The Embassy of the United Kingdom in Moscow is the chief diplomatic mission of the United Kingdom in the Russian Federation. It is located at 10 Smolenskaya Naberezhnaya (Russian: Смоленская набережная, 10) in the Arbat District of Moscow. The current ambassador is Deborah Bronnert CMG.
The Embassy site at 10 Smolenskaya Embankment, comprising 0.92 hectares, was offered to the British Government in the mid-1960s and exchanged for two sites in London by an Agreement signed in March 1987. The building contains offices for 250 Embassy staff; 31 flats for staff and facilities for their recreation and welfare, including swimming pool and cafeteria; medical centre and kindergarten; workshops and stores; and covered car parking for 85 cars. The architects of the embassy were Ahrends, Burton and Koralek (ABK) of London and Dublin. The embassy was officially opened by Anne, Princess Royal on 17 May 2000.
Outside Moscow, there is one British Consulate-General in Ekaterinburg where the senior officer is known as the Consul-General. There was a British Consulate General in St. Petersburg but it was closed in 2018 due to a diplomatic fallout following the poisoning of a former Russian intelligence officer in the United Kingdom.
