Russia: British Ambassador Bronnert arrives at Foreign Ministry in Moscow

British Ambassador to Russia Deborah Bronnert arrived at Foreign Ministry in Moscow on Thursday.

Footage features Bronnert's car pulling up and the diplomat entering the building of the Russian Foreign Ministry while a protest took place outside. Protesters can be seen chanting: 'Britain is a terrorist country'.

On Wednesday, spokesperson for Russia's MOFA Maria Zakharova announced that Moscow would summon the British ambassador and provide evidence of Britain's involvement in the sabotage of the Nord Stream pipelines and the Sevastopol Bay attack.

"Of course, there is no doubt of the involvement of British intelligence services in the terrorist attack on the Black Sea Fleet base in Sevastopol on October 29 and the sabotage of the Nord Streams," Zakharova said.

Moscow said it was suspending its role in the Joint Coordination Centre (JCC) on Saturday, October 29, after claiming Kiev had used drones to attack its Black Sea Fleet in Sevastopol.

"In view of the terrorist act carried out by the Kiev regime on 29 October this year with the participation of UK experts against the ships of the Black Sea Fleet and civilian vessels involved in ensuring the security of the 'grain corridor', the Russian side suspends its participation in the implementation of agreements on the export of agricultural products from Ukrainian ports," the agency said in a statement.

On the same day, the UK Defence Ministry on Twitter described the Russian accusations as false.

"To detract from their disastrous handling of the illegal invasion of Ukraine, the Russian Ministry of Defence is resorting to peddling false claims of an epic scale. This latest invented story, says more about the arguments going on inside the Russian Government than it does about the West," the statement said.

Later on Wednesday, Defence Ministry spokesperson Igor Konashenkov said that Russia had decided to resume participation in the grain deal.

He claimed that, thanks to the work of the United Nations and Turkey, it had been possible to get 'guarantees from Ukraine that it wouldn't use the corridor or its ports for future military operations.
