Russia’s Ambassador to the UK Alexander Yakovenko wrote an open letter to the deputies of the British Parliament, condemning the statements of the Ministry of foreign Affairs of Boris Johnson. He earlier accused Russia of deliberate bombing of civilian targets in Syria.
In the letter, which is published on the website of the Russian Embassy, Alexander Yakovenko, said that ten days ago they asked the British foreign office proof of guilt of the Russian military. But London chose to ignore this requirement.
The Ambassador also recalled that British MPs are “falsely accused” Russia and the Syrian government of deliberately targeting civilians, and the Minister of foreign Affairs of great Britain Boris Johnson tried to accuse Moscow of committing “war crimes”.
Yakovenko added that Russia regards these allegations as “blatant lies”, which is designed to protect al-Nusra (terrorist group banned in Russia), and perhaps also the British military who are in Syria.
