On Wednesday, Russian Defense Ministry suggests UK officials learn more about Russian history.
Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said UK troops should learn more about the history of Russia, answering UK Defense Secretary Ben Wallace's allegations that the United Kingdom is ready to strike at Russian interests.
Previously on the day, the UK Defense Secretary said the UK regiment "kicked the backside" of Russia during the Crimean War, comparing Putin to Czar Nicholas I.
"We recommend British troops to study well not only Russia's geography but also its history in order to avoid enriching our shared military history with their lives for the benefit of ill-educated British politicians", the Russian spokesman said.
Konashenkov remarked for Wallace the so-called Charge of the Light Brigade when Russian artillery massacred UK light cavalry in the Battle of Balaclava during the Crimean war.
