MOSCOW, July 14. /TASS/. Boris Johnson’s appointment as Britain’s foreign secretary will be good for better relations with Russia, Chairman of Russia’s State Duma foreign affairs committee Aleksey Pushkov has said.
"Boris Johnson has become head of Britain’s Foreign Office," Pushkov tweeted. "I would like to believe that he will not have a painful anti-Russian syndrome of his predecessor."
At the same time, the lawmaker expressed criticism of former Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond’s activities.
"Unlike foreign ministers of France, Germany and Italy, Hammond totally rejected any ties with Russia," he wrote on his account. "As a result, London found itself behind both on Syria and Ukraine."
On July 13, Boris Johnson, the former London mayor and leader of the Leave campaign, was made foreign secretary of the United Kingdom by new Prime Minister Theresa May.
Johnson has replaced Philip Hammond who becomes chancellor.
