Moscow says deal has been struck after UK imposes more sanctions on Russia
Russia is pulling out from a landmark fishing deal struck with Britain in 1956 as a response to further sanctions imposed by the UK.
The deal allowed British vessels into the rich fishing grounds of the Barents Sea, the coast of the Kola Peninsula and along the coast of Kolguyev Island.
The agreement was made in London by Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev in May 1956 at a turning point in the Cold War.
In the same year, he denounced Josef Stalin, proposed peaceful co-existence with the West and even visited Britain in April.
Vyacheslav Volodin, speaker of the State Duma lower house of parliament, said in a statement:“When Nikita Khrushchev accepted this deal in 1956, it is difficult to say what guided him but it was definitely not national interest.
“The British need to study some proverbs: ‘Russians harness the horse slowly, but ride it fast’.”
It comes as Britain on Wednesday imposed sanctions on six individuals in charge of the Arctic penal colony where Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny died last week.
Since the invasion began, Britain has repeatedly placed sanctions on Russia with increasing severity. The sanctions were declared as economic war by Duma, despite the country’s economy growing by 3.6 per cent last year.
