05.03.2018 - Embassy’s Press Officer reply to a question on the situation in Eastern Ghouta

Q: According to the Downing Street spokesperson, Prime Minister Theresa May and US President Donald Trump “agreed that the overwhelming responsibility for the heart-breaking human suffering lay with the Syrian regime and Russia”. How does it relate to the real situation on the ground and Russia’s efforts in bringing an end to suffering of the population in Eastern Ghouta? A: There are at least three reasons why we cannot accept these allegations. Firstly, the UN Security Council resolution 2401 aimed at alleviating suffering of the people in Eastern Ghouta calls upon all the countries with influence in Syria, including the United Kingdom and the United States, to pressure warring sides to end the fighting.

27.02.2018 - Embassy's Comment on the Donbass reintegration law

Q.: How would you assess the absence of the official reaction of the UK as regards to the “Donbass reintegration law” that has entered into force? A.: We cannot speak for the British side, but the scandalous law on so-called “reintegration of Donbass” is a consequence of the destructive policy of the Ukrainian government over the past four years since the coup d’etat in February 2014. It is commonly known that the UK and other Western countries have been supporting for all these years the authorities in Ukraine by financing, delivering weapons and sending military advisers to train Ukrainian military. So it comes as no surprise that London keeps total silence on this issue.
