Ambassador of the Russian Federation: the crisis in relations with Britain is dangerously escalating

The current crisis in relations with Great Britain, connected with the case of the poisoning of the ex-colonel of the GRU, Sergey Skripal, is dangerously aggravated, leads RIA News the words of the Russian ambassador in London, Alexander Yakovenko.


Ambassador of the Russian Federation: the crisis in relations with Britain is dangerously escalating


This conflict is in fact escalating dangerously and disproportionately. Restraint and prudence are required,
Yakovenko said the publication Mail on Sunday.

Together, he said, the fears in London that Russia might launch a cyberwar against the United Kingdom are groundless.

The ambassador recalled that during the visit of the head of the British Foreign Ministry Boris Johnson to Moscow last December, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov invited him to hold consultations on cyber security. Similar events are already held with China, India and other states.

We want to talk with other players in the world arena to establish rules of conduct in cyberspace: what is allowed and what is not, what is aggression, how to react to incidents and so on. At the moment there is no answer. Thus, while Russia is showing itself constructively, the British parliamentarians and the media with the alleged connivance of the authorities are proposing cyber attacks against Russia. You will not hear such conversations in Moscow,
Yakovenko said, responding to a journalist’s request to provide guarantees that Moscow will not launch a cyber war against Britain.

Recall that in London they claim that the Russian authorities are involved in the flesh poisoning by the nerve agent. In this regard, British Prime Minister Theresa May announced a series of measures against the Russian Federation, including the expulsion of X-NUMX Russian diplomats and the freezing of all high-level bilateral contacts. On Saturday, the Foreign Ministry announced its reciprocal steps: a person recognized as persona non grata by an employee of the British Embassy, ​​in addition, the Russian Federation withdraws its consent to the opening and functioning of the British Consulate in St. Petersburg.

    The Naglosaks need to “bend” the GDP and the Russian Federation. Well, very, this sweet couple, they are prevented from "deciding the fate" of the rest of the world.

          In Belarus, for example, cooperation with Britain is limited to watching the film "Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson", and even that of what is with Livanov. And our oligarchs do not live in London, but in prison, or have already left there and are no longer oligarchs smile

        And it seems to me that everything is a bit banal, as soon as the same GDP proclaimed an amnesty for returning capital (once illegally withdrawn to the public, including the British), the depreciation of the ruble, low inflation. Sanctions that have largely liberated our market from the dominance of a foreign one, as they say, many factors came together. Amid all this, an outflow of capital from the British economy began, they say the amounts are measured in hundreds of billions. So they are looking for an official reason to freeze the accounts of various firms and holdings. Plus, the Americans are undoubtedly crushing.
        I think so.

          Of course, the obvious non-desire of Russia and China to finance the American elite and provide goods to the US public debt are fundamental root causes.
          But in this case, a whole plan has been developed to destroy Syria and Russian influence in the region. In addition, it is obvious to everyone that the US sanctions policy has failed! Therefore, the United States and Israel have been striking the Syrian military and state facilities with a clear periodicity and increasing activity. And to say that now they heed the warning of the Ministry of Defense of Russia and were “scared” at least short-sightedly. Here, just in the very subject, we have played the theatrical production of Great Britain and the USA with the poisoning of the Russian traitor Skripal and his daughter. Moreover, an analogue of the "Olympic Rodchenko" acts as a witness - defector Wil Mirzayanov, who was accused of treason, but was pardoned by Yeltsin and has been in the United States for more than 10 years. Now the OPCW leadership will be under tremendous pressure as a result of which the next "Powell test tube" will be born.

          And right - more action, less words
          The branches of the British Council in St. Petersburg and Yekaterinburg are closed. The FSB's explanatory work was successful: BS branch employees remove signs from offices.

    British parliamentarians and the media, with the alleged connivance of the authorities, offer cyber attacks against Russia. You will not hear such talk in Moscow,
    Well, there are different parliamentarians, including ours .. There are such things .. They say such things ... Even sites like ours, with bipolar opinions, nervously smoke aside .. laughing And in general I am silent about the media - one word, a language without bones ...

            She must speak the language in which they are read and watched. If people see white, and white is called black from the screens, then a normal person will watch the media where white is white, black is black. In our country, the majority of citizens are not GRU colonels who betrayed the country and consider this simply dismissal. So he is a traitor, not a retired person. Otherwise, it’s just a manipulation of public opinion.

    Like Carol’s: "The farther, the greater the wonder and the wonder." Personal IMHO. The moment when the conflict could be settled with a sharp slap in the face to the oglosaks is missed. What could be a slap in the face ?! A tough boycott of the Olympic Games ... for example ... or not a single rocket flown to the Shairat base .... or something else. But missed ... missed, unfortunately, irrevocably. And, now, we should be preparing for a full-scale war. Trading, first of all. After, if we start by giving our positions in it, then to a large number of local wars on our borders. So, gentlemen, couch experts, get ready to exchange a soft sofa for a wet trench ... And enjoy walking in kirszach .... which many people dream of here ...

    This "crisis" only slightly worried British banks, the "foggy" real estate market and education for snobs, as well as customers all from the "RF" ... It would be better for Russia to completely nullify the relationship with the "cradle of democracy" ... And not because of Skripal, and for supporting terrorism in the Caucasus.

    In this regard, British Prime Minister Theresa May announced a number of measures against the Russian Federation, including the expulsion of 23 Russian diplomats and the freezing of all bilateral contacts at a high level.
    Sometimes it would be better to be silent than to speak, but Theresa seems to have lost her brakes. The time will come when this old snuffbox will remain out of work and write memoirs of how she personally poisoned Skripal, but for now ... she needs to diplomatically shut up her mouth

    This conflict is in fact escalating dangerously and disproportionately. Restraint and prudence are required,. You might think before that Russia was rude to England and was not judicious. It is possible to freeze a dangerous aggravation of the conflict with the overgrown only taking a firm stand. Until the breakup !!!

      It will soon come to the point that some Honduras will accuse Russia of stealing their obvious reserves from storage and expel our janitor from the Russian Embassy. In response, we will expel their janitor. And we will speak of symmetry and the settlement of relations. Only here that we have lost prestige are silent in our Foreign Ministry. We will answer so "symmetrically", wait for the accusation from Honduras

    We are late with the reaction. To hammer on everything, it is possible, but will there be any sense in it.
    Can from the very beginning a “torpedo” like Vladimir Volfovich had to be launched everywhere and everywhere? Do not let them turn around and weigh us with charges?
    Now we’ll just have to fight back and when a critical mass of lies and not joins from an Englishwoman can gain a critical mass, we will already be considered an “evil empire”!
    Again, you can put FIGs on them, but the world consists not only of our enemies alone! It was for those who doubted that it was necessary to FIGHT!
