War in Ukraine Drone attack in Crimea: British Ambassador summoned to the Russian Foreign Ministry

Russia’s Foreign Ministry on Thursday subpoenaed the British ambassador, who the Kremlin has accused of being behind a Ukraine-backed drone attack on its fleet in Crimea, the peninsula annexed by Moscow in 2014.

Deborah Bronnert spent about 30 minutes at the ministry, a Portal reporter noted. Nothing has been filtered out of the interview yet.

A handful of demonstrators had gathered outside the ministry, chanting anti-Britain slogans and holding up placards reading ‘Britain is a terrorist state’.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova on Wednesday announced the ambassador’s subpoena following the attack, which led to Russia on Saturday temporarily suspending its participation in the Black sea grain deal.
