Russia chides Johnson over protest call

Russia has condemned Boris Johnson's call for demonstrations outside its London embassy as "shameful".

The foreign secretary said on Tuesday that he would "like to see" a protest against bombings of the Syrian city of Aleppo, which are being blamed on Vladimir Putin's forces.

But Moscow, which denies the claims, accused him of "Russophobic hysteria".
