Russia to Britain DO not ‘threaten a nuclear power’ Putin raises the stakes over nerve agent attack on spy in Salisbury
- Theresa May secured support of Donald Trump for her response to Salisbury
- She already had the backing of France and Germany to stand up to Moscow
- The Kremlin has hit back with dark warnings not to threaten a nuclear power
- Moscow said it would retaliate if May delivers on threatened ‘punitive’ respons
Russia last night issued a chilling warning to Britain not to threaten a nuclear power as Kremlin officials ignored Theresa May’s midnight deadline to explain how the nerve agent that poisoned a former spy found its way into Britain. As Mrs May prepared to unveil retaliatory measures against Moscow, Vladimir Putin’s officials refused to explain how Sergei Skripal was poisoned with the military-grade chemical weapon. And – in a coded reference to President Putin’s boasts about his nuclear arsenal – Russian officials warned: ‘Any threat to take punitive measures against Russia will meet with a response. The British side should be aware of that.’ Moscow did not comply with a deadline of midnight last night to answer Britain’s questions about the poisoning outrage in Salisbury ten days ago. This means that – with the backing of the US, Germany and France – Mrs May is now heading toward a showdown with President Putin and his regime. Nick Bit: Russia is out of control. They feel they can do what they want because they have the “video”. Why has Trump not approved even 1 sanction against Russia? Think about IT!
