MOSCOW, March 28. /TASS/. Russia’s attitude towards British people remains positive despite political tensions and disagreements sparked by London’s policy, the Russian embassy to the UK reported on its website on Tuesday.

According to the diplomatic mission, its employees learnt that some British students planning trips to Russia had been warned of a "possibility of anti-British sentiment or harassment caused by their nationality". "The Embassy would like to make it clear that despite the political tensions and disagreements caused by the hostile policies of the UK Government, the Russian attitude towards British people remains positive and hospitable," the statement says.

"Britons are welcome in Russia - on tourist trips and cultural exchanges, as students or business people and, of course, as guests of the FIFA World Cup. Come and discover the difference between how Russia is portrayed by the UK and how it is in reality," the embassy added.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup matches will be held on June 14 - July 15 in 11 Russian cities. The UK is in Group G together with Belgium, Panama and Tunisia.
