The Minister of foreign Affairs of great Britain has given an interview with The Sun, which is shy of estimates, said that the Russian President Putin and his generals “cynically killing innocent civilians in Syria.” After the newspaper placed a selection of photos from the traveling people, wounded children and boys bathing in a puddle in place of the funnel.

According to Johnson on peaceful neighborhoods in Syria first dumped one bomb, and when the rescuers arrive and begin to pull victims from the rubble, dropped the second bomb.

“We have evidence. We have good reason to believe that the Russians themselves are doing it,” said Johnson, without providing any evidence.

Johnson called the error the decision of the West not to meddle in 2013 and not to act against Assad, who has now opened the country for Russia.

The head of the British foreign office said that together with the US is now considering “several options” to increase pressure on Russia and to cease offensive operations in Aleppo. According to the newspaper, among such actions is the boycott of the world Cup in 2018, which will be held in Russia, on the part of all officials in the UK.

However, other embodiments of pressure in the article does not specify. Boris Johnson only added at the end: “the Most powerful weapon that can be used by the West against Russia, is a shame.The world’s attitude to Russia has increased, and I think now people believe that Russia risks becoming a pariah”.

We will remind that earlier already sounding accusations of the West, the press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov said that the Russian planes in Syria are solely against the terrorists and in the framework of international law, so can’t attack civilians. Has noted unfounded allegations of Western politicians and Russian foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
