May Allocates £ 800 Million for Nuclear Deterrence Against Russian “Threat”

27
The British authorities have allocated an additional £ 800 million to support the nuclear deterrence system, including on submarines, reported the British Chancellor of the Treasury, Philip Hammond.


Our commitment to defense and national security is unwavering. The UK defense budget is the highest in Europe and the second largest in NATO, it provides the ability of Britain to continue to respond effectively to the ever-changing threats we confront
- declared Hammond.

May Allocates £ 800 Million for Nuclear Deterrence Against Russian “Threat”


In turn, British Prime Minister Theresa May said that sending additional funding to new nuclear submarines in the amount of 600 million pounds would help keep the country “safe” in the context of the deepening crisis in relations with Russia after the alleged “attack” on the ex- Colonel GRU Sergey Skrypal and his daughter using chemical weapons in Salisbury, reports the Financial Times.

The money will be allocated to the Dreadnought submarine department program.
- said Teresa May.

According to her, this will provide work on the creation of world-class submarines in the UK in accordance with the schedule and will be another sign of the government’s deep commitment to maintaining British security.

It is known that the new class of submarines "Dreadnought" will replace the aging class "Avangard", which currently have the Trident missiles.

      Let them spend money! The more they spend on weapons, the less will remain on research ...
      While they are arming, we produce new models that negate their efforts!

      So this is a no brainer, and for this
      the deepening crisis in relations with Russia after an alleged “attack” on ex-colonel of the GRU Sergei Skripal and his daughter using chemical weapons in Salisbury,
      At the same time, hang all the dogs in Russia.

        Again, these beads on the neck ... Do they have such a fashion there ..? Psaki at least it was going, such a girl is cute and naive! love And this May is a clear bitch and a vixen ..! Ksate is there in England, they suddenly remembered recently that the Russians have “Perimeter” systems (in their own words, “Dead Hand”) And it is being modernized! So gentlemen do not anger the Russians, I do not advise and study the history of Russia again, it will be useful to many .. hi

    "May has allocated £ 800 million for nuclear deterrence amid the Russian" threat "

    Most likely allocated for their own funeral, so it will be more accurate to say.

      Interestingly, 31 billion was allocated for this submarine fleet renewal program. Another 10 billion was allocated in case of unforeseen circumstances.
      And here vague doubts torment me ... is it possible that all anti-Russian hysteria is only in order to master 800 fs of fs without unnecessary questions? Louboutin leopard skin rose in price?

      Then, tell me, why is the moral and psychological preparation of the population of Western countries for war deployed? I don’t remember such hysteria even from the 70's ... Maybe after all, it’s time to check the “machine gun” already?

    All they have is four SSBNs with alien warheads. They deceive the old queen mother about the safety of the island, and for a long time.
    PS And the goals on the islands, respectively, are also few. No one needs to use special ammunition in London (there are more delicious places, for example, Holy Loch).

      Nebenzya walks on the sidelines of the UN and mumbles with a worried look:
      "Well, where else five? Well, where?"
      They ask him:
      -Vasiliy Alekseevich. What is your problem there? What is not converging there?
      -Yes, please, see, "Satan" carries ten warheads and the Britons are enough for the eyes and five. But where else to put five, I can’t imagine ...

      The warheads are just theirs, English. But rockets - 48 pcs. - American. And permission to launch is given by an American naval officer aboard the English SSBN.

    They do it in vain. All cities, bases and n.p. in Europe and the United States have long been under the attack of specific parts of the Russian Defense Ministry. God forbid war breaks out, life on Earth will cease. It’s better for you to withdraw Angosaxians from Europe. Russia has never attacked you and will not attack you. Russia is a self-sufficient country.

      They will answer for Sevastopol! Who waged the Crimean War? And who defended? Bandera? So at that time Bandera was not yet born ... Crimea is watered with the blood of Russian soldiers who defended Sevastopol from Anglo-French aggression and from Nazi hordes!

    allegedly "Attacks" on ex-Colonel GRU Sergei Skripal and his daughter using chemical weapons in Salisbury, according to the Financial Times.
    So I imagine the picture: A man in chemical protection runs behind the Skripal with a cry of “I will kill the infection!”.
    And the second one. It seems to me that Oleg Kaptsov and May are on a friendly foot. Yesterday, an article about the fleet of cool Britain, today May allocated money for nuclear weapons. Does she consult him?

    An additional 600 million pounds for the Dreadnought submarine program is about 2% of the previously planned 31 billion pounds for 4 nuclear submarines. Not too big a supplement, I think. By the way, the first in the history of the Royal British Navy the name "Dreadnought" was the ship of the fleet of Sir Francis Drake. Who does not know, this is a pirate to whom Elizabeth 1 conferred a knighthood, and a monument was erected in the United States. From there comes the Anglo-Saxon tradition of using crime in the public interest. Now answer, the United States is fighting or cooperating with ISIS? I think the answer is obvious ...
