Russian ambassador in London Alexander Yakovenko said that Britain practically suspended the dialogue with Russia and has refused to cooperate in the bombed sites "Daash" and cooperation in the establishment of relations between Russia and the "Free Army" in Syria.
Yakovenko said in an interview with the newspaper "The Times" the British that "all political contacts practically severed at the initiative of the British side, and political dialogue at the summit level faded", pointing out that this has occurred against the backdrop of the Syrian and Ukrainian crises.
Russian Ambassador pointed out that the British Foreign Office refused a special request by to provide intelligence data to guide air strikes to targets "Daash" in Syria as well as a second request on the establishment of relations with the "Free Syrian Army" to fight militants "Daash" more effectively.
Yakovenko added that contacts at the ministerial level also stumbled after the outbreak of the Ukrainian crisis, pointing to the low number of staff of the Russian Embassy in London because the British government refused to grant visas to Russian diplomats.
The Russian diplomat said that the British Conservative Party, bears the responsibility for the deterioration of relations between the two countries, pointing out that the party's statement is "Russia is a major threat to Britain" worth the risk "Daash".
Yakovenko stressed that he intends to hold a meeting with the new leader of the Labour Party Jeremy Corbin, who was considered the last head of the party winning the elections "an extraordinary development" .anthy 29 / W 23
