Hell,” while another conveyed the message “Never Again.” The demonstrators further showcased Ukrainian flags in addition to American flags.

On Sunday, a large gathering of protesters, numbering in the thousands, who showed their support for Ukraine, embarked on a march towards the White House. Their primary objective was to call upon the Biden administration to take further action, in light of Russian forces’ ongoing attempt to besiege Ukraine’s capital city, Kyiv.

“First of all, I would like that all the civilized countries unite and cut Russia from Swift,” a protester said.
