The Russian defense Ministry rejected accusations by the British foreign Minister, Boris Johnson, who said that Russian troops involved in the shelling of a humanitarian convoy of the United Nations in Aleppo, Syria in September, reports RIA “Novosti”.
The official representative of the military Department Igor Konashenkov said that “Russophobic hysteria” of individual members of the British establishment a long time does not produce serious impression, and invited Johnson to submit proof of his words.
“September 20 we are witnessing the third wave of accusations of alleged Russian involvement in the destruction of a humanitarian convoy to Aleppo.

Mr. Johnson, why don’t you open this “open access” and will show these pictures to anyone else?” – suggested the representative of the Ministry of defense.
