Russia sides with Corbyn against Cameron

Russia has aligned itself to Labour and its new leader Jeremy Corbyn - if Twitter is anything to go by.

The official Twitter page of the Russian Embassy in the UK has criticised a dramatic video made by the Conservatives which calls Labour "a threat to national security".

"Just imagine UK media headlines if the Russian President called a leading opposition party a threat to national security," tweeted Russian Embassy, UK.

Russia's Ambassador to the UK has also publicly congratulated Mr Corbyn on his new role as Labour leader.
