Britain has frozen us out, says Russian envoy

Political dialogue between Russia and Britain has gone and “the only sphere we have left is culture”, Russia’s ambassador to London has told The Times on October 26 2015.
Alexander Yakovenko said that diplomatic relations had sunk to new lows over the Syria and Ukraine conflicts after having “bit by bit fallen into decline” in recent years.
“Practically all political contacts were abruptly broken off at Britain’s initiative, political dialogue has gone at the top level, between the leaders,” he said. “At the ministerial level there is also stagnation. This began with the Syria conflict, but we felt it especially after the Ukrainian crisis.”
