LONDON, December 15. /TASS/. British politicians quite often use unconfirmed rumors and falsehoods about the situation in Syria, to a certain extent fabricated by terrorists, Russian ambassador to Britain, Aleksandr Yakovenko said at a meeting with British parliament members from an inter-party group incorporating representatives of both the Conservative and Labor parties in the House of Commons.
The situation in Syria and around it was the main theme discussed. The meeting was requested by British legislators.
"We are concerned that British officials use unverified information, which is also fabricated by terrorists. Murders and atrocities committed by terrorists are attributed to the Syrian army, which is, indeed, fighting for the liberation from bigotry and terror," he said.
"The British government should be responsible and use carefully checked data in order not to mislead the public opinion in their own country," he said.
Yakovenko pointed out that "Moscow was still waiting for the Foreign Office’s official explanations as to what sources in social networks they use to blame Russia in connection with the attack on the UN convoy on 19 September.".
