The British government has recognized Russia as a "significant threat"

Although the UK parliamentary intelligence committee found no sign of Russian interference in the referendum on the country's exit from the EU, the British government considers Russia a "significant" threat and a top national security priority. This is stated in the official statement of the British Cabinet.


The UK has long recognized that there remains a significant threat to Britain and its allies from Russia, including conventional arms, disinformation, illicit funding, influence operations and cyber attacks. (...) Russia remains a top national security priority for the government

- said in a statement.

In addition, the published document states that the British government intends to "expose the working methods of the GRU."

The government will continue to increase its understanding of what measures the GRU is taking against the UK and its allies, shedding light on its activities, exposing methods and sharing information about them with our allies. We will use the full range of tools to counter the threat from the GRU and will work closely with our allies to ensure our defense

- said the government.

It also states that the British government intends to support in Russia "human rights defenders and other representatives of civil society who are under increasing pressure from the Russian authorities."

Earlier, the British Parliament's Intelligence Committee issued a report saying that there was no evidence of Russian attempts to somehow influence Brexit. However, despite this, in the report, the committee calls for increased pressure on Russia.

        Are you serious?
        Believe me, this is not a thrill, but true anger over the fact that Russia does not obey the Anglo-Saxons. And no more. The Anglo-Saxon mentality is based on the fact that everyone in the world should obey them and only in this case it will be possible to hear from them an approving word addressed to the subordinate country.
        And Russia, like China, North Korea, Iran and Venezuela, do not want to bend under the Anglo-Saxons and therefore are a "significant threat" for them.

          In fact, we have our own mentality, according to which anyone who believes that we should obey him must retire in the woods in a direction that can only be formulated in Russian. And the Anglo-Saxons can shove their approving words into the rear "bill acceptor"

                The conditions for the confiscation of capital abroad were provided by the courts of Berezovsky and Abramovich in England. There, in court proceedings, they proved the criminal basis of billions of dollars in available funds. That is why Berezovsky was "turned down" by setting up all those megavors for confiscation ...

      Probably, it would be nice for the ear of a Russian citizen to hear once from the lips of a representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, for example:
      “The Russian Federation has long recognized that there remains a significant threat to it and its allies from the UK, including the volume of conventional weapons, disinformation, illicit funding, influence operations and cyberattacks. (...) The UK remains a top national priority for the Russian government. in the field of security ... "

      or such:
      “... The government will continue to build awareness of what MI6 is doing against the Russian Federation and its allies, shed light on its activities, expose methods and share information about them with our allies. We will use the full range of tools to counter the threat from outside MI6 and will work closely with our allies to ensure our defense ... "

      and at the end this:
      "... However, in light of the greatness and power of the Russian Federation, its allies and supporters around the world, we recognize the UK as a minor misunderstanding."

      Will we just wait?

    Are the British building a coalition of countries ready to attack Russia again? By the middle of the century, they usually do this. So it was in the XNUMXth century, so it was in the XNUMXth century. It remains to find some maniac who will lead this "coalition" for a pinch of tobacco. Naturally, this should not be British. However, by the middle of the XXI century it is difficult to find a new A. Hitler, although it is possible if desired. This is what the British elite, supported by the elders from the United States, are doing. But when they think about retaliation, it becomes scary. Therefore, apparently, they changed their tactics: they decided to starve out.

    If I’m not mistaken, Catherine the Great gave an assessment of Great Britain as “The Englishwoman shits everything.” And nothing in this world has changed, only something has changed since then.
