LONDON, February 2. /TASS/. British lawmakers will come to Moscow on March 6 in a bid to establish dialogue on restoring relations with Russia, UK Conservative Party lawmaker Daniel Kawczynski told TASS on Tuesday.
"We are going to Moscow on March 6," the lawmaker said. "And then the group after discussion with the politicians in Moscow will split off in three and will go to the Caucasus, Saint Petersburg and Kaliningrad. So, we are seeking to engage with politicians in Moscow but also seeking to understand what is going on in others parts of Russia."
According to Kawczynski, the foreign affairs committee of the House of Commons will make a report on Russia-UK relations after the visit.
"We have formed a friendship group with Russia (in the parliament)," the lawmaker said. "And my colleague Sir Edward Leigh is a chairman of this friendship group and I am the vice-chairman. We a going to meet with the Russian ambassador Alexander Yakovenko today to have dialogue and discussions with him on numerous matters but ultimately to demonstrate that some of us here want to work towards better relations."
"I am extremely concerned over anti-Russian hysteria which is growing in my country and around the West," Kawczynski said. "Russia is a very important permanent member of the UN Security Council, a country with inordinate amount of military capability, a country with whom we can trade with and that is why it is important that those of us who understand importance of Russia and who see Russia as a potential ally."
"We continue to engage with the Russian government at every opportunity to demonstrate to them that there are people here who understand the importance of good relations with Russia," he said.
