Welcoming increased trade and cultural links between the UK and Russia, Mr Johnson said: "I'm delighted to say that there are increasing exports of British kettle crisps to Russia and 300 Bentleys have been sold this year in Russia - not, I believe necessarily to employees of the Foreign Ministry but nonetheless a sign of progress."

Mr Johnson's jibe at the possibility of imported luxury cars being snapped up by Russian state officials prompted a silent laugh from Mr Lavrov.

I am not sure I understand the Telegraph’s interpretation here. How is this a jibe at the possibility of imported luxury cars being snapped up by state officials? I would have read it as a joke that there are wealthier Russians than those who work at the Foreign Ministry.
