The United Kingdom does not rule out the possibility of strengthening sanctions against Russia because of the situation in Syria, the head of the British Foreign Ministry, Boris Johnson, said on the Sky News channel, Interfax reports.
"All this must be considered," Johnson said, responding to a reporter's question about the possibility of strengthening the sanctions regime against Russia because of the situation in Syria.
Referring to the recent bombing of a humanitarian convoy in Syria, he noted that "it is necessary to collect evidence and pass those responsible to justice."
Johnson is visiting Turkey, particularly heading for a camp for Syrian refugees in the south-east of the country.
Earlier it was reported that the products of the German retailer Metro and the French Auchan are freely sold in Crimean stores and delivered through the port of Kerch, in spite of the EU sanctions against Russia.
