The Russian ambassador to Britain, Alexander Yakovenko, spoke toRT.com in a wide-ranging interview on February 12 discussing Russia-UK relations, the situation in Syria and the status of the Minsk-2 ceasefire process in eastern Ukraine, among other topics. The interview duration was 27 minutes.

Ambassador Yakovenko spoke to Sophie Shevardnadze, host of the Sophie&Co program on RT. Here is the program introduction to the interview:

Russia and the United Kingdom – these two powers, for centuries, have been tied into the most complicated relations: enemies at one time and yet allies and cooperators at another. But now the temperature between the two is steadily going down, with Britain leading the anti-Russian sanctions and, just recently, coming out with allegations of Moscow’s involvement with the 2006  death in Britain of former FSB agent Alexander Litvinenko. What’s pushing London to make such statements? Does the Cold War-like vector of Prime Minister Cameron’s policy resonate with UK public opinion? How much is this public opinion is shaped by the voice of mainstream media? And, finally, is there a hope for a thaw?

We ask the Russian Ambassador to the UK. Alexander Yakovenko is on Sophie&Cotoday.
