UK: Ambassador blasts comparing Russia to Nazis ‘unacceptable’

Russian Ambassador to the UK Alexander Yakovenko claimed it's 'unacceptable' to compare Russia to Nazi Germany during a press conference from the Russian Embassy in London on Thursday following Boris Johnson's remarks comparing Putin to Hitler.

The UK foreign minister recently commented on the upcoming World Cup championships in Russia saying Vladimir Putin "glorying in this sporting event" the sane as Adolf Hitler at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin.

"Top diplomats should be very cautious with the language," added Yakovenko.

Commenting the Skripal poisoning case the Russian ambassador said, "Britain has, without any evidence, blamed Russia of poisoning of three people and continues to refuse to cooperate. We cannot accept that," added the top diplomat.
