Kremlin hopes for 'more professional' UK leaders

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday that Russia hopes that a "more professional" leadership will succeed the government of reportedly-outgoing United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

The UK has "a very complicated political system" and "a person who has no public support at all can lead the government" there, the Russian official noted. "Mr. Johnson... doesn't like us very much. We don't like him either," Peskov told Russian media.

The spokesman also clarified that the UK government crisis is not a "priority" for Moscow.
