15.11.2017 - Embassy response to a BBC question

Q: Can you provide a response to the speech being made by Ciaran Martin this morning, in which Russia is accused of having attacked the UK’s media, telecommunications and energy sectors over the past year.\r\nA: We are concerned by such assertions since they mislead the British public in regard to the so called cyberattacks. We view these statements in the context of Prime Minister May’s “Banquet speech” which described Russia as number 1 threat for UK and the world community.

14.11.2017 - Comment by Russian MFA Spokesperson Maria Zakharova on the anti-Russian statements by Theresa May

We have taken note of the statement concerning Russia made on 13 November by the British Prime Minister Theresa May at the Lord Mayor’s Banquet 2017. This time our country is ranked first among “threats to the international community”, not just equal to others as before. Thus, the United Kingdom is making an attempt to claim global leadership in deterrence of Russia, in order to protect the existing world order, as PM Theresa May put it.

09.11.2017 - Response of the Embassy’s press-secretary to the media question on Syria

Question: On 7 November Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs Boris Johnson said in the House of Commons that “We must continue to emphasise to the Kremlin that, instead of blindly supporting a murderous regime—even after UN investigators have found the regime’s forces guilty of using sarin nerve gas, most recently at Khan Sheikhoun in April—Russia should join the international community and support a negotiated settlement in Syria under the auspices of the UN”. What is your comment on that?
