MOSCOW, February 8. /TASS/. London would like to exert pressure on Russia but it is starting to come to grips with the fact that such policies are ineffective, Russian Ambassador to the UK, Alexander Yakovenko told the Rossiya 24 news channel on Thursday.

"The British would like to continue turning the heat up on us because they're generally dissatisfied with three things," he said. "First, they are disgruntled with our policies in Syria. Second, they'd like to wield pressure on us regarding the Minsk accords. Quite naturally, their main line consists of supporting Kiev, although they would benefit from a dramatic shift in stance on the basic documents signed previously, I am referring to the Minsk protocols. And then, of course, there’s pressure over Crimea."

Yakovenko noted that still there were clear signs that UK politicians were becoming aware that talking to Russia this way is futile.

"Sooner or later, rational ideas will penetrate British officialdom and I think our relations will begin to improve then," he said. "Russia's successful policy, including the one in the Middle East, provides a guarantee for this."
