The enormous blue and yellow flag, which was subsequently carried by passing vehicles, was claimed by the campaign group Led By Donkeys.
Four individuals have been apprehended after the Led By Donkeys campaign group painted a large Ukrainian flag on the road outside the Russian Embassy in London. The 500 square metres blue and yellow flag was created on Bayswater Road in London on Thursday, with the group asserting responsibility and stating that it was done to commemorate the first anniversary of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on Friday.

“The existence of a massive Ukrainian flag outside his embassy in London will serve to remind him of that,” the group stated, refuting claims made by the Russian leader and his supporters that Ukraine is not an independent state and lacks the right to self-determination.
The activists, who are known for their colossal billboards featuring politicians’ tweets, have employed the flag as their most recent publicity stunt. The Metropolitan Police disclosed that three men and one woman were arrested on suspicion of obstructing the highway and criminal damage.
“At 8:45 this morning, authorities visited Kensington Palace Gardens, where the paint had been splashed on the road,” the Met tweeted. “Three males and one female were detained on suspicion of obstructing the highway and criminal damage. They are currently being held in custody.”
According to the campaign group, they created the flag by pouring 170 litres of yellow paint on the eastbound lane and a comparable amount of blue paint on the westbound lane, which was subsequently spread along the road by passing vehicles.
The activists also stated that the paint used for the flag was high-quality, non-toxic, solvent-free, eco-friendly, and fast-drying edible paint specially designed for road art.
