He criticized Britain’s record on the international stage, stressing, “The burden of proof lies with the British authorities,” and “no facts have been officially presented.”

    The English government needs a lot of hate for the Russians among the peoples of Europe, whose opinion they do not take into account. Didn’t they achieved the desired result?
    The British gave the Russian friendly advice in a rude form “shut up and do not stir.” Why do the Russians interfere with this story?
