MOSCOW, 14 Nov â€” RIA Novosti. The Prime Minister of Britain Theresa may, in his annual speech on foreign policy, has strongly criticised Russia, accusing Moscow of undermining the international order.
According to the British leader, Russia interfered in the elections in other States, and also carried out a hacking attack on the military authorities of Denmark and Germany, and also tried to make the “information weapon”. Additionally, may stated that the Russian authorities were also directed to “sow discord in the West.”
“We know what you are doing and you won’t succeed,” said may.
British Prime Minister also accused Russia of illegal annexation of Crimea and also announced the participation of Russia in the conflict in the Donbass.
However, Mei in his speech, stated the need to improve relations with Russia.
Crimea became part of Russia after the Peninsula in March 2014 referendum in which 96.77% of voters of the Republic of Crimea and 95.6% of residents of Sevastopol voted for joining Russia. The referendum was held after a coup in Ukraine in February 2014.
Ukraine still considers Crimea its but temporarily occupied territory. However, the Russian authorities have repeatedly stated that the inhabitants of Crimea democratically in full compliance with international law and the UN Charter voted for reunification with Russia. As said the Russian leader Vladimir Putin, the Crimea issue “is closed permanently.”
