The Russian authorities have raised concerns about Russian nationals resident in the UK with myself and other Government Ministers. But it would not be appropriate for me to comment on the legal position of any individuals. As my right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary made clear on 13 April, we deplore any statement which appears to call for the overthrow of the Russian Government by force.
