Moscow [Russia], Oct 6 (ANI/Sputnik): Director of the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service Sergey Naryshkin said on Saturday that he believed that Moscow and London would be able to restore friendly relations despite the recent major deterioration in bilateral relations.
"All wars end with peace," Naryshkin said in an interview with the Rossiya television channel when asked whether the two countries, which had fought against fascism together, will eventually overcome their differences.
The bilateral relations took a nosedive in March, when the United Kingdom claimed that Russia had orchestrated the poisoning of former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury. Moscow has refuted these allegations, arguing that London had not provided evidence to substantiate its claims.
On Thursday, London said that the Russian military intelligence service GRU was "almost certainly" responsible for a number of cyberattacks on political institutions, media outlets and companies around the world. Moscow has repeatedly denied all allegations about its involvement in any cyberattacks, with Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova saying that the recent claims were a part of yet another anti-Russia campaign.
