WW3 Scenario: Russia, UK Gunning Against Each Other
Russia is gunning against other world powers. The nation just accused UK with “colossal hypocrisy” while relations with the United States seem to degrade further as the Syria truce falls apart.Advertisement
Russia called out the hypocrisy of the government report that put Russia under scrutiny in relation to human rights. Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova doubted the “objectivity” of the report and even accused Britain of playing host to “terrorists.” Specifically, the Foreign Office (FCO) report linked Russia to a “crackdown on civil society” and the “severe deterioration” in human rights in Ukraine.
According to BBC, the report added that human rights state in Russia only worsened and that the country’s rule of law “remained inconsistent and arbitrarily applied.” The media controlled by the state is also “overwhelmingly emphasized a pro-government narrative.”
“Although space for independent media continued to exist, most notably online, a small number of individuals faced criminal prosecution for posting critical comments,” the report added.
Russia refuted the claims of the report.
“This report is, of course, an example of colossal hypocrisy,” said Zakharova.
“To claim the role of a teacher, you have to have, if not an impeccable, then at least a more or less decent reputation. And London’s reputation, to be honest and fair, is badly tarnished.”
This is not the only issue plaguing Russia. Only just two months following the supposed cooperation with the United States to establish ceasefire in Syria – it appears the relation is degrading. Russia just accused US of “appeasing” its regional partners by playing blind to the presence of terrorists within opposition forces it supports against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.U.N. envoy Staffan de Mistura said that the truce “is still alive, but barely.”
“The perception is that it could collapse at any time,” The Washington Post quoted the official.
