TASS: British MPs have blind trust in what their secret services say16 May 2018 | 01:26 | FOCUS News Agency
He spoke to reporters after a meeting with members of an inter-party group of MPs for relations with Russia.
"There’s an impression they simply put blind trust in the information spread by their intelligence services and in the claims of the UK counterintelligence chief Andrew Parker," Yakovenko said, answering a question from TASS. "Sadly enough, they rely on this information."
"They distrust our arguments but there are certain things that fall into the realm of international law and these things make up the strong aspect of our argumentation," he said. "Still they rely on their own notions and the information dished out to them at the official level."
"British MPs mostly consume the information from newspapers and from media leaks and think along the lines of cliches, and that’s why the discussion with them was rather tense," Yakovenko said.
