Newsline: UK Foreign Calls for Protests Outside Russian Embassy

UK Foreign Minister Boris Johnson’s calls to stage demonstrations outside Russia’s Embassy in London over Moscow’s campaign in Syria are embarrassing, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said. Earlier in the day, Johnson blasted Moscow for its actions in Syria and urged people to protest outside the Russian Embassy in London. The minister also called on anti-war groups to picket the Russian Embassy in the city. “Apparently, Boris Johnson has moved from words to actions and used a weapon, with which he threatened Russia — embarrassment. We find it embarrassing,” Zakharova told RIA Novosti.
