According to Zakharova, now universal weapon Johnson – shame it worked against him.
Commenting on the statements by the head of British diplomacy on his page on Facebook, Maria Zakharova joked that Boris Johnson has moved from words to deeds in terms of his “weapon.”
“Apparently, Mr. Johnson has moved from words to action and used firearms, which had previously threatened Russia, is a shame. And we really ashamed of him,” wrote the official representative of Russian foreign Ministry.

“I would like to see protests by people opposed to the war in Syria, the walls of the Russian Embassy. But where is the coalition “Stop the war”?”, – said Boris Johnson.
However, statements Johnson has caused confusion not only in the Russian foreign Ministry. So, a prominent British political analyst and chief editor and publisher of Politics First Marcus Papadopoulos also made a criticism of the policy.
