Ukraine's president has condemned an overnight attack on the Polish Consulate in a western city that appeared to involve a shell fired from a grenade launcher.

Petro Poroshenko has ordered extra protection for consulates and embassies in Ukraine following the incident in Lutsk, according to a statement posted Wednesday on Facebook by Poroshenko spokesman Svyatoslav Tsegolko.

No one was injured in the attack, which took place in the early hours of the morning.

Polish Consul Krzysztof Sawicki told the Polish Press Agency that "this was probably a grenade launcher." Poland's Foreign Ministry said in a statement that it had summoned the Ukrainian ambassador over the incident.

Several Polish sites, including at least three war memorials, have been targeted by vandals in western Ukraine this year.
