British Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson said that Russia, China and the DPRK pose a greater threat to Britain’s security than terrorism. It is reported by Kommersant with reference to The Times.


The head of the Ministry of defense of Great Britain again saw in Russia a threat


Mr. Williamson, speaking before the parliamentary committee on defense issues, said that the strengthening of the power of Russia and China “took the whole world by surprise”.

We need to take a look at how we can increase investment to cope with this threat, which we have not had to deal with over the past 25 years.
Said the minister. He called North Korea "a country that is beginning to play a big role in the world."

In January, in an interview with The Daily Telegraph, Gavin Williamson said that Russia was studying the British gas and electricity supply system and was looking for vulnerabilities in the UK infrastructure. Later, information appeared that the minister thus gave out secret information, but in the British Ministry of Defense this information was rejected.

        What kind of treacherous Russia is that? She always “intends to destroy everyone”, she is going to attack all the time, but she never attacked.

          Well, if someone really provokes you by physical abuse or death, as the collective West does against Russia, do you calmly - like a sheep - look at it and wake up until you are cut off or your dignity is stripped? Of course not!
          Therefore, of course, that a possible answer for the enemies of Russia - with their constant desire to destroy Russia - really scares them!

          In addition, there are 2 conditions for an aggressor to attack a victim country. It:
          1. get permission to war from their own people. For this purpose, in the eyes of the public, they specifically demonize a country - a victim of aggression.
          2) to create an armed coalition of allied countries to seize foreign territories, i.e. the victim country of aggression.
          What the War Secretary of Defense of England does in his statement.

    The role of the pug is not the first to fulfill it, let them bark, the main thing is that the Khrustam on the red square cannot be prepared for the runway, as last time.

    So what, they shout and be afraid how Moldova or Georgia piles on them? In this case, as always go in the tail of the Americans, they forget their sins.
    Who will pay for the restoration of Iraq, gentlemen, mattress dogs?

    I smoked something and everyone sees it. Although, what is not a threat, the loss of the opportunity to spoil impunity all over the planet with impunity? And they are terrorists for their arrogant Saxons, like pirates in those days.
