Moscow, Oct 17 (Prensa Latina)

Russia has requested that the United Kingdom provide the location of its commandos in Syria, in order to prevent armed incidents.

The Russian Ambassador to Britain, Alexander Yakovenko, said that the request was made some time ago, in order to avoid casualties among the British special forces as a result of the actions of the Russian air force, but the request has yet to be answered.

The House of Commons has falsely accused Russia of bombings against civilians in Aleppo, and the British Foreign Office has gone so far so as to hold Moscow accountable for war crimes.

The Kremlin has sent the United Kingdom a request to produce concrete evidence of these alleged crimes.

Media reports state that one of the reasons for the failure of the agreements – reached in Geneva on September 9th – for a ceasefire in Syria is the alleged presence of commandos in Aleppo, Syria.

Russia Today (RT), one of the most active channels in the condemnation of the excesses committed by terrorists and the coverage to these given by the West, has stated that London has frozen all its bank accounts in the UK, a decision without the possibility of appel.

Margarita Simonyan said on her Twitter account that all the news agency’s accounts had been frozen. ‘Long live freedom of expression,’ she said.

Simonyan has recently warned that Russian media in Western countries is working under extreme pressure.

‘It seems that with the victory of Brexit in UK, London has also left behind the principles of freedom of the press,’ said the spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, on her Facebook page.

‘As the Russian saying goes, ‘Into a new life without bad habits,’ said Zakharova, after the Foreign Affairs Committee of the EU said that they considered RT and the Sputnik news agency to be Russian propaganda elements.

The freezing of the media agency’s assets occurred shortly after the BBC complained that RT had taken away its audience, and practically urged the government to solve the problem.
