A group of demonstrators carrying Ukrainian flags and anti-Russian posters held a rally during the Russian-speaking community's Christmas celebration in Berlin on Tuesday.

The footage shows dozens of adults and children gathering outside the venue in the German capital to meet 'Father Frost' (Russian Santa Claus) and light the 'New Year' tree.

During the festivities, protesters gathered across the street. They were seen waving Ukrainian flags, holding anti-Russian placards, and chanting slogans such as 'Russia is a terrorist state' and 'Father Frost is a sponsor of terrorism'.

According to media reports, fences were set up around Russian House during the event, and local law enforcement officers were on duty nearby.

In Russian culture, Christmas is traditionally celebrated in January, following the New Year. Father Frost, or 'Ded Moroz' brings gifts to children on New Year's Eve.
