Don’t Worry About the Tanks

Oh, well I suppose this is a “reassuring sign” from the London-Moscow dispute over the allegedly “illegal” operations of the British Council in Russia. The Guardian quotes James Kennedy, who heads up the St. Petersburg office of British Council:

Asked what the Russian side’s next move might be, he said: “All sorts of things might happen. But Lavrov has said that we should not expect tanks outside the British Council. I think this is most unlikely.”

That’s really kind of Moscow to let those nefarious English teachers know that they don’t have to worry about any tanks…
