British royals told to keep away from Russian embassy: Envoy

MOSCOW: The Russian ambassador to the United Kingdom said the British royal family had been advised not to have any contact with the Russian embassy in London, Izvestia newspaper reported.
When asked by Izvestia if there was any connection with King Karl IIIRussian ambassador Andrei Kelin said: “No, and I know that members of the royal family are advised not to maintain or come into contact with the Russian embassy.”
Buckingham Palace could not be immediately reached for comment outside of normal business hours.
Russia’s relations with West is at its worst since the Cold War low after President Putin ordered the invasion of Ukraine and the West has imposed the harshest sanctions in modern history on Russia.
Kelin said most politicians in the West have become “one-day butterflies” who give little thought to the future and are obsessed with futile political scoring.
“This leaves them wondering what will happen in the next month and a year with Ukraine,” Kelin said. “After all, if things continue like this, Ukraine will become a failed nation, a black hole that needs to be patched.”
He said that Russian businessmen, including the so-called oligarchs who made huge fortunes after the collapse of the Soviet Union, no longer see London as a safe haven.
“Now no one sees the UK as a safe haven; it turns out it’s a haven for pirates,” he said.
