UK Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson: Russia should go away, shut up

May and Putin

Former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia are in critical condition after being poisoned in the southern English city of Salisbury on March 4. Frankly, Russia should go away, and it should shut up. It's absolutely atrocious what Russian Federation did in Salisbury.

"What we will do is we will look at how Russian Federation responds to what we have done".

"But if they do respond to the action that we have taken, we'll consider it carefully and we'll look at our options, but it would be wrong to pre-judge their response". Sources said the risks were overseas, not in the UK.

British authorities are nervous and have "something to hide", the Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson has said in response to brash comments by the United Kingdom defense secretary, who told Moscow to "go away and shut up".

The South Staffordshire MP will say that the programme, launched in January and due to report in the summer, will give Britain a "more productive, harder-hitting joint force", which is able to counter conventional threats and "deal with the new challenges of asymmetric conflict".

"They are effectively invading independent nation states and not caring about global reactions".


'As Brexit beckons, the eyes of the world are on us.

"Russia has in my view made a deliberate political decision in terms of attacking Britain".

"It is often characterized as the cool war. I would say it is feeling exceptionally chilly at the moment".

As he called for the whole country "to unite" with the Prime Minister, Williamson pleaded: 'You see it in the House of Commons and you listen to members of Parliament from all parties on the backbenches.

Zakharova added: 'London has something to hide.
