Public altercation between UK and Russian foreign ministers

The spat came after UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, before arriving in Moscow Friday, criticized Russia over the war in the Ukraine, its alleged cyber attacks, its intervention in Syria and annexation of Crimea. His Russian counterpart, Sergey Lavrov said relations between the two countries were “at a low point” and scolded Johnson for airing differences “in front of a mic and at a tribune,” instead of face to face. Johnson, the first British foreign secretary to visit Russia in five years, warned that Britain is prepared and able to launch retaliatory cyber attacks if hackers continue to target the West, subvert elections and spread fake news.

      Great point! The one thing that the Brits could confront the Russians on (but they won’t because they are pro-Islamist with many Jew-hating elites in Britain) is their involvement with Syria-Hezbollah-Iran and their ongoing support for those who want to destroy Israel and are now right up against its borders.

      Russia has always been a whore when it came to pandering to Islamic countries away from its borders (for rich contracts) but brutal to the Islamic enclaves near its borders (for very good reasons).

      Russia must recognize their own horrible historical experiences with Islamists/terrorists and apply what they know to the situation in the Middle East… and then side with and ally itself to Israel who have experienced much worse but in a similar vein.

        I’m sure Russia has great respect for Israel, but siding with a friend of your enemy can be very complicated…

      I would think that the truth is at least somewhere in between. There is no way Mr Putin would not take advantage of a situation – and I wouldn’t expect him not to as I’m sure we would too. The onus is on the advanced countries who are targeted to protect themselves. They have many smart people and the technology to do so. I would also think that Putin was probably very surprised that the targets didn’t robustly push back or defend themselves.

    Just FYI in order to kill ypur stupid ignorance: it’s not about hysteria but real facts: your beloved Kremlin dwarf is doing all he is capable in order to subvert, fracture, weak and ultimately divide the West….Why, because that’s his hybrid answer to his frustration over sanctions and economical impotence; the Moscow dwarf still dreams of past Soviet times when the USSR was key player in world arena and refuses to accept that his underdeveloped Russia is a Third World country with nuclear heads embedded in Europe. Until he doesn’t accept this fact he’ll keep bothering around and sinking his Mongoloid Federation.
