ARTEK (Yalta), July 7. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Ministry’s official spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has criticized the report on Russia by UK’s Defense Committee.
"Logics of the authors is peculiar, the report is very controversial and lists several cliches, banal statements about allegedly aggressive actions of Russia in Ukraine," Zakharova said. "At the same times, the authors note the depressing state of Russian-British relations - this is true. The report contains calls for restoring cooperation with Russia, which represents common sense," she added.
At the same time, the report calls for expanding EU’s sanctions against Russia. "It also contains an embarrassing reservation that after Brexit, the capability of London to insist on sanctions
will be put to the test," the diplomat continued.
"The report reflects the chaos and disorder of political thought in Great Britain. We are concerned with the level of competence of British analysts on Russia," Zakharova concluded.
On Monday UK’s Defense Committee published the report "Russia: Implications for UK defense and security" which outlines the analysis of relations between London and Moscow ahead of the NATO summit in Warsaw.
