16.12.2017 - Embassy press secretary answers media question on sea cables

Q: For a week already retired and serving British servicemen have been talking about the possibility of Russia severing UK’s underwater internet cables in case of war. How serious is that? A: Such sensationalist statements can cause but regret, as they are fanning the flames for the unwholesome sentiment created by PM Theresa May’s “banquet speech”. Instead of discussing European security, an important issue for all the European nations including UK, London keeps speculating on numerous mind-boggling scenarios of a hypothetical conflict. The reasons look obvious – but even if the UK military needs money so badly, why intimidate people this much?

15.12.2017 - Embassy press secretary comment on Chris Bryant’s “open letter to Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson”

Q: Do you have any comments on the “open letter to Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson” by Chris Bryant MP in The Times, alleging that the Russian hosts would “discombobulate” him on his forthcoming visit to Moscow? A: We deplore the attitudes shown by Mr Bryant – especially taking into account his current position as the chairman of the all-party parliamentary group on Russia, which is meant to contribute to dialogue between Britain and Russia, not undermine it. These are definitely not the best parting words for the Foreign Secretary heading to Russia soon. We expect a more constructive approach from the British side on this important visit, and, as the recent visit of Sir Alan Duncan to Moscow proved, a responsible dialogue is possible.
