According to Johnson, «all available evidence» indicated that Russia was guilty in the attack on the convoy in Syria.

The head of the British diplomatic corps added that there is reason to investigate committed in Syria war crimes in the international court in the Hague.

Johnson believes that Russia risks becoming a pariah if it continues to bomb civilian targets in Syria, and international institutions should do more to punish Moscow with sanctions.

«If Russia continues to act in this way as it is now, I think this great country is in danger of becoming a pariah,» said Johnson, speaking in Parliament.

He also called to organize anti-war protests at the Russian Embassy.

We will remind, the scandalous destruction of the convoy by the air forces of Bashar al-Assad and the Russian Federation took place on 20 September.

After that, a number of representatives of the international community, in particular, the leader of the presidential race in the United States , Hillary Clinton, us Secretary of state John Kerry, the current head of the French state Francois Hollande and many others condemned the crime, calling the ruling in Russia regime of Vladimir Putin is directly involved in the tragedy, and demanded to thoroughly investigate this incident.

In addition, Hollande said that this matter should be dealt with by the international criminal court in the Hague.

«We do not agree with what Russia is doing, causing air strikes on Aleppo. France as never before strives to save the population of Aleppo,» — said in turn the head of the French foreign Ministry Jean-Marc Ayrault.

Besides, the French party was outraged by blocking the Russians on the UN security Council the draft of their latest resolution on Syria.

Hollande to protest against Russian policy on Syria did not rule out the abolition is tentatively scheduled for October 19 the official visit to Paris, his Russian counterpart. In any case, stressed Hollande, he would be sure to raise this issue during his meeting with Putin.

After this statement, Putin refused to travel to France, where after a long break, had held a meeting in the Normandy format on the settlement of the Russian-Ukrainian military conflict in the Donbass. Discussion of the situation in Syria was not provided.

Due to the brutal Russian bombing of opposition forces in Syria, the leadership of the European Union will ease sanctions imposed against Russia for aggression against Ukraine. Besides, in Brussels do not rule out new punitive measures against the Kremlin. It is reported ZN.ua citing Western media, which in turn have data from sources in diplomatic circles.

Despite the fact that the EU considers the war in Ukraine and Syria as a separate problem, the latest data about the cruelty of Moscow and Damascus to Aleppo will not benefit the Russian-European relations. Italy and Hungary were constantly increased the pressure in Brussels, calling for the easing of the sanctions and return to normal relations with Russia. But now their grip has weakened. «It is obvious that the attacks in Aleppo have changed the point of perspective of some. It will be impossible to promote the easing of sanctions against Russia over the Ukraine on the background of such a context», — said the Minister of foreign Affairs of the EU countries.

An unnamed diplomat from France supported this view, adding: «After Aleppo the chances that sanctions against Russia over Ukraine will be lifted, became virtually zero.»

«The situation is moving from bad to worse. No one would dare to ask for leniency. At this stage, «doves of peace» will be happy if everything will remain as it is,» said another diplomat from Brussels.
