MOSCOW, February 10. /TASS/. Russia wants Britain to play a more constructive role in Ukrainian and Syrian settlement, Russian Ambassador to the UK Alexander Yakovenko said in an interview aired by the Rossiya-24 TV news channel on Friday.
"Of course, we would like to see Britain playing a more constructive role in Ukraine," he said.
According to Yakovenko, with regard to Britain Moscow "has to pursue a policy" aimed at solving "pressing issues of Russia's foreign policy".
"This concerns what we consider as burning issues with the British, meaning first of all the Middle Eastern settlement: we want the British to change their position, to join efforts to counter terrorism in this part of the world, want them to get more involved in humanitarian operations. Much has been said about Aleppo, whereas now that people there need help, the British are not in sight, unfortunately."
