The Russian embassy in London has accused the BBC of spreading cliches about the “Russian mafia”.

A few days earlier, diplomats criticized the TV series “McMafia” produced by the BBC, for depicting the United Kingdom as a site for the criminal activities of “Russian gangsters.” 

The embassy asked subscribers on Twitter the question of how many prisoners from Russia are actually in the UK prison system. There were four variants of the answer: more than three hundred, from hundred to three hundred, from ten to hundred and less than ten.

“The correct answer is less than 10. The level of crime among Russians in the UK is much lower than the national average.” It’s nice that our subscribers are not buying into the BBC-distributed cliches.

The series, released on the screens in 2018, tell the story of the son of the former boss of the “Russian mafia” who lives in the UK.
