ST. PETERSBURG, June 7. /TASS/. Moscow has no intention to change its ways at the United Kingdom’s demand, Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.
"No, we won’t change our ways," he said.
Peskov pointed out that Russia sought mutually beneficial relations with Great Britain that would be based on respect for each other’s interests. "There is nothing wrong in this pattern of behavior," he said. "At the same time, there are some other things that damage bilateral relations, and we can see the consequence, including the state Russia-UK relations are in at the moment," the Kremlin spokesman emphasized.
On Thursday, British Prime Minister Theresa May’s spokesperson said that relations between London and Moscow to a large extent depended on Russia. "We will continue to engage with Russia on matters of international security as this is in the UK’s national interest ... however the PM has made clear on numerous occasions we can only have a different relationship if Russia changes its behavior," she said.
