Russia threatens UK over Berezovsky

Yury Fedotov the
Russian ambassador to
Britain revealed he had written to Home Secretary
John Reid over Boris Berezovsky’s claim that he is plotting to overthrow
Russian President Vladimir Putin.

A copy of a
warrant for Mr Berezovsky's arrest, signed by the Russian prosecutor-general,
was enclosed with the letter, along with a warning that
Britain's relationship with Russia could deteriorate to a Cold War level.  

Mr Fedotov said “A
speedy resolution would help to improve, to develop, our relations even
further. But the absence of a reaction would have an impact on bilateral

authorities have launched an inquiry into his comments, with the Home Office
examining whether they could undermine his refugee status and Scotland Yard
considering whether he breached anti-terrorism laws by inciting a coup.

The Russian
ambassador's remarks will have alarmed
Downing Street at a time when ministers and senior officials are
increasingly concerned about Russian's assertiveness on the international
stage. (source)


I think the
British Government needs to get used to the idea that every Nation in the world
is now going to try it on after the humiliation at the hands of the Iranians.

Tony Blair and
Gordon Brown need to decide exactly how they are going to reassert Britains
influence in world politics, because the standard trick of throwing money at the
problem wont make it go away, or are they going to let us further degenerate to
the same level of influence as Zimbabwe.


NuLab –
from the inside out.
