LONDON, October 12. /TASS/. It was extremely unprofessional of Britain’s foreign secretary, Boris Johnson, to say he supports the idea of demonstrations outside the Russian embassy in London over Syria, British political scientist, editor-in-chief and publisher of the Politics First magazine Marcus Papadopoulos· told TASS on Tuesday.
"Boris Johnson’s comment about support in protest outside of the Russian embassy is extremely unprofessional, is extremely unsuitable for Foreign Secretary to make. There are not the comments Foreign Secretary of any country in the world should be coming out with," he said. "Because Britain has diplomatic relations with Russia and a British Foreign Secretary should not be supporting protests outside an embassy in Britain."
"Also we can say there are a lot of hostile people towards Russia living in London, they ranged from Ukrainian fascist to Muslims who are Islamists. Those sort of people potentially posed a security threats to Russian diplomats and their families. Something happens to Russian diplomat or to his wife, or to his children then Boris Johnson ultimately be responsible because he has encouraged hostilities towards to the Russian embassy and that must not be forgotten," Papadopoulos stressed.
"I'd certainly like to see demonstrations outside the Russian embassy. Where is the Stop The War Coalition at the moment? Where are they?," Johnson said at an emergency debate in the House of Commons on Tuesday. He backed Ann Clwyd, a Labour MP, who called for worldwide protests against Russia’s operation in Syria.
