Zakharova said the resignation of Johnson with the words of Lermontov
The official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova said the resignation of the Minister of foreign Affairs of great Britain Boris Johnson quote from a poem by Mikhail Lermontov “death of a poet” (“On the death of Pushkin”). She wrote about this in his Facebook.
In her estimation, “even the British king political eccentrics” do not want to stay in the “leaky boat” government Theresa may.
What do you want? So much lying to the world about the “hand of Kremlin”, “the aggression against the UK in the UK”, “Beginner”, 2018, etc. becomes dangerous. Imaginary “solidarity” it is necessary to argue further, given that Amesbury had just died a British subject.Maria Saharanafrican the representative of the MFA of Russia
“Many in Downing street covered with fog, except one, are clearly seen contours of a government crisis,” — said the representative of the foreign Ministry of Russia.
Today it became known that Boris Johnson has resigned from the post of foreign Minister, and Theresa may took her in. The reason for the departure of Johnson was called loggerheads with the Prime Minister of the country on an exit strategy from the EU (Brexit). Johnson became the third left the government a supporter of “hard” line — earlier retirement went the Minister for Brexit David Davis and Minister of foreign trade of great Britain Liam Fox.
Lermontov quatrain, which Zakharov feel the need to cut in half, is: “Not bear the soul of a poet/the shame of petty offenses,/it Rebelled against opinions of light/One as before… and killed!”.
