13.09.2017 - Embassy Press Officer on contents of the HM Government’s future partnership with EU paper on foreign policy, defence and development

On 12 September the British Government has published a future EU partnership paper on foreign policy, defence and development.

In Paragraph 25 groundless statement about “Russian aggression in Ukraine” can be found. In Paragraph 31 Russia is being blamed for “invasion in Ukraine”. Moreover, Russia is accused of “illegal annexation of Crimea, and destabilizing activities in Ukraine” in the “Box 1” chapter of the document.

09.09.2017 - Briefing by Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova, Moscow, September 8, 2017

We have also taken note that the press service of the US State Department has repeatedly said that the only aim the US really seeks is to establish normal relations with Russia and, of course normalisation of the whole range of bilateral ties and contacts. How does everything that is happening on the territory of the Russian Federation building, which used to house the Russian General Consulate in San Francisco, contribute to normalising the situation? Why are people whom we do not know and whom no one has invited there engaged in who knows what? Do they also “contribute to the normalisation of bilateral relations”? Who sent them there? For what purpose? What are they doing there? Why do they feel like they can make themselves at home there? It is the property of the Russian Federation. What are US citizens doing there?
