MOSCOW, November 1. /TASS/. MI5 Director General Andrew Parker is trapped in his own propaganda-created world, Russia’s embassy in the UK tweeted on Tuesday.
Director General of MI5 Parker interview for @Guardian: saddened to see a professional trapped to his own propaganda-created world pic.twitter.com/kw5QnUrzHq— Russian Embassy, UK (@RussianEmbassy) 1 ноября 2016 г.
In his interview with the Guardian, the MI5 chief said that Russia poses a growing threat to Great Britain as it "is using its whole range of state organs and powers to push its foreign policy abroad in increasingly aggressive ways - involving propaganda, espionage, subversion and cyber-attacks." "Russia is at work across Europe and in the UK today. It is MI5’s job to get in the way of that," he said.
Later in the day, Russian president’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov refuted Parker’s remarks. "This is completely untrue, we cannot agree with it at all," he said.
The Kremlin spokesman said he can agree with Parker "on only one point: Russia is really ‘using its whole range’ of opportunities but, contrary to what he [Parker] said, all possibilities envisaged by international law to promote and defend its interests abroad."
"Russia has always been doing this, being guided by the principles of mutually beneficial relations and seeking to build good-neighborly and mutually advantageous ties with all of its partners," the spokesman explained.
