Official apology on behalf of Mr Kostin to Mr Johnson in regards to previous comments made at MGIMO University


Mr Boris Johnson’s tenure as a Minister of Foreign Affairs fell during a period of significant deterioration of an already quite troubled Russo-British relations. Mr Kostin’s emotional comment made at the MGIMO University was caused by a deep disappointment regarding the crisis in the relations between our countries. However, this cannot serve as grounds for rude public statements.

Mr Andrey Kostin sincerely apologizes to Mr Boris Johnson.
