Activists, opposing results of the US presidential elections and Donald Trump as the US President, attacked an abandoned police car and smashed store windows in downtown Oakland, California.

Videos of the incidents were published online. According to reports, the windows of the Oakland Chamber of Commerce, local businesses and City Hall were smashed by protestors, who also set fire to the ground floor of the chamber of commerce.

Reportedly, a police helicopter hovered above the protestors. The assembly was declared unlawful by police, which also demanded to dissolve it.

People also set fire to trash bins in the streets, smashed the windows of an abandoned police car and set fire to the vehicle.

According to reports, thousands people are protesting against results of the presidential elections all over the US, including Oakland, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, DC, Seattle, Los Angeles and Austin.

Meanwhile, spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, commented on the mass protests in the US. She believes that these actions will not spill over into full-scale riots. Zakharova noted that there is nothing surprising in the fact that the protests erupted as US citizens were involved in the election campaign, built on antagonism of the candidates’ teams.

“It should be understood that though a few hours before the election the candidates themselves confessed to each other in love, they divided people into different camps. Huge funds were allocated for this,” the FAN news agency cited the words of Zakharova.

At the same time, the spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry stressed that it is an internal matter of the US, noting that all actions should be within the law.
