(MENAFN) The Russian Foreign Ministry has issued a warning that severing diplomatic ties with the United Kingdom could be a possibility due to the significant involvement of London in the ongoing conflict in Ukraine. While acknowledging that such a measure would be extreme, Moscow suggests that the UK's actions in Ukraine may lead to this outcome.
According to a report by The Wall Street Journal, British special forces, including the SAS and SRR regiments from the British Army, as well as the SBS units from the Navy, are operating in close proximity to the front lines in Ukraine. Although the British personnel are not directly engaging in combat against Russian troops, the report alleges that their presence has had a guiding influence on Ukrainian special forces, resulting in sabotage operations targeting Russian logistical infrastructure such as railways, airfields, and fuel supply nodes.
In response to a query from RT regarding the article, the Russian Foreign Ministry commented on Friday, stating that it is well aware of London's consistent efforts to provide military assistance to what it refers to as the "neo-Nazi regime" in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine.
Considering these allegations, the Russian Foreign Ministry implies that if the claims made by The Wall Street Journal are verified, it could lead to the severing of diplomatic relations with Britain. While the ministry characterizes this as an extreme measure, it underscores the seriousness with which Russia views the UK's alleged involvement in Ukraine and its implications for the bilateral relationship.
