atynews.com – Britain calls for Russia to be a threat and can pose a threat to Europe, especially Britain and the world.
Reporting from Sputnik, Wednesday (08/08/2018), This was stated by the British Minister of Defense, Gavin Williamson in a statement.
“In 2015, when we evaluated the situation in the world, we stated that Russia was a threat,” Williamson said.
“I think the experience that the world has gained since 2015 shows that it poses a threat, not only to Great Britain, or to Europe, but for many other countries in the world,” he continued.
He also highlighted the problem of Russian actions and policies that are increasingly aggressive in various regions of the world. He said that Russia was not reluctant to use the military in achieving its objectives.
“We see increasing competition between countries. Iran which sponsors terror, nuclear-armed North Korea, does not forget to mention China is on the rise, Russia is increasingly aggressive in using every weapon it has to advance its interests,” he said.
“Russia, which uses covert operations and cyber warfare, political subversion and increased military posture is part of a broader pattern of defamatory behavior,” Williamson said.
