The British guards and police to conduct unwarranted detention and questioning of Russian citizens. This is stated in the message of the Russian Embassy in London.

In depodesta stressed that among the detainees are citizens of Russia who arrived in the country legally — if you have a British visa.

“If you have any similar problems at the airports on arrival before or after passport control, inform the Embassy via email based on the confidentiality of records and prevent possible discriminatory approach by the British authorities against Russian citizens arriving in the UK,” say the diplomats.

At the end of March depodesta warned about the anti-Russian sentiment in the UK. The Embassy told about the possible increased attention of British law enforcement and intelligence services to the owners of Russian passports.

Relations between London and Moscow deteriorated sharply after poisoning with nerve substance of the former GRU officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia in English Salisbury. Britain blamed Russia. Moscow rejects the accusations for lack of evidence. On the background of the incident sparked an international scandal: London, United States and more than a dozen European countries have expelled Russian diplomats, Moscow has taken retaliatory measures.
