Russian MFA Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova Criticizes UK with Hard-Hitting but Factual Reminder

Russian MFA Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova Criticizes UK with Hard-Hitting but Factual Reminder

This is not pleasant to hear this reminder… Factually she is obviously right. However blame Britain for their very dark past doesn’t makes Russia look good at the present. Or as the Russian saying: Победителей не судят" (winners can’t be judged).
“The expansion of the British Empire was the largest among the Western European states in terms of geography; it covered almost every region in the world. It was built, to a large extent, based on an idea of the cultural and religious exceptionalism of the British as promoted by London.

While occupying rich countries and territories, the British exploited them economically, drained them of resources and used them as raw material colonies and markets for their goods.

To keep other peoples under control, London did not hesitate to use the harshest methods. The animal cruelty of British colonizers is astonishing, as evidenced during the fight for independence in India or during the 1899-1902 Second Boer War, when the Brits created the world’s first concentration camps, where even children were used as a workforce...

The British colonial machine basically ground down millions of people in Africa and radically changed the continent’s demographic picture. One can rightfully say that the British are responsible for the genocide of the peoples in Africa, India (the British Empire intentionally starved Indian territories believing that it would suppress the independence movement), as well as the indigenous peoples in Australia and Tasmania, exterminating up to 90 percent of the local population."
